Rotvoll is an area of Trondheim, Norway located between Leangen to the west and Ranheim to the east. The area has some suburban housing and is otherwise dominated by the Statoil research facility and Sør-Trøndelag University College campus for teacher training and Norwegian Sign Language interpreters. Rotvoll is served by city buses and by Rotvoll Station on Trønderbanen, the commuter train in Trøndelag.
Rotvoll Waldorf School, The Ecological House and Kristoffertunet
Next to the fiord are several conjoint Anthroposophical projects:
- Kristoffertunet, a Camphill 3 house mixed community with 25 people, some of whom with special needs.
- Rotvoll Waldorf School
- Biodynamic agriculture, ecological bakery and other activities associated with the above
The area is known for its rich bird life and has several times been proposed for protection. When the Statoil facility was built there in the 1991, it resulted in civil disobedience at the climax of the Rotvoll controversy.
