If you arrive to the stop "Chalmers" you should walk through the main entrance, take the stairs to the left and soon an overhead walking bridge covered in glass to your left. The Mathematics Department is the building to the right of the walking bridge.

Money
Card is king in Sweden. There is little reason to exchange Swedish currency before coming here.

Arriving at the Landvetter Airport(GOT):
You can take the airport bus ("Flygbussarna") to Korsvägen (this takes approximately 25 minutes from the airport). The bus ticket costs 105 SEK (single) and 195 (return) (you can purchase the ticket on the bus using the credit card, no cash) or 95 SEK(single) and 185 SEK (return) if you buy it on the Internet. See http://flygbussarna.se/en/landvetter for more information. Then take tram 6 or 8 one stop to Chalmers.

A taxi from the airport costs 500-600 SEK. There are pre-determined fixed prices to different parts of the town which is cheaper than going by the meter so it is better to ask for a fixed price, after specifying your destination.

If you stay at Quality Hotel Panorama or SGS veckobostäder you can take the airport bus to Korsvägen. You can either walk from there (850 m to the Quality Hotel Panorama and 1,1 km to SGS) or take bus 52 (direction Linnéplatsen) which will take you up Eklandagatan. The stop where you get off is Utlandagatan. The Quality Hotel Panorama will be on your right. Crossing the Eklandagatan you will see the Utlandagatan street building 45 degrees with the Eklandagatan. You will find the office at Utlandagatan number 24.

(Note that in the Landvetter airport, you have access to eduroam wifi network)


Arriving at the central station:

In case you arrive at the central station, the tram and bus station is called "Centralstationen". It is located at the south side of the building at Drottningtorget. There is also a coach-station (Nils Ericsson terminalen), which is on the opposite side of the train station, where the airport buses arrive. There are taxi stands on both the south and north side of the building. To go to Chalmers, take bus 58 (direction Skintebo) or tram 7 (direction Tynnered). The ride takes about 11 minutes. A taxi costs about 200-250 SEK and takes about 10 minutes. To go to Quality Hotel Panorama or SGS veckobostäder, take any tram going to Brunnsparken (one stop) or a short walk to Brunnsparken and then take bus 52 (direction Linnégatan) to Utlandagatan. The Quality Hotel Panorama will be on the right. Crossing the Eklandagatan you will see the Utlandagatan street building 45 degrees with the Eklandagatan. You will find the office at Utlandagatan number 24.

Local transportation:
Gothenburg has a good tram and bus network. The one-way fare (including switches) is 28 SEK. The trams usually leave at least every 10 minutes. You cannot buy tickets from the driver. Instead you need to buy your ticket on your phone (with the app Västtrafik ToGo) or from newsagents such as Pressbyrån, 7-Eleven or anywhere displaying the Västtrafik sign. In the new trams you can buy your ticket in a cash/credit card automat inside tram. For the precise timetables, check out www.vasttrafik.se. There is an English version, available through a link at the top left corner. See more here.

The department is located at the center of the Chalmers University of Technology campus, just 1,5 kilometers from the very heart of the city. From the Quality Hotel Panorama or from SGS veckobostäder you can walk.
