  A part of the University of Karlstad
by Rojo72

Karlstad University is one of the youngest universities in Sweden, but that's only due to the fact that there are two different kinds of universities here, "Universities" and "high schools" (which are universities, not american high schools). When I started studying here in 1991 there was about 4500 students here, nowadays it's over 10000.

The university library is newly built and well worth a visit too. It's located on the court of the University, to the left in the picture.
