Campus Valla

Oldest, largest and with bicycles everywhere.

Campus Valla is located about three kilometres from Linköping town centre. It is surrounded by a popular recreation area, a golf course, the innovative new district Vallastaden and Science Park Mjärdevi, home to many of the university's spin-off companies. Nearby is also the town’s largest area of student housing: Ryd.

Valla is the oldest and largest of the university’s campuses with students from many programmes and research within a large number of fields. On campus there are several cafés, restaurants and shops.
