About the LTV faculty
The Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science (LTV faculty) is mainly located in Alnarp, in the centre of Sweden’s most dynamic agricultural, horticultural and food producing region, within a stone’s throw from the ocean.
Campus Alnarp is close to the student towns of Malmö and Lund, and to the metropolitan life in Copenhagen.
But the faculty also has part of its education and research in landscape architecture at SLU in Uppsala.
There is a broad network of contacts thanks to extensive collaboration projects with industry, authorities and organisations.
