One fourth of all doctoral students and undergraduates and one fifth of all employees at Uppsala University work or study at Ångström Laboratory every day.

The campus area is located in the beautiful surroundings of Polacksbacken about 3 km south of central Uppsala. The departments at Ångström Laboratory conduct research within a wide range of subjects touching all corners of the natural sciences, energy, technology, mathematics and information technology. Education of both scientists and engineers takes place in an environment with a strong research orientation.

The facilities at Ångström Laboratory campus comprise about 70,000 square metres, which constitutes almost 20 per cent of Uppsala University’s total premises. The campus accommodates about 3,200 full-year students and 1,700 employees. Together they produce about 600 publications and 70 doctoral theses a year, which is more than 10 scholarly articles and at least one new doctor a week!

Welcome to the Ångström Laboratory Campus!

The "New Ångström" project

The “New Ångström” building project, the largest in the history of Uppsala University, involves two new buildings (Building 9 and Building 10) as well as relocations throughout the existing buildings to optimise operations at the Ångström Laboratory. Read more about the project here.

We continually publish information about current and upcoming downtime, shutdowns or other disruptions that may affect people visiting anyone who works at Ångström Laboratory. Up-to-date building information can be found here.

Welcome to Ångström Laboratory, Building 10. Information about Building 10 and its climate control system, temperature regulation, ventilation, lighting, evacuation alarm and fire prevention etc. can be read in a flyer from the property owner Akademiska hus.
