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.
