The student cabins
Students in Trondheim have access to something few universities can match: a network of small cabins spread across the county of Trøndelag, and the larger Student Cabin (Studenterhytta), which is located right outside the city centre.
Hiking or skiing to one of the smaller cabins is a very popular weekend activity. Just remember to bring a map, a sleeping bag and food. If you prefer a little more pampering, the Student Cabin has a sauna, serves cheap meals and there is a bus going from campus.
Hiking and skiing
Trondheim's charms extend well beyond its city centre. Just a short bus or tram ride away lies Bymarka. The public park offers an extensive network of paths and trails perfect for hiking and cross-country skiing.
The equipment you can borrow includes skis, tents, fishing gear and ice skates!
Sit offers training facilities, housing in student villages, cafés and canteens, health care, child care and a multitude of courses.
NTNU's international students organize everything from trips around Norway to family activities and movie nights. The university also has many other student organizations, where you can meet people who are interested in everything from Amnesty International to Nordic skiing.
Every other year, student volunteers organize two popular festivals: UKA and ISFiT.
ISFIT is organized around a student-selected theme that addresses issues of global significance through workshops, debates and dialogue groups. Keynote speakers have included Nobel laureates and world leaders.
Norway's largest cultural festival features music, theatre, art and stage shows. It is entirely organized by student volunteers.
