Lund University Information
Regarded as one of the best research universities in Sweden, Lund University (Lunds universitet) can trace its roots back to beyond the year 1666 when it was officially established. Indeed education has been taking place at the university level in Lund since 1425, but the university had to close for a hundred years or so due to Danish Reformation. The university is centred around the Lundagård park part of town, with further departments scattered around the town and further campuses at Malmö and Helsingborg.
