LUILOK 2.0 addresses the faculty's future localisation, academic development and interests in relation to OsloMet’s Campus programme.
LUILOK 2.0: Academic year 2022-2023
The project has three main areas in the academic year 2022-2023:
- Processes related to academic activities at Campus Lillestrøm.
- Working areas in Pilestredet, short term and long term solutions.
- Boost of Campus Kjeller for employees and students at the faculty.
Feasibility study autumn 2020
LUILOK carried out a feasibility study in autumn 2020, which generated potential localisation concepts. The possibilities are on different scales when it comes to price, scope, quality and organisational consequences. These possibilities are described in a report from the feasibility study. The report is intended to give the project’s steering committee a good decision-making basis for initiating a pre-project.
The different possibilities outlined in the report are:
- Possibility 1: Densification
- Possibility 2: Team offices / Cellular offices and open-plan offices
- Possibility 3: Activity-based workplace

Pre-project spring 2021
The LUILOK project group conducted a pre-project in spring 2021 based on guidelines devised during the feasibility study by LUILOK’s steering committee. The pre-project addressed the commissions in OsloMet’s campus programme:
- A progress schedule for closing and moving out of the Kjeller campus (deadline: 1 May 2021). The document is available via OpenGov (opengov.360online.com, in Norwegian).
- Cooperation possibilities at the future campus in Romerike (deadline for preliminary input: 1 April 2021, deadline for final input: 1 July 2021).
- An overall plan of how offices and areas at the Pilestredet campus can be used (deadline: 1 May 2021). The document is available via OpenGov (opengov.360online.com, in Norwegian).
Based on input from meetings with the entities, the project group continued its assessment with an emphasis on Possibility 1 for the majority of entities. For some of the entities, the continued assessment will be based on Possibility 1, densification in cellular offices combined with various wishes for shared/open-plan solutions.
Study of two alternatives in the pre-project
Two alternatives were elected for further study:
Alternative 1: Densification, mainly by combining cellular offices and team offices.
Alternative 2: A hybrid based on reported needs from the entities. This can include, for example, combinations of cellular offices, team offices and open-plan offices.
Based on instructions from the Campus Programme, the project included an increased efficiency of the areas, ranging from 10 to 25 per cent increased efficiency. In the overall plan of how offices and areas at the Pilestredet campus can be used submitted by the Faculty on 1 May, LUI included an increased efficiency of 10 per cent. The report showed that integration of Department YLU in Pilestredet would require further development of labs ("spesialarealer", "spesialrom").
On 1 April, 2021, the faculty submitted the first draft for input om Campus Romerike to the OsloMet Campus Programme. The document stated that the Faculty has extensive collaboration with Oslo and Viken, including the Romerike region, and are positive with regard to increased future collaboration that aims to develop our study programmes, research and practical training.
The Faculty considered a common location in Pilestredet to be suitable for the future, with possibilities for activity-based presence at Romerike.
The final input on Campus Romerike was submitted on 1 July. The document stated that the faculty considers an activity-based presence at Romerike/Jessheim to be better suited for fulfilling the faculty's strategies, than permanent localisation of study programmes. The exception is the driving teacher education, which would benefit from being localised at Romerike.
Academic year 2021-2022
The LUILOK project worked according to requests from the OsloMet campus programme, while also preparing for the next phase of the project.

LUILOK involves the public sector unions and safety representatives in line with the applicable laws, regulations and internal policy for tripartite cooperation. The project has regular meetings with participating bodies at the faculty.
During autumn 2020 and spring 2021, the project had a reference group with representatives from the project’s most important stakeholders – the staff and students. The reference group took part in regular meetings with the project group.
In spring 2022, the project will establish "thematic user groups".
