The kitchens are the core of your social everyday life on the dorm. Those you share a kitchen with you’ll see often and probably party a lot with, as well as eat with. Most kitchens are the same size as two rooms put together and are meant for the use of 11-12 rooms. There exists larger kitchens on the second floor of the dorm where the larger apartments are.
The kitchens were thoroughly renovated in 2010 and are generally kept in a nice condition. They are well equipped with 2 sets of induction cooktops (Installed in 2017), 2 ovens, a dishwasher, an electric kettle and a large functioning sink. The room that is an extension of the kitchen is arranged differently from kitchen to kitchen. In addition to the already existing equipment from the dorm, kitchens can of course buy other types of equipment for common use. This is decided in the individual kitchens. You shape how your kitchen looks and your own social life there.
You can read more about the equipment in the kitchens under Home appliances – here you’ll also find the equipment manuals.
You will need to share a fridge with (typically) five other residents and get one or two cupboards for your food. The kitchens are, other than Home appliances, well equipped with plates, pots, pans, cutlery, glasses etc. There is continuous refilling so that worn out pots, pans etc. gets replaced. Furthermore, each kitchen gets 500 kr. from the dorm which can be used to improve the kitchen. Perhaps with a rod to hang pans from, maybe a new microwave oven or a waffel iron. The most important thing though, in order to spent the money is to approve the use at a ktichen meeting with a record and that a receipt can be produced. Otherwise, no money can be collected.
