A unified campus

Over the next ten years, NTNU's academic communities in Trondheim will be unified in one urban campus in the area around Gløshaugen.

Statsbygg is responsible for building and re-build 129 100 square meters of university buildings. 

Involvement and regulation



This is how we involve

To develop a campus for the benefit of NTNU, we need knowledge from our end users and stakeholders.



Where and how it can be built

In the regulation, the municipality clarifies the physical framework for where and how it can be built, in order to bring NTNU's campus together.
