- Why does NTNU have parking fees?
Everyone has to pay a parking fee to park on NTNU property. Parking control on the university's property is enforced by civil law. This means that NTNU decides the procedures for parking on the university's property. NTNU can add, remove and change parking spaces without approval from the police or Trondheim municipality.
Current parking arrangements at Gjøvik and Ålesund will not change until later.
- Employees and students: 5 kroner per hour (provided that the vehicle is registered).
- Visitors: 28 kroner per hour.
Employees and students can also park in zones for visitors’ parking, but will in these cases have to pay 28 kroner per hour. The same rates apply for parking at all campuses.

Even if your car is registered in the registration number database, you can get a ticket in the following instances:
- Using on-site parking in zones A or B at Gløshaugen without permission from HSE or the Human Resources Department.
- Using a visitors’ parking space in zones A and B at Gløshaugen without paying the full rate of 28 kr/h. In these spaces you have to pay the same rate as regular visitors.

Why does NTNU have parking fees? #
The new parking system at NTNU originates from NTNU's environmental ambition (in Norwegian) (pdf), which was passed at a Dean's meeting in 2012. The environmental ambition defines specific objectives within energy consumption, waste, procurement and transport.
General environmental objectives #
"NTNU shall be a leading university in utilising knowledge from its research in its own practice, to secure a environmentally sound activity throughout. This entails that we need to have full control over the environmental impact of our activity, and to make our employees, students and the outside world aware of this.
NTNU shall at all times have specific objectives for reducing environmental impact."
Subsidiary objectives for transport #
"NTNU shall arrange for employees and students to have access to environmentally friendly means of transport in their every day journey to and from the university campuses."
Measures to promote environmentally friendly transport solutions:
- Carpooling, company buss passes, electric bikes, etc. should take care of service transport
- Better conditions for cyclists, including more bike sheds and changing rooms
- Free parking for electric cars
