(Map showing the venue in relation to the city center, or “Midtbyen”)

For the conference you have to make reservations for accommodation on your own, either at one of the many hotels/hostels or through private accommodation. 

Private accommodation
There are several possibilities available through one of the major private accommodation providers (AirBnB or similar). We would recommend choosing a location close (< 2.0 kilometer) to the city center. If you decide on a location further than walking distance from the venue be sure to check the nearest bus stop, routes and time table at www.atb.no/en  
(Closest bus stop to the conference is “Solsiden”)

Hotel/hostels
Most of the hotels and hostels in Trondheim are situated in or near the city center and varies in both standard and pricing, but the standard is overall at a high level. Be aware that there are a couple of hotels situated a bit outside of the city (more than 3.0 km), so be sure to check this when you make your reservation. If you consider a venue outside of the city or far from the conference check www.atb.no/en for the nearest bus stop, routes and time tables (Closest bus stop to the conference is “Solsiden”)
