TRAVEL INFORMATION

Extensive information about getting to Stockholm and KTH can be found here. The following is a brief summary:


By train

The university campus is situated near the subway (and bus) station Östra Station. When arriving by train to Stockholm Central Station, the subway can be accessed at a lower level (compared to where the train arrives) at the station. Follow the signs and take the red subway line towards "Mörby Centrum", exit at "Tekniska högskolan" (third stop from Stockholm C).


By plane

Via Arlanda Airport (ARN)

From Arlanda Airport take either the express train "Arlanda Express" or commuter rails to Stockholm Central Station. The express train can be accessed from terminals 2 and 5, whereas the commuter rail can be accessed only from Terminal 5 (from "Sky City"). Tickets are available from ticket booths or from the machines, both within the arrival hall (it is not possible to purchase a ticket on either train).

Via Bromma Airport (BMA)

There are both shuttle and local buses going from Bromma Airport to Stockholm Central Station. For the airport shuttle, tickets are sold at the airport Pressbyrån newsagents, at the self-service payment machine at the bus stop, and on board the coach. For local buses, tickets must be purchased in advance; please see SL's webpage for more information, including routes and schedules.
