About Lund

Lund is an old university town in the very south of Sweden. This page contains information on how to find us and on accommodation. General information about Lund is supplied by the tourist office.

How To Get Here

The Centre for Mathematical Sciences is a department of Lund University, in southern Sweden, Skåne (Scania), close to Denmark. The Centre is located in the building for mathematical sciences (or Mathematicum, marked with an F) at Lunds tekniska högskola / Lunds universitet (Lund Institute of Technology / Lund University), 1-2 km northeast of the center of Lund, at the intersection of Tornavägen and Sölvegatan, see the University campus map (200 kB pdf), and the map of the LTH campus, where the building is marked "MH".

We have gathered som information about how to travel by air, by train, and within Lund.
