Student Housing at Persaunet

Persaunet Student Housing (PSH) is an old nursing home within walking distance from campus Gløshaugen and Tyholt (NTNU). Approximately 160 exchange students from Europe, staying for the fall semester, will be living at PSH. (PSH will not be open during the spring semester). The students given such an offer will be contacted by e-mail in June/July.

During the first few weeks of the semester, there will be a reception at PSH where you can pick up your key. For this period the reception will be open 24 hours a day, so you can just show up at PSH whenever arriving.


There is a bus stop close to the complex with a direct route to campus Dragvoll and the city center. Visit AtB's website to read more about the bus routes in Trondheim.

The adress is Persaunvegen 54, 7046 Trondheim. View map.

As a resident at PSH, you will share a bedroom with 1-3 students, depending on the size of the rooms. Each floor will have its own resident representative. These will have a single room to compensate for the responsibility and workload. All rooms will be furnished with beds, closets and small desks. There is also a sink in almost every room. The rooms have been equipped to suit the demands for student housing.

You will have access to common areas such as study rooms, living rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. The kitchens will be equipped with the necessary articles and equipment for preparing basic meals, but if you have special wishes for more advanced equipment, you should bring or buy this yourself. You will also have access to a laundry at Moholt Student Village.

There will be a wireless internet connection at PSH. This will be free of charge. Due to solid concrete walls there might not be a signal everywhere in the building, but it will at least be accessible in the living- and study rooms.

If you arrive in Trondheim before PSH opens, you will have to find another place to live in the meantime, for example at a hotel.

"Roof over your head" will use a part of the PSH building for their purposes in the first period of the semester. They will have their own bathrooms and common areas and will be separated from your residences, but you should prepare for a busy time at PSH in this period!

There is a grocery store (ICA) about 700 meters from PSH. This grocery store also hosts a post office, and you will be able to withdraw cash when buying something with a VISA-card.

When staying at PSH you will be required to follow certain rules regarding cleaning, noise level and so on. These rules will be communicated to the residents when moving in.
