Due to a high demand for rental apartments in Oslo, the price has increased significantly the recent years. However, the price for apartments for rent in Oslo vary according to the location.

To find out what apartments for rent in Oslo cost, the import thing to look at is the neighbourhood. The City Centre of Oslo, also called Sentrum, is the most popular area of Oslo. The popularity of the City Center also makes it the most expensive compared to other parts of the city. In April 2020 the average cost for a 1 bedroom apartment was around 13.000 NOK per month. If a 1 bedroom apartment is too small and you want something bigger, you will have to pay around 20.000 NOK per month for a 3 bedroom apartment. For many people these prices are way over their budget. If this is the case, you can choose to move out of the City Center to other parts of Oslo. Outside the Centre, the prices are a bit lower and more reasonable. Here you can rent a 1 bedroom apartment for around 10.000 NOK per month and a 3 bedroom apartment for 16.000 NOK per month.
