In August 2009, Svensson moved to Rosenborg. His debut came on 10 March 2011 in Rosenborg's 4–4 draw against Lillestrøm. He then made his first league start against Haugesund, replacing the injured Michael Jamtfall. He signed a professional contract with Rosenborg in June 2011 until the end of the 2013 season.
In Rosenborg's 4–0 win over Sarpsborg 08 on 3 June 2011, Svensson scored two goals. On 13 July 2011, he made his European debut against Icelandic side Breiðablik in the Champions League Second qualifying round.
During the 2014 season, with Cristian Gamboa struggling with injury and later attending the World Cup, Svensson stepped in as a right-back for Rosenborg, and he did so with success. After Gamboa's move to West Bromwich after an impressive world cup with Costa Rica, he continued to play right-back throughout the rest of the season. After the season, he made the decision to switch from midfield to right-back permanently.
On 20 April 2016, Svensson reached 200 games for Rosenborg at the age of 23 years and 45 days, making him the youngest player for the club to do so and beating Per Ciljan Skjelbred's record by 14 days.
