The bus between the city centre and the UiT campus leaves from outside the Radisson Blu hotel. If you are staying at any of the other hotels downtown, you need to make your way to the Radisson Blu.
The University of Tromsø is part of the Eduroam service http://www.eduroam.org, so anyone coming from another Eduroam institution should be able to log on to the Eduroam Wi-Fi network using their regular username and password.
For those of you who are not linked up to the Eduroam system, an alternative Wi-Fi network – uit-conference – will be available. Password will be provided at the start of the meeting.
Transportation from/to the airport
The airport in Tromsø is located only about 10 minutes by car from the city centre, so a taxi shouldn’t set you back too much (even though Norway is an expensive country).
Alternatively, you can take the Airport Express Bus (Flybussen) to your hotel.
