From a foundation built by Viktor Rydberg

The first student accommodation in Gothenburg was built on a street directly linked to the Academy, study and innovation - Viktor Rydbergsgatan. The first years the students' hostel Viktor Rydberg was run as a hotel during the summer months, when the students had holiday. The idea was to improve the economy of the driving foundation by renting out the empty rooms in the summer. It was this foundation that later became SGS.

The house has a solarium, a music room, hobby room and pub. Location is central and convenient with views of Chalmers.
