Lund Campus – City of Lund

Lund University's main campus is located in the City of Lund, which is 15 minutes by train from Malmö (Sweden's third-largest city) and less than an hour from Copenhagen (the capital of Denmark and Scandinavia's largest city).

The city is known for its vibrant student life and academic traditions, its charming and historic city centre, and for being part of an innovative and entrepreneurial region.

The Main University Building (Universitetshuset)

Universitetshuset is Lund University’s main building, designed by Helgo Zettervall. The building was opened in 1882 and houses the grand University assembly hall, where professorial inaugurations and other ceremonies take place. Universitetshuset also houses the offices of the Vice-Chancellor and some of the University administration. The University fountain is at times a popular bathing spot for students.

In the early 19th century, the high walls that screened off the University from its surroundings were torn down and Lundagård was opened up as a public park.

The King’s House (Kungshuset)

Kungshuset was completed in 1584 and was originally the residence of the Danish king’s sheriff. At the end of the 17th century Kungshuset became Lund University’s main building and fulfilled this function for 200 years. It also housed the University Library. At one point there was an astronomical observatory in the tower and an anatomical theatre. Kungshuset is located in Lundagård – the park area between the Lund Cathedral and the Main University Building.
