Kalmar and Växjö
Linnaeus University is located in two cities in the south-east part of Sweden - Kalmar and Växjö. Both cities are located in the region Småland, a county where the sea and nature always is nearby.
Kalmar - The student city by the sea
The city of Kalmar is located on the coast, something that Linnaeus University recently took advantage of by building new university buildings right by the harbour and gathered the University at one place. As the harbour is in the city centre of Kalmar, students can go about their daily business downtown and fill the city with the buzz of activities. Kalmar has roughly 65,000 inhabitants and a long history dating back to the Middle Ages - something that will not go unnoticed when having the old Kalmar Castle just a few hundred meters away from campus. The city has been voted as "Sweden's Summer town", perhaps thanks to the many days of sun, the beaches spotted out around town and the events and concerts.
Växjö - A living campus
Everything on campus in Växjö is within five minutes' walking distance - student accommodation, classrooms, the library, restaurants and pubs, lakes and leisure facilities. Campus is full of life and energy and is a natural meeting place for all students and interests. Växjö has about 90,000 inhabitants and has been declared as the Greenest city in Europe" because of the environmentally sound solutions implemented. The name Växjö is translated into "the city of lakes", which is something that doesn’t get unnoticed, having one of the many lakes just by campus. With the surrounding woods it becomes the perfect place for walking and jogging.
