Services

Housing services

Normally, all students are allocated student housing in the spring semester. In the autumn semester, some students will have to find private housing: 

  • Most international master's degree students enrolled in a full degree (not exchange) at NTNU, are guaranteed student housing. However, master students living in Norway or one of the Nordic countries will not be considered for student housing. 
  • Exchange students from non-EU/non-EEA countries, who applied within the deadline (1 April/1 October), are guaranteed housing. Exchange students from EU/EEA/Switzerland are not guaranteed housing. Nordic students will not be considered for student housing in the autumn semester. 

Library services

NTNU University Library is a public scientific library, established in 1996 with the establishment of NTNU. The library, however, has roots back to the library of the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Lettersfrom 1768 and is thus the oldest scientific library in Norway.

Student Life

Campus life

Over the next ten years, all NTNU’s academic communities in Trondheim will be gathered from dispersed locations to a single campus in the area around Gløshaugen. The Norwegian State will fund new buildings totalling 92 000 square metres and modernization of up to 45 000 square metres of existing areas at NTNU.

Sports facilities

All students at NTNU can join NTNUI, which is Norway's largest and most diverse sports association. One of the most popular activities for international students is hiking or skiing to an NTNUI koie, which is a network of small cabins spread across the county of Trøndelag.
