The Department of Mathematics has moved, during the summer 2022, to new premises in house 1 in Albano. Albano is in the National City Park between the commuter railway Roslagsbanan and the road Roslagsvägen, just north of Roslagstull. Below you can see how to get to us and how to find your way around.
During the summer 2022, the department has moved to house 1 in the the new campus Albano. Most of our new offices are on floor 3, and some are on floor 2. You need an access card to enter the office spaces. On floor 3 you can also find our seminar room (the Cramér room), the mathematical library and our student office and study advisors.

Find your way around
Most of our offices are on floor 3, and some on floor 2, of house 1 in Albano. Only employees have access to the office area, so if you want to visit someone in particular you will need to book a meeting and be let in.
The student office and study advisors have drop-in times some days of the week, on floor 3 of house 1 (the door is close to the lifts and the stairs). Details about this can be found on the page with contact details for questions regarding education.
On floor 3 you can also find our seminar room (the Cramér room) and the mathematical library (see below). Here, too, visitors need to be let in, though the door to the seminar room may be unlocked during seminars.
