Parking and transportation to the University College


Parking at Østfold University College shall only take place in designated places. In both Halden and Fredrikstad, there are clearly stated parking spaces for cars, electric cars, motorcycles / bicycles and the disabled.

Parking spaces for electric cars are not permitted for use by hybrid cars. Fines can be imposed on those who e.g. park outside marked fields or designated parking space. The same applies to hybrid cars that park in electric car spaces. These are only reserved for electric cars.

It is important that all HiØ's students, employees and visitors follow the parking instructions described with signs on both Remmen and Kråkerøy. This is to ensure access for rescue vehicles, prevent damage to park facilities, accidents due to congestion - and avoid confinement.

Important information for electric car users

Employees, students and visitors to HiØ who use an electric car must obtain a "green" card at the receptions in Fredrikstad and Halden and place the card visible on the dashboard. The reason we require cards is that these spaces should not be used by anyone other than employees, students and visitors - not other external parties. Note that in order to get a parking card for places for an electric car, the distance between home and place of study must be a minimum of 20 kilometers (one way).

Bike parking

There is bicycle parking at both campuses in marked areas. There is also a superstructure so you can leave your bike dry and well.
