n order to create more workspace for students and employees within Campus Gamla Torget, a large construction/relocation project has been ongoing for several years. Within one year, an estimated 950 study places will be available within Campus Gamla Torget.
As the number of students and employees has increased over the years, the goal is to create more study places, group rooms and lounge areas for students. New teaching facilities are being built in “Badhuset”, including a new lecture hall. In order to create more space, the Dag Hammarskjöld and Law Library has moved to Slottsgränd 3, near Carolina Rediviva.
The ongoing construction work has resulted in a temporary shortage of teaching facilities and study places. The ongoing renovation of the University Main Building has also contributed to this. We are sorry for the inconvenience this is causing. However, the work is progressing and already in April Campus Gamla Torget will gain access to two floors in “gamla Skrapan” at Trädgårdsgatan 7E. In addition, starting autumn 2016, the whole building will be available for teachers and students. When the renovations are completed, which is expected to be during early 2017, the number of study places and other facilities will have doubled.
Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience these renovations are causing, but we appreciate the students’ patience, and look forward to new teaching facilities and study places that will be available at Campus Gamla Torget in the beginning of 2017.
