Here you will find information about how the university works with internal and external communication, programme communication and press relations. You will also find a range of templates and information materials that you can use in your own communications.

Umeå University's communication must be:

  • Open: Factual, accurate, clear, honest and easy to understand
  • Pro-active: Planned and one step ahead.
  • Tailored to the target group: Each message should be tailored to the needs, conditions and requirements of the different target groups.

If you have any questions or need help with university-wide communication, please contact the Communications Office. Each faculty also has its own public information officer who works with faculty-specific communication.

Inhousebyrån at the Communications Office is the university's internal resource for the layout and production of information material.

Contact details can be found under Contact information.
