Welcome to Kemicentrum

Hi again, this is Yunjeong.

For you who might wonder where I study and how the building looks like, I am going to give you a quick tour to Kemicentrum (chemistry centre). Since Food Technology and Nutrition master’s program is based in Kemicentrum (KC), I have spent most of my masters time in KC.  The building complex of KC consists of four buildings, which are called Building 1-3 and 5. Building 1-3 were designed by a well-known architect Klas Anselm and constructed in 1964-1968. It is approximately 40 000 m² and one of the biggest research centres for education and research in chemistry in Nordic Europe.

Lecture rooms and Labs

The first picture shows the typical lecture hall in KC. As Kemicentrum is for researchers and students who study chemistry, chemistry engineering, and food technology, there are various facilities, laboratories, and pilot halls. Even KC has a kitchen and bakery labs, where my classmates and I are going to be this whole semester to develop a vegan product. They are equipped with ovens, cook utensils, and some spices.

Study place

There is a study room on the second floor where you can study yourself and can do a group work. My friends and I call here Heaven just because it is located upstairs. Do you want to be focused and be efficient? Go to Heaven and be isolated for a while until your daily tasks are completed.


Most courses in Lund university have a team project and many group tables and chairs around the building. No need to waste time looking for a place for group meetings.


This is the library of chemistry and chemical engineering in KC. You can find courses books here and borrow them. In addition, e-books for some courses are available on the web-page of the library, so check if it is and cut the cost! You can also print things in the library. Just need an LU card and print account.

Cafe Ester and Kafe Gallien

You always need a coffee break, Fika! Cafe Ester is a great option for it. Not only coffee and tea but sandwiches and lunch buffet are waiting for you with student-friendly prices. During lunch hour 12 am to 1 pm, a student union cafe, Kafe Gallein is open. A cup of coffee or tea is 5 kr and if you have your own cup it is 4 kr! Next to Gallein, there are many microwaves so that you can heat your lunch box and fix yourself.

I hope this post could you give a little insight into Kemicentrum. If you have more questions please comment or send me an email.

See you in a next post 🙂
