Travel information


There is an Accessibility entrance on floor 2 in all the buildings A–F, facing the Auto Park (Swedish name: Södra parkeringen), elevators, several stairs and stairwells in the building leading to the department. Please see below.

Transport services and taxis can drive up to the entrances:

  • A road leads up to the entrances on floor 2, building A–F from the Auto Park near building F, for short stops. Our address: Universitetsvägen 10 D.
  • A road leads up to a dead end zone near building A and the entrance on floor 3. A bit downhill, there is the entrance on floor 2 (and the other buildings B–F). Address: Universitetsvägen 10 A.
  • On floor 3 (indoors) there is a long corridor connecting building A–F.

The department is located in building D on floor 3–6.


There are elevators that run between floor 2 and 9 in each building A–F. In our building D:

  • Floor 5–6: When the department is locked, you need a key card with a code to get access to the floors from the elevators.
  • Floor 3–4 (and 2): You can always get out from the elevators without a key card and code. The department's entrances on floor 3–4 are located next to the elevators, and key card and code are required when the department is locked.

Opening hours, see heading above.

There are elevators as well in the Student House (Studenthuset), near building A. With a walker, wheelchair, permobil, pram, stroller etc., the easiest way from the Auto Park might be to go into the Student House and take the indoor elevator up one floor, and go outdoors to building A–F. From there you can go outdoors straight to building D, or to one of the other buildings and go indoors from floor 2 via a corridor to building D. It is possible to take the road up from the parking lot near building F, but it is a fairly long hill.

Indoor stairs

There are two stairwells in building D, which are fairly anonymous behind white doors or glass doors:

  • The Northern stairwell (close to Södra huset and the University Library) goes from floor 3 and upwards. The doors to the department are locked in the evenings and on weekends, and a key card with code is then required to enter the floor. On floor 2 at the end of the corridor, there are stairs (with orange stair railing) leading up to floor 5.
  • The Southern stairwell (near the car park "Södra parkeringen") runs from floor 2 (ground floor) and upwards. We always keep these doors locked and key card with code is required to enter (we do not open "when you knock").

Outdoor stairs from the Auto Park "Södra parkeringen"

There are stairs between the Auto Park "Södra parkeringen" and the entrances on floor 2 in building A–F:

  • Stairs with a pram ramp (which is quite steep) are located near building B, floor 2. There are elevators in the building, just follow the corridor on floor 2.
  • In between all the buildings A–F, outdoors, there are stairs leading up to glass entrance doors on floor 3.

Accessibility entrances to building D are available on:

  • Floor 2, South of Södra husets at the Auto Park "Södra parkeringen", Universitetsvägen 10 D.
  • Floor 4, North of Södra huset by the revolving doors at the entrance to Building DEF, Universitetsvägen 14 D.

Floor 2

There are accessibility entrances on floor 2 in every building A–F in Södra huset, on the parking lot side. It is possible to drive all the way to the entrances via the road close to building F. Door buttons for automatic opening are available. Follow the corridor to the elevators (see heading Elevators and stairs, above).

Floor 4

On the North side of Södra huset, i.e. not on the parking lot side, there is an accessibility entrance on floor 4 by the revolving doors leading to building DEF. To get to the elevators:

  • Inside the entrance hall, pass by the long staircase on the right (which leads to above the entrance hall to the University Library).
  • To the right after the stairs there are glass doors. Pass through them (door buttons for automatic opening are available) and past the stairs with orange stair railing. The elevators are in the corridor straight ahead.
  • If you are going to visit a doctoral student located above the Universe Library, take either the long stairs in the entrance hall, or the elevator inside the Library entrance. The Library is to the left of the café.

Also read above, about stairs leading up to the buildings from the parking lot, under the heading Elevators and stairs.
