Aula Magna


Aula Magna - Stockholm University's conference centre

In Aula Magna, the great conference venue of Stockholm University, you can arrange everything from major events to small seminars, all under one roof, in our magnificent building.

Aula Magna is located in the heart of Stockholm University’s green campus at Frescati. It was inaugurated in 1997, and is one of architect Ralph Erskine’s most important works.

The building Aula Magna, with a name meaning "Great Auditorium", is designed to let the special Scandinavian light reflect off its light wooden surfaces, creating a bright and spacious atmosphere. The walls dissolve into generous glass vistas, revealing the centuries-old oaks that surround Aula Magna.
