University of Gothenburg is now the English designation for Göteborgs universitet. The decision was taken by the Vice-Chancellor on 21 January 2008. The name was previously Göteborg University.
The new designation applies from 1 February 2008 and will be introduced gradually. University of Gothenburg will be used on all the University’s English language web pages, letter templates, printed matter, signs and in all other contexts. This applies both to the English logo and when the name is written in text.
The Swedish word Göteborg is difficult for non-Swedes to say and write, not least as the letter ö is not present in most languages. In addition, Gothenburg is one of a small number of Nordic cities that has an established English name that is internationally known.
The name University of Gothenburg accords with the most common pattern among European universities with similar circumstances. Searches in academic databases and on the Internet show that University of Gothenburg is already a common designation for Göteborgs universitet on foreign websites and a common search word for those who arrive at University of Gothenburg’s website via search engines.
