The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and the Hotel Gothia Towers together form a fully integrated meeting place with a city-centre location. Everything under one roof, and with city life just outside the door. Chalmers Campus Johanneberg is just a two minute tram ride away.
Chalmers University of Technology
Chalmers is located on two campuses: Johanneberg in the city centre, and Lindholmen in the middle of the expansive Norra Älvstranden (north of the river). Chalmers also conducts research at Onsala Space Observatory 45 km south of Gothenburg.
The university is named after its major benefactor, William Chalmers, one of the directors of the successful Swedish East India Company in Gothenburg. Chalmers University of Technology was founded in 1829 through the will of William Chalmers.
Gothenburg, Sweden, is in the heart of Scandinavia, with characteristic maritime scenery at the waterfront, and the special Nordic light which has inspired artists for centuries. In August days are long and light. With its many outdoor bars and restaurants the city is buzzing with people both day and night.
For almost 400 years Gothenburg has looked outwards toward the sea and the world beyond. Our city was built and planned by Dutch and Germans. As a maritime city of trade and industry we have fostered close relationships and been able to exchange skills with many other countries. International contacts, outside influences and people from different cultures have always been an asset to Gothenburg, and still are today.
