Once you are registered as a student at Umeå University, you
will receive a key card that will give you access to the school
24/7 during the study year. The card also functions as activation
for printers, and as a personal student ID card on all Umeå
University campuses. The card needs to be updated once a term,
using the card reader placed outside HumlabX.
If you have trouble with the card, or access does not work,
please talk to our house technician Anders Hellström.
Access during summer
The school will close between mid-June and late August every
year. Normally, the school closes two weeks after the end of term,
and re-opens one week before the start of autumn term.
The UmU card access will be inactivated during summer for all
students. If you have a specific reason for needing access to the
school during this period - for example if you have unfinished
course work that requires UID equipment - please talk to your
programme director about this. If your programme director agrees
that you need access for an extended period after the end of the
spring term, or before the autumn term starts, she/he will then
notify the Head of Department, who makes the formal decision of
extending access and notifies the house technician to prolong the
