The student cabin
The student cabin «Bergstua» is located in Vågan along Norwegian national road (Riksvei) 80 in the direction of Fauske, approximately 17 km from the campus on Mørkved.
The cabin is beautifully situated near the sea, as well as being a good starting point for adventures into the woods. It is best suitable for groups of up to 6 people, but there is enough space for 8 people to spend a night or two.
In 2009, the cabin underwent a total renovation and is now in good condition. It received a new and large terrace, new windows and doors, new kitchen, new interior solutions and new furniture. The cabin has electricity, but no running water. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a TV and stereo. There is one bedroom with a twin over full bunk bed, and a steep staircase takes you to a spacious loft with sleeping areas both to the right and left. The cabin has an outhouse toilet.

The rental price is 250,- NOK per night and 450,- NOK for the weekend (two nights). Deposit 500,- NOK.

What do I bring

Where do I find the cabin
The student cabin is located in Vågan, approx. 17 km from the campus on Mørkved. It can be a little difficult to see the cabin from the road, so we recommend that you study the map in advance. Search Google Maps on "Bodøveien 2345". Make sure you do not choose Bodøveien Fauske.
- Going by bus - direction of Fauske, you can get off at «Indre Vågan» or at «Gamøyran». The cabin is located approximately midway between the two stops.
- Driving by car, take the Norwegian national road (Riksvei) 80 towards Fauske. When you get to a sign that says «Reitan» it's about 1.8 km left.
The cabin is on the left side of the road. After passing under a railway bridge, you reach a long straight stretch. This ends in a slight right turn, and here you have to slow down and be aware. On the left side of the road there is a space where you can park your car. About 600 meters further ahead there is a car park where you can turn the car, if needed.
From the road you follow a red arrow sign and walk up the path into the woods passing two other cabins. After about 100 meters the student cabin appears on your left.
You should see a sign that says "Bergstua". Welcome to the cabin!
