A room for thoughts, a room for prayer, a room to rest/nurse. If you feel the need to step back and take a break, make use of the quiet rooms at HiOA. Here is an overview of the quiet rooms at your campus.
In the quiet room you may relax, pray, sleep, nurse, meditate, or think. You will find the quiet room in the SiO hall, behind Akademika bookstore . You may reserve the room for one hour at a time. You reserve the room by signing the list on the door.
In Pilestredet you may choose between several rooms for belief, though and rest:
The quiet rooms
In the quiet room in Pilestredet 48 you may light a candle for reflection and hope. The room has a little library with books from different religious traditions. Please feel free to write down thoughts you wish to share in the copy book. At one end of the room there is a triptych made by the designer Gunnar Torvund. The triptych may be opened and closed. At the other end of the room there is a decoration by Grete Refsum. A Qibla label shows the direction towards Mecca.
Please contact the student chaplain if you have any questions in connection with the use of the room. You may make regular use of the room by making an appointment with the student chaplain. You will find the quiet room in Pilestredet 48, inside the Learning Centre and Library at the ground floor.
If you have a migraine, need a short break due to illness or want to nurse your child in peace and quiet, you may use the quiet room in Pilestredet 52, ground floor .

The rooms are created to prepare for Muslims who want to pray during the daytime and are open for all students. Both prayer rooms are equipped with shoe racks and carpets on the floor.
We ask all visitors to take their shoes off before they enter the room.
