Västerås has a number of hotels at various price points. Below we list some of the hotels that are within short walking distance from the conference venue, in no particular order.


There are three airports in the region, and depending on which one you arrive at, you can take different means of transportation.

Arriving to Stockholm Arlanda airport?

Arlanda is the main international airport in the region and we recommend you to take an airport coach straight to Västerås, since this is the easiest and fastest way. The bus ride takes about 1,5 hours.

Arriving to Stockholm Skavsta airport?

This airport is actually about 100 km south of Stockholm, located just outside the city of Nyköping. We recommend you to take an airport coach to Stockholm and then continue by train to Västerås. The bus ride from the airport to the Central Station in Stockholm will take you about 80 minutes and the train to Västerås takes one hour.

  • Flygbussarna (the airport coaches)
  • SJ(the main train operator in Sweden)

Arriving to Stockholm Västerås airport?

This small airport is located just outside Västerås and you can either take a taxi or a city bus to the city center. There are often taxis just outside the entrance and they are similar in price, about 400 SEK to go to campus.

There are also regular busses departing about once every half hour (depending on time of day), the bus operating the route from the airport to the city center is number 3. See next section on the busses from the city center to the campus.

Getting from Västerås Central Station/Resecentrum to campus

When arriving to Västerås from any of the airports or by train from nearby cities you mostly end up at the Central Station (Resecentrum). There are basically three ways of getting from there to the university.

  • By bus - choose any of the bus lines 2, 6 or 21. Please ask the driver which direction the bus is heading, to make sure it will pass the university. The station for the university is called Universitet. Tickets can be bought onboard with credit/bank card. Please check out VL ’s own site for more information.
  • By foot - walking distance from the Central Station to MDU is about 1 km, and it takes you about 20 min.
  • By taxi - there are taxis outside the main building of the Central Station, and the ride to MDU takes about 5 minutes. It may cost 200 SEK (~20EUR).
