Your student life

New students should come to the university for the Matriculation Ceremony on 16 August. Students who have previously been admitted should arrive as usual for the start of teaching. ​​​​​​

Arrival in Norway during the pandemic

At NTNU, we are working to make it possible for you to have a rewarding student life and keep your student environment in a somewhat unusual time.

The pandemic affects us in many ways – studies, jobs, friendships, love and everything else that has a place in life. If you need to talk to someone, contact Studentsamskipnaden (SiT) - the Student Association in Trondheim, Gjøvik and Ålesund.

Planning for 80 per cent in-person teaching in the autumn

New students should come to the university for the Matriculation Ceremony on 16 August. Students who have previously been admitted should arrive as usual for the start of teaching. ​​​​​​​

NTNU should be able to deliver about 80 per cent of teaching in person. This is an estimate and an average for all teaching. This does not mean that every course or study program should have 80 percent physical activity. Many large lectures will go digital. In other and smaller subjects, all teaching can be given physically.

In Trondheim, up to 200 students can attend lectures in summer. In Gjøvik and Ålesund, the maximum is 100 students. Also, it will be possible to gather groups of up to 50 students for teaching in all three cities, as long as there are effective measures in place for preventing infection.  

Employees are recommended to work from home as far as this is practical and suitable for the kind of work they are doing. Exceptions apply to the following groups
