Campus and premises
Lund University’s campus plan was completed in 2012. The campus plan is a planning instrument for the next 15-year period, perhaps even longer. It contributes to creating a common approach and gets various intra-University parties and outside agents and stakeholders to work on the basis of a shared vision.
The campus plan contains strategies for continued expansion with plans for new University buildings, services and housing.
The purpose of the campus plan is, through long term and future-oriented planning, to preserve and increase Lund University’s competitiveness. The University is to attract and stimulate future students by offering attractive and excellent academic environments. The University is to attract employees through work and research environments that are stimulating, efficient and full of character. The physical environment is to contribute to improved results and to facilitate collaboration within the University and between the University and external cooperation partners.
The campus plan expresses Lund University’s ambition to be one of the strong international universities in Europe. It describes the University’s physical development strategies, but also the quality of life which exists outside the actual core activities of the University.
Lund University has produced the campus plan in cooperation with property owner Akademiska Hus and the City of Lund.
Premises plan 2014-2016
The premises plan for 2014–2016 covers both the development of premises so far and the premises needs which are in the process of being met or investigated. The premises plan is a description of the status and impact of the tasks that each faculty or organisation has assigned to LU Estates.
Projects taken up in the premises plan are placed in one of three categories:
- Projects which have been decided, i.e. there is a decision on implementation (the entire cost has been financed)
- Projects which have been initiated, i.e. there is a decision on investigation (the cost of the investigation and/or the projection costs have been financed)
- Projects which are under investigation in the ‟pipeline” (no decisions on financing have been taken)
Within categories 2 and 3 in particular, changes will take place rapidly over time. For several of these projects, there are no rental estimates. Preliminary rent levels are provided anyway in several cases. They are based on previous experiences from similar projects. Likewise, the timetables for these categories are not definite and should be seen as the shortest possible duration predicted for these projects.
The work to produce a premises plan 2017-2019 is ongoing. (The plan will be complemented with a premises provision plan which is updated annually.)
