Information for visiting researchers

The Division of Astrophysics is currently located at Sölvegatan 27. On the ground floor you will find our lecture halls: Andromeda, Cassiopeia and Lundmarkssalen.  The offices and the asatronomy library can be found on the first floor (take the spiral staircase up).

Traveling to Lund Observatory

Please note that the nearest international airport to us is in Copenhagen.  From there the train ride to Lund takes ca 40 minutes.  The easiest way to get from the Lund central station to the Division of Astrophysics is to take a taxi, but if you have limited or no luggage then the 20 minute uphill walk is also a good choice.

Access to building/offices

Doors leading to the offices are locked, and you will need a key card to move freely around.  Administrative staff can provide you with a temporary key card during your stay if you need one.

Internet access

If you have an Eduroam account you will be able to access the wifi during your visit.  If you need a wired connection your computers MAC address will have to be registered in the system.
