About Aula Magna

Aula Magna is Stockholm University’s large meeting facility. Completed in 1997, the building is one of architect Ralph Erskine’s premier accomplishments. It’s light and airy, fitted with light wood and generous walls of windows that overlook stately oaks.

Here you can read more about the building and the art in Aula Magna. The video below showcases Aula Magna’s beautiful setting and includes a short introduction to the building. (At present only in Swedish.)



The Auditorium

The Auditorium is our largest meeting facility with room for up to 1200 people. It is one of the largest of its kind in Stockholm. It can be divided into two sections with a partition wall and will then accommodate up to 637 and 557 persons, respectively.

The Auditorium is shaped like an amphitheatre with acoustics and advanced technology custom designed for conferences, presentations and lectures.

Seminar rooms

There are five seminar rooms in Aula Magna where you can organize smaller meetings, either in connection with an event in one of our larger premises or completely independent. All seminar rooms are equipped with computer projector, hearing loop, whiteboard and flipchart. Click on the premises name to read more.
