The HouseAmatøren is the student house at Sogn Student Village.
It used to be a restaurant and pub in the house. After this "Tavern at Sogn" closed its doors, a group of students started Amatøren in 1998.The arrangements is organised by a volunteering board, and they include concerts, parties, gaming nights among other things. It is also possible to rent rehersal rooms for bands, to rent rooms to e.g. meeting for student associations or to rent the house for a party. In the pub you can play both pool and fussball for free, or borrow board games.
Amatøren is a part of SiOs offering for students, and all its income is used on student welfare. The non-students are of course also welcome to visit!
The BoardThe Organisation "Amatøren" is run by a volunteer board consisting of students. They organize arrangements, work with promotion, co-ordinate rental and do a lot of volunteer work to make Amatøren run. We are always looking for positive people who want to work at Amatøren!
