The campus is located in the South-Central part of Sweden, 180 km NW of Stockholm. Here, forestry education has been provided since 1945. Along with university training, SLU also conducts research and international projects in Skinnskatteberg.
Skinnskatteberg is situated between the northern coniferous forest region and the southern mixed forest region. This is an excellent starting point for showing forest production and environmental aspects under several geographical conditions.

- Education , with the BSc programme in Forest Management
- In-service training
- International co-operation
- Applied interdisciplinary research on Sustainable Forest Management
