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. To exit through a locked door, always use the key button next to the door.

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. Press the key button to silence the alarm if you are holding the door open for a longer time.

Several doors at UID have emergency handles, with green stickers and seals, to be used in case of fire or other need for evacuating the building. These handles should only be used when evacuating the building, and not for everyday exit/entry. Please do not use the emergency handles unless there is an actual emergency, since this both breaks the green seal (and replacing it costs quite a bit) and often also sets off the alarm.

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