Høgskoleveien 8 comprises three buildings. The main building was erected in 1954, and is a combined laboratory and office building. It was later supplemented with the north building (Nordbygget), a free-standing building with laboratory, workshop and offices, and with the east block (Østblokka).
As well as laboratories, workshops, offices and meeting rooms H8 has a library and a canteen.
The buildings in H8 today house most of the Division of Forest and Forest Resources as well as parts of the Division of Biotechnology and Plant Health and the Division of Environment and Natural Resources.
