hotel options

The Henrik Smith Residence will not be available for conference participants due to the current class of students and the incoming English and Study Skills Programme (ESSP) group. The new World Maritime University building is centrally located and there are several hotels within walking distance of the University. Note that June is a very popular month for events in Malmö, and hotel space will be limited so it is wise to make bookings for your accommodation of choice as soon as possible. There are a limited number of reserved rooms for the conference that are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the following hotels, kindly note that a credit card guarantee is required:

The walk to WMU and Malmö Live from the train station is less than five minutes. Exit the main entrance of the train station to reach the area where the buses load. Turn to your right and head towards the yellow building that says Malmö Börshus. Cross the street and head left. Turn to your right before you cross the canal. As you walk forward along the canal, the tower of the WMU building will come into view.  Take the foot bridge across the water and continue along the canal until you reach the WMU main entrance. Malmö Live is located just across the street from WMU. Look for the tall white tower.

Copenhagen (Kastrup) Airport 
Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen, Denmark is the closest international airport to Malmö, and just a short train ride away from WMU and the conference venue at Malmö Live. Train tickets can be purchased in the arrival hall after you have collected your baggage and cleared immigration. You must purchase your ticket before boarding the train. Trains to Malmö depart approximately every 20 minutes. The closest stop to WMU is Malmö C. Once you board the train, it should take less than 30 minutes to reach Malmö C.


Sturup Airport
Sturup airport is located in Sweden about 30 km outside Malmö. You can take a taxi to your destination of choice, or ride the bus to the Central Station in Malmö. The journey is approximately 45 minutes. From the train station you could take a taxi to your accommodations, although many hotels, and WMU are within reasonable walking distance.

Malmö Public transport system
Central Station is the hub for Malmö's excellent public transportation system. Please note that all tickets for train and bus travel must be purchased before boarding as cash is not accepted on buses or trains. Staff at the Central Station transport office, Skånetrafiken, can advise you on the best option for travel and purchasing tickets based on your destination. Information in English about local bus and train travel can be found here at the Skånetrafiken website. 


Central Station is the closest train stop, and main bus stop, to WMU. There is a taxi stand outside Central Station if needed although WMU and many hotels are within reasonable walking distance. 


Climate Neutral Travel
You can offset your travel and take responsibility for your travel footprint by using UN-certified emissions reductions though the UNFCC Climate Neutral Now initiative. Emission reductions are created by projects that either remove emissions from the atmosphere, for example, by absorbing carbon dioxide in trees, or avoid creation of new emissions, for example, by replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy.
