Campus development

The Faculty of Social Sciences' campus development project aims to maintain and develop an attractive and sustainable campus environment that supports our main tasks: education, research and collaboration.

The project in brief

The campus development project covers the faculty's work with premises and environments in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. Our focus is to continuously work to create value for research and teaching. This involves, for example, renovating and extending existing premises. It is also about creating attractive outdoor environments or promoting sustainable utilisation of our premises. 

Some ongoing and planned sub-projects 

  • Renovate Gamla Kirurgen, Gamla paviljongen, Gamla Polikliniken and Gamla Barnbördshuset (in different steps)
  • develop a centre for social sciences
  • develop the Campus Paradis park area
  • participate in art projects in the Paradis area
