Student? See Student card

As an NTNU employee, you are entitled to an ID card with your name and picture. The card serves as your:

  • key card to allow you access to specific NTNU buildings
  • library card
  • printer access card (for some employees)
  • ID card

Please wear your employee card, and keep it visible if you are on campus after opening hours. If requested by NTNU's duty officers, you are obliged to show them your employee card. The access card is personal and it is not allowed to lend or otherwise transfer it to others.

New Employee Card

Step 1: Take photo and choose PIN

Use NTNU's online photo automat to take a new photo with your mobile phone or computer. You can also upload a passport photo you already have.

Log in with your NTNU username and password. After you take or upload your photo, you will be prompted to choose a PIN code, and select the place where you will collect the completed card.   

Step 2: Collect your card

You can collect your card the same day, as long as your boss has approved the access request in the standard access request system (TBS). Bring a valid ID to retrieve your employee access card from the Security services office in Trondheim (Vakt og service), or the relevant service centre in Gjøvik or Ålesund. Pick up your card here:
