Campus Eskilstuna is open

May 11

Large parts of the University are situated in time-honoured industrial properties that have been refurbished up to a modern standard. By preserving the robust industrial architecture in brick and steel they have kept their charm from the old days at the same time as the buildings feel modern and fresh.

The new MDH in Eskilstuna

MDH’s activities in Eskilstuna are today spread among several industrial premises from the 1800s in the centre of Eskilstuna. To create a living and modern campus where all activities are gathered in one place, MDH, together with Eskilstuna Municipality, are building a new campus in the heart of the city. The new MDH in Eskilstuna is planned to be ready in the spring 2020.

MDH and Eskilstuna Municipality are investing together in a new campus in Eskilstuna. The building is being constructed where the sports Hall and the Water Palace previously stood. However, the old part of the Water Palace is being kept and transformed into a new University Library.

Open environment with great opportunities for collaboration

One of the goals is that the new area will visualise MDH as an open and modern study environment with great opportunities for collaboration. At the same time, today’s feeling of closeness and intimacy will remain. Since the current neighbourhood is situated in the centre of Eskilstuna it is also important that the new building is designed so that it contributes in a positive way to the city centre.

Around 4 000 students and 300 staff will be studying and working at the new campus. Its area will be 20 000 m².
