Next change came in 2009, when the University board decided that this activity could not continue as a part of the University. It was then transferred into a company, Akademihotellet AB, owned by the Uppsala University Foundations Management of Estates and Funds. The hotel was now well established and could continue to seek new guests and customers on the private market.

The ideal location on Övre Slottsgatan and the historical surrounding areas are quite unique. Well functioning conference rooms, extraordinary breakfast, nice staff and cosy hotel rooms are valued by the guests.
In the year 2018, the hotel has 41 hotel rooms. 2 studios and 5 conference rooms. One of the conference rooms – Clasonsalen – is in Clasonska gården.

Clasonska gården

Our largest conference room, Clasonsalen, is situated on the second floor in Clasonska gården. This house was built in 1762 to be Post Office in Uppsala. The house stands on the foundation of an earlier office building for the Governor in Uppsala County, erected in 1699 and drawn by Olof Rudbeck the older. In the year 1773, the Post Office was moved closer to the city centre and the house was used as private housing for Prof. Edward Clason and remained in the Clason family until 1965, when it after a few rebuildings was sold to the University.

Welcome to Akademihotellet to feel moments in history!
