Arrival checklist

    International master's students must pay the semester fee, even if they are not taking any courses.
    Students on exchange from NTNU partner institutions are exempt.

  3. Create your NTNU user account

    You can activate your NTNU user account the day after your semester fee is registered as paid. The account is used to access NTNU systems, such as Blackboard, library eduroam, and email.

    Download your digital student ID. You must have paid the semester fee and activated your NTNU user account to access the Student ID app. Please allow for up to 24 hours after activating your account.
