At Campus Solna

SciLifeLab’s Stockholm site is mainly located in the buildings Alfa and Gamma at Campus Solna, just outside Stockholm city in the Hagastaden district. Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital are located nearby, as well as several governmental agencies, institutes, and businesses connected to education and research within medicine and health.

The SciLifeLab buildings comprise around 15 000 square meters of lab and office space; and host about 900 researchers, staff scientists, and other personnel from our Stockholm-based host universities (Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University). By bringing people together across traditional university-, faculty- and department boundaries, SciLifeLab Campus Solna creates many opportunities for networking and initiating joint projects.

To get around SciLifeLab Campus Solna, you need an access card. All authorized personnel are registered by their Head of Division/Department in the SciLifeLab Staff Database, and will then be able to pick up their card at Site Support. More information on this is available at the intranet.

If you are a short-term guest – perhaps a visiting researcher or an external visitor – you are welcome to use a short-term access card. To book the card, your host emails Site Support on and provides your name, affiliation, phone number and period of stay (a maximum of two weeks). You can then pick up the card in the reception (note that a deposit is required).

Internet access

All permanent desks have a wired network connection (also connected to the printers). Apart from this connection, there are two wireless networks available: Eduroam and KTH OPEN Guest.

Eduroam is a global wireless network provided in educational institutions, libraries and airports around the world. It is set up as a collaboration between universities to provide network access for visiting staff and students.

To set up Eduroam, please see your organization’s instructions, for instance:

KTH OPEN Guest is a network provided by KTH Royal Institute of Technology, accessible to guests at SciLifeLab Campus Solna. Guests need login credentials which are organized by their host. Hosts are asked to email (using their SciLifeLab email account) with the following information:

Akademiska Hus manages the parking at Campus Solna. There are several different parking options for cars and bikes, depending on whether you are a visitor, a tenant or a Karolinska Institutet employee. There are hourly, daily and monthly rates.
