University’s Art Museum

The university community has a lot to offer to stimulate and enrich its members as they go about their work. Works of art from the University Art Collection adorn all university buildings and leave their impression on them. The collection was established in 1980; it owns a large number of works by acknowledged artists. Beautiful statues can be found in many locations on campus, the most famous of which is probably the statue by Ásmundur Sveinsson which can be found in front of the Main Building.
