Studenterhytta is located at Andbjørg Jamesons veg 3 in Bymarka, right by Gråkallen and Skistua.
There is a main road that leads straight to the cabin from Byåsen. This is suitable for driving, but be very careful during winter, as the roads tend to be icy, and there are some sharp turns. During summer you can also bike up this path, although this can be a bit challenging for some. If you bike at a slow and steady pace, you should be at the cabin after about 1 hour, two hours if you take lengthy breaks and enjoy the scenery. The road up is almost constant uphill at a 5-25 degree incline.
If it is winter, there are also many skiing paths starting from Byåsen butikksenter that you can use (there are a bit more busses going to there than all the way up to the cabin), and during summer they are great walking paths. Please remember to dress accordingly to the weather, and check the weather before you go. It is not a long trip, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared anyway.
Except for this, there are three main ways that students usually use to get up to the cabin: the arranged hyttebus, AtB’s bus route 10, and the tram combined with a 40min walk. These alternatives are described below.
Hyttebussen (Tuesdays and Wednesdays*)
*Only applies during normal opening days, does not apply under exam reading
Hyttebussen (lit. cabin bus) is a private bus from Steinan stud. vill. through Dragvoll, Moholt and Gløshaugen to Bymarka the forrest surrounding Studenterhytta. The bus will stop at all regular bus stops on the red line (mostly like #5). Wave to the driver and he will stop.
The hyttebuss is free for NTNUI-members, and costs NOK 40,- for trip-return for non-members. Note: The bus driver only accepts cash, not cards. The bus returning from Studenterhytta will leave Hytta at 22:00, and stop on request by the passengers. It will drive the same red route as explained below.

It is also possible to take the tram from Trondheim Sentrum to Bymarka (Lian) and walk to Studenterhytta. There is a gravel-road “straight” to the cabin where you also can go by bicycle. The board recommend this route and in weekends when it’s free to bring bicycle on bus and tram.
