How to get to the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study

For a map, please see here

By foot
It takes about twenty minutes to walk from the railway station to the Swedish Collegium.

Outside the railway station you walk to the traffic lights, cross Kungsgatan and continue straight ahead on
Bangårdsgatan until you reach the river Fyris and Östra Ågatan. You turn right and cross the first bridge
(Västgötaspången), and continue straight ahead on Slottsgränd until the street ends and you reach Nedre
. Now cross the street and walk uphill on a bike and pedestrian path to the right. At the top, you
cross Dag Hammarskjölds väg, turn left and almost immediately turn right onto a bike and pedestrian path
that leads through the park Engelska parken (you will then have Carolina Rediviva, the main library building,
to your right). With the park behind you, continue to walk along Thunbergsvägen until you reach the gate of the
Botanic Garden on your left. Walk straight ahead into the garden. The Collegium is located in the northern wing
of Linneanum, the large yellow eighteenth-century building in front of you, and in two adjacent Villas. The main
entrance is found in Linneanum, in the arch facing Thunbergsvägen.

By taxi or car
When arriving at SCAS by taxi, tell the taxi driver to enter the Botanic Garden at Villavägen 6. If you are driving,
please also enter at Villavägen 6. If you pay a parking fee, you can park nearby the Collegium. A special parking
permit, which can be requested at the SCAS reception, is required.

By public transport
Several bus routes pass by near the Collegium. Buses 2 and 7 run all day and well into the evening along Norby-
vägen; the closest bus stops are Slottsbacken, Evolutionsmuseet, and Botaniska.
