Information about the relocation and the ongoing work is available here. The information will be updated as the project progresses. So far, many details remain to be investigated and decided.
Work in progress
- Kemigården becomes a new hub for students
- Maritime education and infrastructure remain at Lindholmen
- Project planning is underway for new teaching facilities in Chalmers Teknikpark, with the aim of being put into use in the autumn semester of 2025.
- The work to find suitable premises for new study places continues, ranging from group rooms to quiet reading rooms. There are plans for about 250 new study places in the main library and about 150 new places in the MC2 building.
- In summary, the work in Phase 2 is progressing according to plan. Subsequent phases have not yet begun.
A campus for all students
Since the mid-1990s, Chalmers University of Technology has conducted higher education at both Johanneberg and Lindholmen in Gothenburg. Over the years, plans to create a unified campus area have evolved. In February 2023, the university, in consultation with the student union, among others, decided that Johanneberg will become Chalmers' unified campus.
On Campus Johanneberg, there is already a well-developed infrastructure for education that we want to develop further and share with all our undergraduate students. There are also synergies in gathering teaching in one vibrant campus area. For example, it provides better opportunities for joint studies, collaboration and community, both for students and teachers.
In total, approximately 2,500 educational programme places and 250 employees will relocate from Lindholmen to Johanneberg. The goal is for the Johanneberg campus to be ready in the autumn term of 2025 to accommodate all undergraduate students. The remaining relocation is expected to be completed by 2029.
Many details remain to be investigated and decided. It will take some more time before we know, for example, exactly in which premises each programme will have its teaching from the autumn semester 2025.
Lindholmen gets a stronger profile towards collaboration
Chalmers will remain at Lindholmen. Our operations at Lindholmen will gain a stronger profile towards collaboration with industry and society. It will thus be an important venue aimed at innovation and company-integrated research and education.
Phases on the road to a unified campus
- PHASE 1: A pre-study, in 2022, provided a basis for a policy decision
- PHASE 2: Planning and design, 2023–2024 and 2023–2029 prior to implementation, in short- and long-term plans/sub-projects
- PHASE 3: Implementation, 2024–2025 and 2028–2029, where moves are staggered, as well as short-term measures to address challenges along the way
- PHASE 4: Further development, 2025–2041 onwards, focusing on long-term measures, quality assurance and continuous quality improvement
How the work is organised
Working groups within phase 2, Planning and design:
- Relocation/placement of operations (sub-groups within departments)
- Learning environments – teaching halls, study areas, technology sections
- Scheduling – principles, IT tools, modelling
- Premises utilisation and finances – key performance indicators, cost management/distribution
