Uppsala BioCentre is ready for its first inhabitants.

SLU Uppsala

SLU´s main campus is Ultuna, six kilometres south of Uppsala. Campus Ultuna is where you find the Vice-Chancellor´s office and most of the administration. The faculties of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences, and of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science are also located at Campus Ultuna.

The university also has activities at BMC (Uppsala Biomedical Centre), the Kungsängen farm, the Lövsta Research Farm and the Krusenberg estate.

Ultuna has Sweden´s only University Animal Hospital. The campus is also the home of a number of interesting collaborative centres, such as ArtDatabanken (Swedish Threatened Species Unit), CBM (Swedish Biodiversity Centre) and CMK (the Swedish EIA centre).

Campus under construction

For some time, Ultuna has been a huge construction site. The research clusters BioCentrum and Mark-Vatten-Miljöcentrum (Soil-Water-Environment) are almost completed, and departments and units are moving in. And the construction of a new Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science Centre, including a new Animal Hospital, has begun.
