Wireless network for PCs installed by the IT-division #
PCs with Windows, installed by NTNU's IT-division, uses the wireless network NTNU-MA within NTNU's campuses. NTNU-MA connects automatically and is the preferred network when it's available (NTNU-MA is not used in Gjøvik, nor in Ålesund). Where NTNU-MA is unavailable, Eduroam is the preferred wireless network.
Wireless network for other equipment #
Eduroam is the wireless network for all other equipment in NTNU's campuses. Macs, machines with Linux, phones, tablets and private machines should all use Eduroam. PCs with Windows, without access to NTNU-MA, will also use Eduroam.
Wireless network for visitors #
Visitors can use either of the university's wireless networks, Eduroam or ntnuguest. The network ntnuguest allows web traffic, but nothing else. 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.
How do I connect to Eduroam? #
The button below leads to a webpage that lets you automatically connect to Eduroam. Make sure you have internet access via cable, 4G or the guest network ntnuguest first.
NTNU username and password is required the first time you connect. Your username must be given in the format "firstname.lastname@example.org".
What is Eduroam? #

The only thing you have to do is to connect to eduroam at NTNU.
