Find your way on campus
Stockholm University's main campus is in the Frescati area, north of the city centre.
While most of our departments and offices are located here, there are also a number of smaller campus areas in other parts of the city.
Studenthuset and Infocenter
In Studenthuset at Frescati you will find a wide range of student services and support. This house has been designed especially for our students and it serves as a meeting place on campus.
"Andrum" – a room for everyone
Need to take a pause? 'Andrum', which means 'breathing space' in Swedish, is the name of a room for contemplation, open to all at Stockholm University irrespective of religion or creed.
The central motif for the room is light and is the creation of designers Fredrika Linder and Catarina von Matérn. "The wall of light is intended to create a feeling of looking out of a window – a view or an opening towards the unknown. The bubbles I see as thought bubbles that symbolise the movement of free reflection, swirling towards the unknown", says Fredrika Linder who created the wall of light.
Catarina von Matérn designed the room's benches and the large red mat. Her intention is to use the circle, a symbol of eternity, and the intense red colour to reflect the power of religion and of love.
