Alnarp is a village and university campus in Lomma Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden, lying between Lund and Malmö.

The estate of Alnarp dates back to 1325, and became the official residence of the governor-general of Scania in 1674.[1] In 1862, the existing Alnarp Castle was built to house a new school of agronomy, now part of the Alnarp campus of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

Alnarp also housed the headquarters of the NordGen.[2] Alnarp is famous for its park.
