During a brief meeting in the emergency preparedness group on Thursday afternoon, it was concluded that the extreme weather was less intense in Ålesund and Trondheim than there was reason to fear.

There are no reports of damage to people, objects or buildings at NTNU’s campuses after the extreme weather “Ingunn”.

At Sits building in Ålesund, some facade panels had come loose in the storm gusts, without causing any other damage. Apart from that, there are no reports of incidents affecting NTNU’s employees, students and buildings.

Back to normal

If nothing special happens regarding the weather situation, NTNU is therefore from today back to normal operations.

Campuses in Ålesund and Trondheim were closed for events between 7:00 p.m. Wednesday evening and 8:00 a.m. Thursday morning due to the extreme weather.


Classes in Ålesund were closed Wednesday

“The safety of our students and employees is paramount, and the weather forecast that has been issued means that we are monitoring the situation extra closely,” said Bjørn Haugstad, Director of Organization and Infrastructure at NTNU.
