With digital membership you get free access (within the house’s opening hours) to the studio, scanners and A3 printer (printer is only for personal use and paper is not included). Docu membership is also embedded in the digital membership fee.

Darkroom membership gives you access to the darkroom at Chateau Neuf, including developing tanks, enlargers etc. If you have a student card from the University of Oslo you get access with this card. Docu and digital membership is also embedded in the darkroom membership fee.
NB! All kinds of membership require membership in the Norwegian Students’ Society in order for you to gain access to the house. More on this here:

Membership Form

If you want to join, you have to fill out the form, which at the moment only is in Norwegian. We are working on an English form as well, but for the moment just use Google Translate or ask us if anything is unclear. Remember that you also have to become a member of The Norwegian Student Society (DNS) – more info on that here

Access To The Darkroom

If you want to become a darkroom member and have an access card issued by the University of Oslo (student ID or employee card) we need your card number – this is on the back of the card. Also, remember that your card needs a four-digit code to work on the doors of Chateau Neuf. If you haven’t already decided such a code for your card, you can take it to the SiO card center (behind Akademika on the Frederikke square) to arrange this.

If you do not have a UiO card, please let us know so that we can start the process of issuing one.

Membership Obligations

According to the bylaws, all members are committed to participate in our monthly meetings. At these meetings you will be informed about the operation of the club and opportunities for various photographic assignments.

All members also need to participate in at least one volunteer duty during the semester, such as docu-assignments, voluntary work, wardrobe / bar duties etc.
