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).

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. 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:

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.
Students from other institutions must register their social security number in order for UiO to grant you access to Chateau Neuf.

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.
