Student in Trondheim

Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway, and well known for it`s student life. Together with your fellow students at QMUC there are many things you can do to make your stay in Trondheim memorable.
QMUC students have a photography group, a football team, a hiking group and a choir. If you don`t find a group that covers your interests you can create your own group.
Nature is never far away. You could get on the tram from St. Olav Street to Lian and Bymarka or get on bus number 5 or 9 to Estenstadmarka.
In Trondheim there are also several green areas closer to the city like Marinen next to Nidaros Cathedral, Munkholmen and Festningen. Other than that you could find good places to take a swim outside like Korsvika, Hestsjøen, Ringvebukta, Lianvannet, Munkholmen, Kyvannet and Rotvoll. Jogging or hiking on Ladestien or Nidelvstien is also a good alternative.

Sit idrett is an inexpensive and good sport alternative for students. Here you can use the gym facilities or go to one of the many aerobic classes, the climbing wall, squash courts or try one of the yoga classes. 
An other alternative is HISSI (Norwegian pages only), a sports organisation that offers several organized activities like courses and team sports.

Trondheim has a lot to offer in the entertainment business. We will mention Trondheim Kino, Trøndelag Teater, Filmklubben og Cinemateket, Teaterhuset Avant Garden, Trondheim Jazzforum, and Lerkendal Stadion where the local football team Rosenborg plays their matches.
There are often concerts at places like Samfundet, Blæst, Skydsstasjonen, Byscenen, Trondheim Spektrum, Lerkendal and Olavshallen.
Studentersamfundet”, or Samfundet for short, is a big, red building in Elgesetergate just by the Elgeseter bridge, where nearly 1.200 students in Trondheim work on a voluntary basis to keep the place constantly packed with great offers and events.

The University Chaplains of Trondheim
If you need someone to talk to you can contact one of the Student Priests. They are ordained ministers of the Lutheran Church of Norway, but they welcome all students, no matter faith, to counseling or to take part in the events that they offer together with the Student Congregation. 

They also offer different social events for Norwegian and international students.
