Student accommodation in the Faroe Islands

Studieboliger på Færøerne
Here you can read about the accommodation possibilities if you are coming to the Faroe Islands to study.

If you will be coming to the Faroe Islands as a student and are looking for rented accommodation, you can first of all consult the upper secondary schools. Some schools have associated school homes with rooms for rent for those students who live furthest away from the school.

There are for example school homes in Tórshavn andKlaksvik (in Faroese)in association with the technical schools, which are also intended for use by students at other schools. The school homes have furnished rooms for rent, with a shared kitchen and living room.   

At the hospital in Tórshavn student accommodation and small apartments (in Danish) are available for persons in practical training or who are working for a short period of time in the health service.

Renting and buying

There are no housing associations in the Faroe Islands, and the whole rental and buying market for real estate is on a private basis. In the coming years, however, rental and co-operative housing will be established in various places around the Faroe Islands.

You can find a room, an apartment or a house to buy or rent in the advertising pages of the newspaper  Sosialurin  or at the trading portal www.torg.fo.

The purchase of houses, summer cottages, apartments and building plots typically takes place via the websites of the real estate companies Inni and Skyn, and via privately practising lawyers. (All links here in Faroese.)
