Travel to Lund University

1. How do I find Lund University and the Conference Venue?
Lund University is based in the city of Lund, close to Malmö (Sweden’s third largest city) in the south of Sweden. This part of Sweden is very close to Copenhagen in Denmark. The main campus buildings of Lund University are located in the centre of Lund and are an approximate 5–10 minutes' walk from the Lund railway station.

Copenhagen Airport – the closest international airport to Lund
The closest international airport to Lund is Copenhagen Airport (also known as "Kastrup"), in Denmark. The journey time by train from the airport to Lund is about 35 minutes. The journey takes you over the Öresund Bridge connecting Denmark to Sweden and via Malmö central station where you may need to change trains.

Train tickets can be purchased from the Skånetrafiken ticket machines in the arrivals hall at Copenhagen Airport, near the escalators going down to the train platform. You can pay using a debit/credit card, and if you buy a ticket all the way to Lund, the ticket will be valid even if you need to change trains at Malmö central station. You can also use the Danish DSB ticket machines when travelling with Skånetrafiken. A DSB ticket will be slightly more expensive, however.

Please note that there is a passport control at the first stop (Hyllie) on the Swedish side. Make sure to always bring a valid passport or ID-card when travelling between Denmark and Sweden.

Information on Copenhagen airport

Information on train travel from Copenhagen to Lund (Skånetrafiken's website)
