What is it like to live in Trondheim? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Expensive…seriously, it's expensive. However, lots of part-time work with high wages that can balance the high cost of living. Other than that, the city is beautiful, old and surrounded by breathtaking nature. The city is also the best city for students in all of Norway with famously good universities and communities.

What is the student lifestyle like in Trondheim?

Active, entertaining, serious, difficult to be a standout amongst your peers and lots of fun.

How much does it cost to live in Trondheim?

Too much! So, make sure to have either prepared savings or a part-time job in the city since the food here, beverages and even public transport are very expensive in comparison to the rest of Europe.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Trondheim? Is there any advice you can give?

Depends on your budget, but the best advice is always to be in contact with your chosen university and to hunt as early as you can for a place to stay.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

The food tends to be quite local or traditional, but Italian food and Asian food is very popular.

What places would you recommend visiting in Trondheim?

Visit these places when you have the time: Nidarosdomen, Munkholmen, The tower of Tyholt, Ladestien, Bakklandet and the fortress overlooking the city.

Is it good to eat out in Trondheim? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

It is not advisable for a student to eat out in the city because of the high prices, but if you like pizza, then there is a cheap and good option at the many Egon restaurants in the city where you can eat a buffet of pizzas where you pay once to eat as much pizza as you like.

Is the nightlife good in Trondheim? Where is good to go?

Nighttime in the city is considered safe to enjoy a good nightlife but never go alone as that increases risks.

What advice would you give future students heading to Trondheim?

Study hard, stay on budget and enjoy all the fun that comes with the student life in Trondheim.
