Steinerud is a station on the lower part of Holmenkoll Line (line 1) of the Oslo T-bane system. It is located between Frøen and Vinderen at an altitude of 75.6 metres above sea level.[1] The station had 244 passengers daily in 2004.[2]

The station was built in 1900, two years after the line was opened. It opened as Diakonhjemmet, and was located on Stasjonsveien, where the road intersected with Lille Borgenveien and Sverrestien, and built to serve the near-by hospital Diakonhjemmet. Beside the station was the road Slemdalsveien that crossed the line. Of safety reasons, the crossing was closed, and after that Frøen Station became a more convenient stop for people going to the hospital. As a consequence, the station changed its name in 1936, though not without local protests: few knew that the hospital had been built on the farm named Steinerud, while linguistic conservatives wanted the station to be named Stenerud.[3][4]
