  • Practical issues for students at the Department of Mathematical Sciences
    As a student at our department, you have all your education at Campus Johanneberg in the Chalmers area. This means that some things are different compared to students at other parts of the University of Gothenburg. For instance we use the examination halls of Chalmers and you also need to receive additional access to our premises. We have gathered practical aspects of your studies which applies to students at our department.
