Strinda is a former municipality in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The area encompassed the eastern part of the present-day municipality of Trondheim south and east of the main city center all the way southeast to the lake Jonsvatnet.[1]


The municipality of Strinda was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). According to the 1835 census, Strinda had a population of 4,593.[2] In 1891, the eastern parish of Malvik was separated from Strinda to form its own municipality, leaving Strinda with a population of 2,769.

Starting in 1864, a series of border adjustments moved territory from Strinda to Trondheim. On 1 January 1864, an area with 1,229 residents was transferred; then on 1 January 1893, an area with 4,097 residents was transferred; and finally on 1 January 1952, the Lade area with 2,230 inhabitants was transferred to Trondheim. On 1 January 1964 the rest of Strinda was incorporated into Trondheim, along with Leinstrand, Byneset, and Tiller. Prior to the merger, Strinda had a population of 44,600.[3]
