MDH and Serneke sign agreement for new campus Eskilstuna

Dec 28, 2016 | On campus

Today, on December 28, MDH and Serneke signed an agreement about the new campus in Eskilstuna. The new building will be built on Hamngatan where Sporthallen and Vattenpalatstet stand today. The new campus is expected to be ready for the fall semester 2019.

- In order to create a vibrant and modern campus where we can gather all our research and education in Eskilstuna under one roof, we are building a new campus in the city centre. Today's agreement with Serneke means that the building process can finally start, says Paul Pettersson, Vice-Chancellor of MDH

The first thing that will happen is that Sporthallen and parts of Vattenpalatset will be demolished. Since Vattenpalatset is a historic building, some parts will be preserved in the new university building.

- MDH's new campus will be a fantastic addition to the city centre and an important place for development and cooperation, MDH means so much in our urge to raise the level of education in Eskilstuna. We rejoice with MDH that the building process now can get started after a long wait for the decision from the The Administrative Court of Appeal, said Jimmy Jansson, Mayor, Municipality of Eskilstuna.
