Class Rooms & Bookings

Class rooms and group rooms at UID are primarily used for educational purposes. The equipment and furnishing of the rooms is adapted to different types of educational practices, according to the specific needs of a design school. Students can book rooms for shorter periods of time.

Class rooms

There are seven class rooms, or lecture rooms, at Umeå Institute of Design: The Green room, the Blue room, the Red room, the Black room, the White room, the Yellow room and the Rainbow room. These rooms are equipped for teaching and learning, and teachers planning education are assisted by UID's study administrators and house technician in preparing the room for different kinds of teaching sessions. Since methods and structures for education varies, it is important that everyone helps out by following a set of simple rules and guidelines when using a class room:

  • Furniture and equipment should never be removed from the room without checking with either house technician or study administrator.
  • Furniture and equipment should always be put back according to the order and layout described on the information sheet on the wall of the room.
  • Any specific needs for equimpent or furnishing should be communicated by teachers to the house technician well in advance (when scheduling of the course is done).
  • Workshop materials, visualisations, post-it notes and other stuff should not be left on walls, whiteboards and shelves past the booking time of each educational session unless planned and OK:ed by the course responsible. Any material left behind will be removed and possibly also thrown away.
  • Everyone at UID is welcome to use the rooms and holkens for UID related purposes. If a room is not booked, you are welcome to pop in and use it temporarily, but must also be ready to leave it if it is booked by someone else.

Making bookings

Everyone at UID is welcome to use the group rooms and holkens for UID related purposes. If a room is not booked, you are welcome to pop in and use it temporarily, but must also be ready to leave it if it is booked by someone else. Oh, and at UID everyone is of course responsible for keeping the facilities nice, and putting things back as they should be after using a room or space!

Students can book group rooms and holkens for shorter periods of time. If you need a room for a longer period, you need to talk to your programme director or course responsible, who then can make the booking for you if she/he approves.

Students can book a group room (holk) for max two occasions at the same time. (One occasion = max one day). Bookings should be made no earlier then two days in advance.

To make a booking, visit Adrian Löwander in the Administration corridor, or send him an e-mail, adrian lowander@umu.se. Or ask someone else in the UID staff to help you.

If you would like to book other rooms than these for study related purposes, please talk to your programme director or course responsible.

If you would like to book a room at UID or in any other Umeå University facility for other student activities, please talk to Ställverket or NTK who can assist with this. Bookings through the student union for joint student activities are also free of charge for the students involved.
