When choosing the “ticketless” option when acquiring a ticket, the membership card itself may be utilised as a ticket.

When you have paid, you will receive a confirmation mail which will contain your purchased tickets. You will then have to print out the ticket(s) and bring them along to the event.

About UKA

UKA and the UKA-feeling



UKA is a traditional, yet innovative, cultural festival. A phenomenon to many, it serves as a holiday in the middle of the fall term. Every other year fireworks light up the sky above Studentersamfundet, Trondheim's Student Society, and everyone is encouraed to enjoy the hard work of 1700 volunteering students.

The student festival started off as a revue theatre with the opening show "Baccarat" in 1917 in order to bolster Studentersamfundet’s economy. The play was set up for a full week, hence the name of the festival (“uka” = “the week”). It has since become a place of sanctuary, and also a workplace for now thousands of Trondheim’s students. The modern day UKA lasts for 25 days, and sold more than 80 000 tickets in 2011, deeming it the largest cultural festival in Norway.

A lot of Trondheim’s residents have some sort of connection to UKA, either through volunteering or as spectators. UKA aims to spread the student spirit to its visitors, and prominently marks the entire city throughout the weeks of October. The festival arranges everything from concerts with international artists such as Jay-Z, Franz Ferdinand, Snoop Dogg, Muse and David Guetta, to sophisticated sushi and wine tasting classes. In addition, the revue theatre is still carrying on strong with its proud traditions and is considered as one of the main events of UKA.

By attending UKA you become part of a grand community, where everyone is trying their best to achieve the legendary UKA-feeling (UKEfølelsen). Word has it that happiness is meeting your better half at UKA.

With utmost sincerity, we henceforth invite you to the 49th UKA festival! Join us from October 5th to 29th, 2017.
