Matriculation ceremony 2020

The Matriculation ceremony is NTNU's offcial welcome and the start of the academic year for all new students.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming our new students to study start!

The ceremony starts at 11:00

Enjoy lots of entertainment, films from the campuses, presentation of student organizations, and meet the rector.

Due to the Coronavirus, this year's matriculation ceremony will have to be enjoyed via a live stream. It will also be recorded, so you may watch the ceremony again later.

Most faculties organize online activities after the ceremony. Check your study programme for more information during the summer.
