Wireless Access

On campus

Visitors can use either of the university’s wireless networks, eduroam (see below) or ntnuguest. eduroam assumes that your organization is in some way associated with the eduroam system, and that you have set up your computer according to the instructions from your local IT support. The NTNU guest network allows web traffic, but nothing else.

In the city centre

Most parts of the city centre are covered by “Trådløse Trondheim” (Wireless Trondheim). Users with access to eduroam (see below) may use their net free of charge. Others may access the network at a charge.


Most European universities are members of eduroam, but many have not informed their faculty. If you do not know if your university is a member you should check with your local IT-department. If your institution is a member you should set up your laptop / palmtop / cellphone for eduroam before leaving for COMPEL. You will then get automatic access to the wireless network at NTNU.

Many North American and Asia/Pacific universities and organisations are also members of eduroam and the number is growing fast.

Information provided by the IT department at NTNU on setting up your wireless card for eduroam. This is only applicable if your institution is a member. Change username@ntnu.no” with “[email protected]_institution”. This is a “username”@”affiliation”, not an e-mail.
