There are two airports in Oslo: Gardermoen International Airport and Torp International Airport. Gardermoen is the nearest one to Gjøvik and has a direct bus to Gjøvik every 2 hours. The bus leaves from the platform outside the arrival hall. The bus ride takes 1 hour and 40 minutes.

The bus time table from Gardermoen is available at or directly on this page. When you arrive at the bus station in Gjøvik, the university college (symposium venue) and hotels are a short walk away.
