How to reach PELAB

PELAB is situated in Building B, Linköpings Universitet (Valla Campus), Linköping

To Linköping University

Linköping is situated in southern Sweden, 200 kilometres south of Stockholm. The Copenhagen-Stockholm link of the central European railroad trunk passes through the city, as does the arterial Euro-Highway 4 (E4).

By Air and Train

(see also the corresponding LiU page with further information)

By air it takes about one hour from the Copenhagen International Airport (CPH), 35 minutes from the Stockholm International Airport (ARL) and 100 minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol airport (AMS). There are two local airports - one in Linköping (LPI) and one in Norrköping (NRK) - with regular flight connections to domestic and international destinations.

Well suited is also the Stockholm-Skavsta airport (NYO) in Nyköping, located just half-way between Linköping and Stockholm, which has daily flight connections from various places in Europe by low-fare airlines, and is only 90 bus/car minutes from Linköping.

Those arriving at Norrköping International Airport (NRK) can continue to Linköping by taxi. When planning to leave Linköping make sure that you book an airport taxi to Norrköping Airport in advance through a travel agency or SAS booking office. In that way you can get a reduced fee. It is also possible to continue to Linköping by commuter bus or train, but in that case you must first take a taxi to downtown Norrköping (five kilometers). Commuter bus 49 (?) will take you to Linköping. Trains also run regularly.

From Nyköping-Skavsta (NYO), take the airport bus to Linköping (90 min, approx. 150 SEK) that departs in front of the terminal and arrives at the Linköping long-distance bus terminal close to the train station (Resecentrum). Note that you can buy the bus ticket (recommended to buy a return ticket) at a counter in the arrival hall or beforehand on the web, but not in the bus itself.

The cheapest (actually, the only) alternative for those arriving at Linköping Airport (LPI) is to take a taxi downtown to "Resecentrum", and from there continue by bus to their final destination, see below.

Linköping and Norrköping can be reached by train or car from Copenhagen in five hours and from Stockholm in less than two and a half hours.

In both cities, the train station is situated a ten-minute walk from the city centre.

There are regular bus connections from Linköping train station (Resecentrum) to the main university campus (Campus Valla). E.g., take bus 12 towards Lambohov or bus 20 to the campus. Leave the bus at bus stop Vallfarten (it is one bus stop after the one called Universitetet) and walk east. Also, bus line 2 can be taken from resecentrum to the Campus Valla, leave at bus stop Campushallen and walk north (sports hall Campushallen to your right). Bus line 4 is also an option but it should be left already at bus stop Friidrottsarena.
NB - Bus tickets cannot be purchased in the bus. With a swedish mobile phone subscription, you can pay the fare by SMS (see instructions at the station) just before entering, or purchase at the Östgötatrafiken counter at the train station a pre-paid card (resekort) from which the fare will be deduced (using an automaton in the bus). See Östgötatrafiken for further information.

By Car

Coming from Jönköping or from Stockholm on the E4, leave at Linköping West (that's the first stop of Linköping from south-west or the last stop from north). Follow the signs to University. You will drive on a still four track motorway about 4km. Then you reach a huge roundabout, the Valla rondellen. Here you take the first to the right, again direction University. Continue straightforwardly after the following small roundabout. Enter on entrance 2 of the university (it is the second on the left). Go straight ahead across a crossing, and you should enter a large parking lot. Find a place. NB - the parking row closest to the Zenit house costs a fee.

To PELAB offices

Campus Valla

Pelab is in B-house, first floor between entrance 29 and 27. Search for house B. It should be on your left, a large red-brown building. Straight ahead should be building Zenit (you can see it from the large letters on the buidlings).

Walk between B and Zenit to the back side of B, turn left and take entrance 29 just around the corner. If entry door 29 is locked, try the next entrance (27) instead. Note that the doors are generally locked outside business hours.

In the building you go up the stairs to the first floor. Straight ahead, then take the next door to the right (from entry 27: to the left). Here you should find the PELAB offices.
