Centre for Languages and Literature

The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology | Lund University


SOL buildings

The Centre for Languages and Literature is made up of several separate buildings which are linked and which all contain teaching premises. As a new student, it is not always easy to find your way and you are naturally welcome to ask for help. A short guide is given here – please make use of the outline map at the link below!

Absalon (A)

Besides teaching rooms and offices, Absalon House is also home to the Humanities and Theology Students’ Union (HTS) and the International Liaison Officer for the Faculties of Humanities and Theology (on the ground floor). Down in the basement, there are group rooms which can be booked at the reception in the foyer. In the basement is also the ‘quiet room’, where you can go if you need some peace and quiet.

Library (B)

Here are computer rooms (floors 2 and 3) and the Humanities Lab (basement), as well as silent reading rooms on floors 3 and 4.

The Humanities House (H)

Here you will find the study advisors of the Centre, as well as the Auditorium (ground floor) and teaching rooms and offices.

The Linguistics House (L)

Teaching rooms and offices.

How to find the right room: The room numbers on the timetables have a letter and three numbers, e.g. L201. The L stands for Linguistics Hose (Lingvisthuset) and 201 is the room number. If the room number begins with 0, this means basement, 1 means ground floor, 2 means 1st floor, etc.

Evacuation procedure

Be sure you know where the nearest fire extinguisher is located and where the evacuation routes are! There are two alternative routes. Study the evacuation maps displayed in corridors and stairwells. The assembly point in the case of an emergency evacuation is the University Library Park.
