Campus Paradis building project
The Faculty of Social Sciences’ activities in Lund are primarily gathered in the Paradis area, which constitutes the southern section of the so-called Science Trail. Since 2012, a building project has been underway to meet the faculty’s premises needs through several renovations and new buildings in the area. On this page, you will find general information on the project and it's current status.
The project in brief
Through the Campus Paradis building project, the Faculty of Social Sciences wants to create fit-for-purpose premises for the departments in Lund, to build a centre for social sciences in the area as well as to make the faculty visible in Lund’s urban environment. In the long term, it involves enhancing both the faculty’s own area and the Science Trail in Lund.
The building project is carried out in three stages, of which two have already been completed. The remaining third stage consists of:
- renovating Gamla lungkliniken (building G)
- where necessary, renovating Gamla Kirurgen (building R), Paviljongen (building P) and Gamla Barnsjukhuset (building J)
- renovating Gamla Polikliniken (buildning M) and Gamla Barnbördshuset (building O)
- building a centre for social sciences, including a library
- developing the Campus Paradis park area.
A new centre for social sciences
The new centre for social sciences is intended to function as an arena and meeting place for administrators, students and teaching staff. The aim is to create a study centre for the whole faculty with a library, café, lecture theatres, and study areas. It will also house a space for social science debates and presentations as well as exhibition areas.
The plan is for the new building to be joined to the existing buildings M and O.
