How do I find a place to live in Tromso?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"We found our place to live off the internet site here in Norway Finn.no. We weren't concerned about neighborhood as much as we were concerned about finding a place to live. Its a University island so places go fast and there's not a lot available," explained one expat living in Tromso, Norway.

"Finding a place to live in Tromso is easy. There are a variety of options to choose from, including privately-rented apartments and houses, social housing, student accommodation, and more. The Norwegian State Housing Bank offers subsidies and rent deduction options, and rental agencies like Finn.no and Hybelportalen offer an extensive range of rental properties. The websites of Tromso University, student unions, and NGOs such as Frifond are also good sources of information and could help you find suitable accommodation. Additionally, local newspapers and search engines such as Airbnb and Booking.com have listings of accommodation options," said one person in Tromso.
