LOCATION – ACCOMMODATION
The RENT Conference 2017 will take place in the centre of Lund city in the AF Borgen, located 5-10 minutes walk from the central train station in Lund.
Lund University is based in the city of Lund, close to Malmö (Sweden’s 3rd largest city) in the south of Sweden, close to both Denmark and Germany. The closest international airport to Lund is Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup) in Denmark, about a 40 minute train ride away, and the trains leave every 20 minutes. The journey takes you over the Öresund Bridge connecting Denmark to Sweden.
As one of the oldest cities in Sweden dating back to 990, Lund is a city of contrasts where 1 000 years of history blend with modern knowledge and ideas. In Lund, you find the charm of a small picturesque, cobblestone street city, alongside the attractions of a major city including shopping, restaurants and cultural events.
The University has a strong influence on Lund, with several university buildings located in the heart of the city. Lund Cathedral, dating back to 1145, is a focal point located in the city centre in the area known as Lundagård – the location of the RENT Conference 2017. Lund really is a student city. A large part of its 110 000 inhabitants are accounted for by Lund University students who, consequently, have a significant impact on it and contribute to its youthful, laid-back atmosphere. The young population influences all aspects of life in Lund, from the daily rhythm, to city planning, pubs and bars, museums and countless cultural and leisure activities. The combination of old traditions and history together with the bustling student life, strong academic emphasis and focus on innovation makes Lund an ideal place to host the RENT Conference 2017.
