All employees and students who park their electric car at NTNU in Trondheim must register the car in the car number database in order to park for free at parking lots reserved for employees and students at NTNU. Visitors using a electric car must pay visitor parking charge. Employees and students who park at parking lots reserved for vistors must pay vistors rate. From 01.03.23, payment for charging electric cars has been introduced at NTNU in Trondheim.

Employees and students do not need to activate a ticket in the Apcoa Flow app, but the registration in the car number database will appear in the Apcoa Parking control tool. If you have not registered your electric car and have not paid a visit rate, you will be given at parking fine.

Parking your electric car

You can park for free at all places reserved for employees and students in NTNU's areas, except on the Gløshaugen plateau (Zone A and B) and at MC and HC places. Employees and student who park at parking lots reserved for vistors must pay vistors rate.
If you have an electric car wishing to park on the Gløshaugen plateau, you must use the zone "NTNU Besøkende" in the app and pay the visitor parking rate.

On-site parking with electric car on the Gløshaugen plateau

Employees and students who have been granted on-site parking at Gløshaugen (zones A and B) and at Kalvskinnet zone K must also register the car number in the car number database. This, plus a valid permit granted by the HR and HMS department, must be in place to allow you to park for free on Gløshaugen.
