SLU’s Alnarp campus is situated in a large park by the sea, west of Lund, north of Malmö and east of Copenhagen. This prime location makes Alnarp a gateway to the rest of Europe. Here, students can take part in the many academic, social and sporting activities, relax in the countryside and enjoy the metropolitan nightlife.

Surrounded by a 40-hectare park with lush green lawns and winding pathways, Alnarp campus is remarkably picturesque.  It boasts the largest arboretum in Sweden, with 2 600 varieties of trees and shrubs.  The Assortment Garden provides a wealth of inspiration and ideas for gardeners, containing 800 annuals, 450 perennials, and a large assortment of herbs, dahlias and ornamental grass.  The campus grounds also accommodate a landscape laboratory, gardening laboratory, rehabilitation garden and exciting architecture.

The Alnarp National Library specialises in horticulture and landscape planning, containing over 90 000 publications in these fields.  Library resources are available in both printed and electronic format.

Teaching and research activities in Alnarp include landscape planning, horticulture, nemo-borreal forestry and agriculture.  SLU’s Anarps campus currently has 400 staff members and 900 students enrolled.  Programmes include horticulture, landscape architecture, landscape contracting, market gardening, farm management and agricultural engineering.

There are two student unions on Alnarp campus: LMK, primarily for agriculture students, and ASK, open to all students.  The unions make a valuable contribution to campus social life, and protect the rights and privileges of the student population.

Student union Alnarp

Like all students in Sweden, those at SLU have the opportunity to become a member of a student union. 

The student unions are organisations created and driven by students, for students.  One of the most important responsibilities of the union is to oversee the quality of SLU's programmes and courses and to campaign for the rights and privileges of the student body. Becoming a member of the student union is a very effective way to influence the actions and decisions that affect you as a student.

The student union also plays a very important social roll on campus.  Students can go to the union building when they want to party, meet for coffee, study with friends or simply socialise.  As a new student, becoming a member of the student union is a great way to meet new people.  SLU's student union has a wide variety of groups and committees, with something to interest almost everyone.  You can play sports and games, sing in a choir, act in a play, help to organise parties and events, take a dance class, get your hunting licence, and much more.  

If you have any questions about becoming a member, please contact the student union registrar's office on your campus:
