Welcome to paradise
The Department of Sociology is located right in the heart of Lund, a few minutes away from Lund Cathedral. This small campus area with beautiful trees and architecture is called "Paradiset" (meaning paradise) and offers plenty of study areas and several cafés, as well as a number of other Social Science departments and the main University Library.
