As a student at Campus Lindholmen you are in the middle of Gothenburg's technology and innovation centre.
Lindholmen is continuously developing in new directions. Here you become part of an international environment with companies in areas as for example IT, vehicles and media. Lindholmen Science Park with the Navet building (The Hub) is located in the middle of the innovation area with its conference facilities, meeting points and cross disciplinary projects. Lindholmen is a fairly large educational environment and you meet both college students and students from University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology.

The Library in Kuggen at Lindholmen (information from the Gothenburg University Library)
PLEASE NOTE! When the library unmanned, you enter by using your GU card via the entrance facing Patricia Building. (The smaller entrance near the glass dome.) There you find a specific card reader for students at University of Gothenburg.
Public transports from Lindholmen to the city center
At the bus stop "Lindholmen" you find a number of bus lines (see Västtrafik) and it takes about 7 minutes to get to the Central Station by No. 16.
A nice alternative is a trip by the ferry Älvsnabbare (free of charge) across the river straight to Stenpiren, and continue from there by bus or tram. At Stenpiren you are already in the middle of the city!
You can also take the ferry Älvsnabben, which operates between Klippan-Eriksberg-Slottsberget-Lindholmspiren-Stenpiren-Lilla Bommen and back.
