The Department for Facilities Management assists the units whenever the need to reconstruct or facilitate new ways of using teaching rooms, group study rooms, meeting rooms, workplaces and social zones arises. When developing and reconstructing the OsloMet area, these are our fundamental principles: Area efficiency, joint use, standardization and flexibility.
How to report your needs
How you report your need depends on the extent of the work you require. Reconstruction and maintenance projects are divided into three categories based on how extensive they are:
If you need:
- Repair and improvement of unforeseen damage or defects in the building
- Regular maintenance to prevent decay due to regular and normal wear and tear
- Normal building operations
- For example: paint, replacement of faulty furniture and doors
Point of contact
- Contact the Facilities Management Support Service (BIE)
- You can report needs on a continuous basis
By medium-sized projects we intend projects with:
- A budget up to 1.5 MNOK
- A project period of 1-3 years
Examples of medium-sized projects are:
- A change in the way we currently use a premise
- Reconstruction from offices to activity-based workplaces
- Adapting areas
Facilities Management will carry out as many projects as possible subject to the constraints of its annual budget limits. If the faculty can contribute with its own funds, the chance of a quick implementation / prioritisation of the project will increase. Reported needs from the faculties are prioritised based on pre-defined criteria at the Department for Facilities Management.
Point of contact:
A submission form is sent out from the Department for Facilities Management by e-mail to the faculty management. All inputs and needs from the faculties will be received once a year (autumn).
The following elements characterise property investment projects:
- A budget of more than 1.5 MNOK
- A project period of more than 6 months
- An extent and complexity that makes a preliminary project necessary
- Resource utilisation from several units
- The projects produce benefits across the organisation
Examples of property investment projects:
- Student house in P52
- Renewal of the ground floor and student workplaces in P35
- New flexible master workplaces for collaboration across the organisation
Point of contact:
A submission form is sent out from the Department for Facilities Management by e-mail to the faculty management. All inputs and needs from the faculties will be received once a year (autumn). When the Department for Facilities Management defines a project as an investment project, it must be reported to the Service Council for processing and approved by the Rector before initiation. A long-term plan must be drawn up for the project.

Real estate projects that are strategic investments require their own budgetary resources and are approved at the overarching level. Developing a new campus at Romerike is an example.

Dialogue arenas for the units and the Department for Facilities Management
- Facilities Management Forum, 4 times a year
- Executive meeting, 2-4 times a year
- Individual meetings between the faculty / unit and the Department for Facilities Management
