Getting Around in Umeå

One of the best things about living and studying in Umeå is that almost everything is within easy walking or cycling distance. Most people living in Umeå own a bicycle and it is by far the most popular way of getting around. Not surprising then that the city has over 180 kilometres of bicycle paths!

All the main student housing areas are situated within a 5 to 25 minute walk from campus, which in turn is just a short distance from the city centre. If you’re running late you can always jump onto one of the many buses that criss-cross the city.

No matter where you are you’re never far away from where you need to be in Umeå!
