Alternative facilities during building process

The University of Gothenburg and Akademiska Hus are planning a new building for the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts in the Näckrosen university campus area. The building will house both HDK-Valand and the Academy of Music and Drama. During the construction period, the Academy of Music and Drama needs to move to temporary premises.

The University of Gothenburg and Akademiska Hus are planning a new building for the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts in the Näckrosen university campus area. The building will house both HDK-Valand and the Academy of Music and Drama. During the construction period, the Academy of Music and Drama needs to move to temporary premises.

The project consists of parts of the Artisten building where the Academy of Music and Drama is located today, which is planned to be rebuilt and become larger. The building along Johannebergsgatan and the D-building will be demolished and replaced with an elongated building. Other parts of the Artisten building will be preserved and renovated. In the parking lot Fågelsången behind Göteborgs Stadsteater, a new, cube-shaped building is planned. That building will be visible next to the Museum of Art and the Stadsteatern.
 
While the new building is being realized, it will not be possible to stay in the Artist. We plan to move temporarily to other premises in the summer of 2022. Naturally, we want you as a prospective or existing student with us, to receive a high-quality education during the construction period. Until the new building is ready and we can move in, the institutions' main residence will be at Eklandagatan 86 in Johanneberg. We also hope to soon be able to tell you more about our planned collaborations with other institutions etc where you as a student will have access to professional stages, advanced technology and studios.
 
The faculty's new building is planned to be completed in 2027. The move is expected to take place in stages 2025-2027.

Eklandagatan 86

Eklandagatan 86 is about a 15-minute walk from Götaplatsen. For most people who study at the Academy of Music and Drama, this will be the place for classes and to meet other students. The premises have been rebuilt to suit our educations. Here you will find rehearsal rooms, dance rooms, ensemble hall, sound studio, percussion room and a concert hall for electrically amplified music. Of course you can heat your lunch box on site, and there are several eateries nearby. You who like to exercise can also enjoy the proximity to two of Fysiken's facilities.
