During office hours, 8.00-17.00, between Monday and Friday, the main UID entrance is unlocked. At all other times, and at all other UID entrances, you will need your Umeå university access card to enter the school.

All doors with a card reader at UID, outer doors and inner doors, have alarms that go off if the door is open too long, or if the door is forced open without using an access card or key button to unlock it.

If the door is held open too long, a beeping sound will start. If the door continues to be held open for some time after the beeping has started, an automatic alarm will be sent to the Umeå university security company. The security guards will then check the cause of the alarm, make a report of the time and cause, and send an invoice to Umeå Institute of Design. Any invoices caused by alarms of this kind going off during pubs or parties arranged by Ställverket, will be invoiced Ställverket by UID.

If a door alarm is set off after office hours, please notify the security company on telephone 090-786 76 00.
