Campus and premises
Lund University's current campus plan was adopted in 2012 and is valid until 2025. The campus plan contributes to creating a common approach and provides the opportunity for the university, external actors, and stakeholders to act based on a common vision. The campus plan expresses the university's ambition to be one of the strong international universities in Europe and contains strategies for continued expansion and principles for new university buildings, for services, and for housing. It describes the university's physical development strategies, and also the qualities of life that exist outside the actual core business. Lund University has drawn up the campus plan in collaboration with, among others, the property owner Akademiska Hus and Lund Municipality.
A new campus plan is now being developed. The new plan has a planning horizon of 2050 and will cover all the locations where the university is located: Lund, Malmö, Helsingborg and Ljungbyhed. Work on the new campus plan started in 2022. In a first phase, thematic workshops have been conducted with all faculties. The new campus plan is expected to be ready for adoption in 2025.
The aim of the campus plan is, through long-term and future-oriented planning, to maintain and increase Lund University's competitiveness. The university must attract and stimulate the students of the future by offering sought-after and outstanding academic environments and attract employees through stimulating, characterful and efficient work and research environments. The physical environment must contribute to improved results and facilitate cooperation within the university and between the university and external partners.
