SLU in Uppsala is located on the Ultuna campus in the southern part of the city. Here, you'll find the university administration, two of the four faculties, a significant portion of the support staff, and a large number of students.

The Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences, as well as the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, have the majority of their operations based in Ultuna. SLU's other two faculties have most of their activities in Alnarp north of Malmö and in Umeå. Skara is also a significant SLU location.

To the east of Uppsala, you'll find Lövsta Swedish Livestock Research Centre, Europe's most modern facility for teaching and research on farm animals (dairy cattle, pigs and poultry). The Lövsta Field Research Station is also located here, where SLU conducts research on soil and crops. You can see pictures from the inauguration in 2018 here.

At Ultuna, you'll find Sweden's only university animal hospital (UDS), where practical animal healthcare is combined with research and education. Veterinary students and veterinary nursing students have parts of their education based at UDS and also at Lövsta.

You can view a map of Ultuna here with car parks (P) (Google maps).

The Knowledge Park

SLU educates landscape architects both at Ultuna and in Alnarp. The Knowledge Park is a demonstration facility for teaching and research. It is also a place for recreation and inspiration that is always open to everyone. You can read more about the Knowledge Park here.
