Översikt av SOL-husen


The SOL-building is made up of several separate houses which are linked together. Please ask our staff in the reception if you have any questions about directions or the location of your lecture room. They will gladly help you!

Absalon house (A)

On the ground floor of this house you will find several offices, lecture rooms, the Student Union for Humanities and Theology(HTS), our employment forum and the International Office. In the basement of the house you can find a quiet room for relaxation and several bookable meeting rooms. For bookings contact the reception located in the atrium.

Library (B)

Here you will find the SOL Library, a computer room (floor 3), the Humanities Lab (in the basement) and quiet reading rooms (floors 3 and 4).

Humanities house (H)

On the ground floor of this house you will find most of our academic advisors that operate in the SOL-building as well as the Auditorium. There are also several offices and a number of lecture rooms in the house.

Linguistics house (L)

Here you will find lecture rooms and office spaces.

A room consists of a letter and three numbers, e.g. L201. The L stands for Linguistics Building (Lingvisthuset) and 201 is the room number. If the room number begins with 0, this means the basement, 1 means the ground floor, 2 means 1st floor, etc.


Outdoor tactile paving guides the visually impaired to the entrances of the SOL building. These in turn connect to indoor tactile flooring. These entrance points provide the easiest access to lifts and ramps leading to the various parts of the SOL building.

Audio induction loops in the Absalon house (A) are available in the lecture rooms A121, A129b and A339. In the Humanities House (A) they can be found in the auditorium (Hörsalen) and in the lecture rooms H135a, H135b, H140, H239a and H339.
