Campus Umeå is the main campus and focal centre of Umeå University, and is patterned after the American campus model. The vast majority of the courses and programmes are held in its many buildings and facilities, all within walking distance of each other.

Campus Umeå is also situated close to the city centre and getting around by bicycle or bus is easy. There are 180 kilometres of bicycle paths in Umeå. If you’re running or the weather conditions are bad, you can always jump onto one of the many buses that criss-cross the city and surrounding area.  Umeå is also easily assessible via plane, railway, bus, car, and even by ferry across the Gulf of Bothnia (to Vaasa, Finland).
