About us

What makes Linköping University special is the lack of boundaries between different subjects and faculties, which has resulted in world-leading research environments and companies as well as a number of truly cross-disciplinary study programs.

Linköping University has three main campuses: Campus Valla, Campus Norrköping and Campus US. Campus Valla and Campus US are both located in Linköping whereas Campus Norrköping is centrally located in the city of Norrköping, 40 km north of Linköping. The largest campus is Campus Valla.

Our region is the fourth largest county in Sweden and has about 450,000 inhabitants. The region offers not only famous tourist attractions, such as Kolmården Zoo, Göta canal and Astrid Lindgren’s World – but is also one of Sweden’s most interesting counties from a historical point of view.
