Lund University (Swedish: Lunds universitet), located in Lund in the province of Scania, Sweden, is one of northern Europe's most prestigious universities[3] and one of Scandinavia's largest institutions for education and research[4][5][6][7], frequently ranked among the world's top 100 universities[8][9][10][11]. The university was founded in 1666 and is the second oldest Swedish university, but can arguably trace its roots back to 1438, when a studium generale was founded in Lund.[12]

Lund University has eight faculties[13], with additional campuses in the cities of Malmö and Helsingborg, with 27,780 students in more than 274 different programmes and 2000 separate courses. It belongs to the League of European Research Universities as well as the global Universitas 21 network.[14]

The university traditionally centers on the Lundagård park adjacent to the Lund Cathedral, with various departments spread in different locations in town, but mostly concentrated in a belt stretching north from the park connecting to the university hospital area and continuing out to the northeastern periphery of the town, where one finds the large campus of the Faculty of Engineering.
