Travel information

How to get to SLU Uppsala - Campus Ultuna

Visiting address: Servicecenter: Ulls hus, Almas allé 8, Uppsala

A cheap and convenient way to reach Uppsala from Arlanda Airport is to take regional bus no 801 from outside Terminal 5 (tickets can be bought at Arlanda). Cash is not accepted on the buses.

You can also travel by train from Arlanda. The trains are faster than the bus but more expensive. There is also the option of taking a taxi. Make sure the taxi company is from Uppsala and not Stockholm as thet will be more costly. You can always pre-book a taxi from Terminal 5 to Campus Ultuna.

You can find travel information and timetables for regional and local buses and trains at the UL web.

At the SJ web, you can search for departures from Arlanda to Uppsala central station and book your trip.

When you have arrived in Uppsala, you can take regional bus number 100 and 101 or local bus number 4 from the station to Campus Ultuna.

Inside the station, you will also find the travel centre for local buses and trains, UL. Across Kungsgatan (the main street closest to the central station where many local buses leave from), you will find the Uppsala tourist centre.
