History of the university site
The land occupied by the university premises was originally an industrial site. Jönköpings Mekaniska Werkstad erected the first factory buildings here during the 1860s, and the historical character of the area has to some extent been preserved. For example, parts of the new University Library are housed in the former foundry hall.
