Umeå University's Campus Umeå is the main campus and is patterned after the American Campus model. Consequently, almost all of the courses and programmes that are taught in English take place on Campus Umeå or at the adjacent University Hospital.
There are actually two campuses in Umeå, the largest city in northern Sweden. Campus Umeå is the main campus and focal centre of Umeå University, and the vast majority of the courses and programmes are held in its many buildings and facilities. The University Library with its 1.2 million volumes, and Universum, the campus' hub, with its pubs, cafés, restaurants, InfoCenter, student study rooms and much more are situated on Campus Umeå.
Umeå Arts Campus
Umeå Arts Campus (konstnärligt campus) is situated on the east side of town by the scenic banks of the Umeå River and is within short walking distance of Campus Umeå. It hosts the Umeå Institute of Design, Umeå Academy of Fine Arts and new Umeå School of Architecture. HUMlab-X also has been given a place at this new "artistic campus," along with Bildmuseet, Umeå University's museum of contemporary art and visual culture.
Umeå Arts Campus
Campus Skellefteå and Campus Örnsköldsvik
Our campuses in the Skellefteå and Örnsköldsvik mainly offer programmes and courses with regional ties, both full-time and part-time courses at a slower study tempo. The educational programs are developed and designed according to an inventory of needs with local or regional connection.
Other Study Locations
Umeå University also has a presence in many other towns and municipalities in northern Sweden, including Lycksele and Kiruna. In addition, thousands of people who are enrolled in our wide selection of distance education courses and programmes have the flexibility of primarily studying in their home environments.
