Study and live in Visby

As a student at Campus Gotland, you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a highly-ranked, full-scale university and a small campus in the World Heritage City of Visby.

Located on the island of Gotland, the medieval city of Visby is home to Uppsala University Campus Gotland. Here you will be part of a unique study environment, with the small campus allowing for ample contact with teachers and students from other degree programmes.

With more than 1000 students in a city of 25,000 inhabitants, Visby is a place where students take part in the everyday life of Gotland. This is reflected in the range of cafés, cultural and sporting activities that you can find here. Our students associate life on Gotland with flexibility and dedication.
