    How to rent a koie (small cabin)
    • The cabins can be booked and payed for at Akademika's bookshops at Dragvoll and Gløshaugen.
    • The new booking period starts every Wednesday morning at 08.00 at Akademika Gløshaugen and 09.00 at Akademika Dragvoll. The booking period lasts from Friday to next Thursday. As most cabins are usually booked fast, it is recommended to do your reservation from Akademika Gløshaugen.
    • You have to pay when the booking takes place. A booking charge of 10kr will be added in addition pr. booking. There are no opportunities to get a refund, in case of not reaching the cabin or other reasons.
    • Every member of NTNUI can bring any number of non-members with them. The prices are at most 50kr per night for members and 100kr per night for non-members.
    • NB! We ask the cabin users to be honest when reserving a cabin. Inform about the number of members and non-members! The cabin network is operated by volunteers and we are dependent on the rental fees to be able to maintain this offer.

    • The person booking the cabin must show a proof of NTNUI membership at the website medlem.ntnui.no . The number of people attending the trip have to be given.
    • Remember to keep the receipts. Bring these with you when collecting the keys at Akademika Gløshaugen. Here you will also get the things that have been repaired or reported missing and a form to note new things.
    • After your return it is very important that you as soon as possible go to Akademika Gløshaugen and deliver back the key and the cabin report.
    • NB! The only way to get keys for a cabin is by making a reservation at Akademika Dragvoll or Akademika Gløshaugen. Check the opening hours in advance! Remember to catch the key at Akademika Gløshaugen, information is given on the receipt. The cabin group can't help you when you're too late!
