The number of students that attend higher education is increasing (10.6%increase in Sweden), students are getting older, and have a different social situation than before. This changes the way universities should deliver education to its students. We currently use a very university centered approach that ignores the needs of the students, this must change to a more student centered delivery model. We believe that we must move into a form of flexible learning that allows students to be in control of their lives. In this article we explain such a model, the rational, how we rebuilt our lectures halls to handle flexible learning, and we concluded by presenting the lessons we learned along the way. We aim at presenting an example of how flexible learning can be incorporated into campus education by offering students three ways of taking part in lectures and other activities. (1) On campus in the lecture hall, (2) At home watching live streaming, or (3) Watching the recorded video after the fact.
