Subway: Take line 4 (Vestli) westbound or line 5 (Ringen - both directions) to Forskningsparken. Exit the platform on the same side where you arrived, and walk straight until you come to the University. Continue to the second tall (12-story) building, see description above (Location).

Take the Airport Express train to the Nationalteateret, then the subway line 6 (Sognsvann) or line 4 (Ringen) or westbound to Forskningsparken, see description above (Subway). The Airport Express train leaves every 20 minutes, the travel time is 25 minutes, and the price is NOK 180.
Taking a taxi is about NOK 700-1000 depending on the time of day. Ask for a fixed price when starting the trip. However, we strongly recommend that you take the Airport Express train to Oslo as It is both cheaper and faster, and then a taxi from there to the Department.

The fastest way to get from the airport to Scandic Holberg Hotel is to take the Airport Express train to Nationaltheatret (National Theatre). The Airport Express train leaves every 20 minutes, the travel time is 25 minutes, and the price is NOK 180. When you get to Nationaltheatret station, walk along Frederiks gate past the Royal Palace.
