Study environment

Mathematics students study at campus Ångström. The campus is located twenty minutes walk from the castle and the botanical garden.

At the beginning of each academic year, the university and the student unions arrange welcome activities for new students. The activities are an appreciated introduction to the student city of Uppsala.

Academic traditions at Uppsala University

For elementary school students: Math Club

Math Club Uppsala is a collaboration between Uppsala municipality and the Department of Mathematics. It is an activity for children who are good at math, but want to explore more difficult math than the subject at school. The math that is discussed at the meetings lies usually outside the school program and the focus is on developing problem-solving and reasoning skills.
