Here you can find information about the multifunction card at Umeå University, the Umu card.
Remember to renew your Umu card
Do you have an Umu card without a QR code? If so, you need to order a new card and pick it up by December 18, 2023. You can order a new card through the Umu card portal or go to the Infocenter in Universum and use the photo booth there.
The Umu card is a multi-function card for employees and students and has the following functions:
- Access card
- Library card for the University Library
- Copying and printing card.
The umu card is valid at Campus Umeå, Umeå Arts Campus and Campus Örnsköldsvik.
How can I get the Umu card?
To be able to apply for an Umu card, you must first activate your Umu-id. After that you can place your order for your card in the Umu card portal.
You choose in the portal where you want to pick up your card. When the card is ready, you will receive a notification in the portal and via email. Remember to bring a proof of identity when picking up the card.
How the Umu card functions
Your Umu card works as a library card for the University Library, Medical Library, UB Arts Campus and Archives and Special Collections.
Entry to the University's premises
The authorisation is controlled by the department, office or equivalent where you are employed. If you require extended authorisation, please contact the Campus Services Office. The Umu card does not function as an access card in University Hospital of Umeå (NUS) premises.
Printing, copying and scanning
You can use your Umu card to identify yourself at the printer when you want to print, copy or scan. You can print from University computers or from your computer and collect your printed pages from any printer within the University. Your Umu card is linked to the department, unit or equivalent where you are employed. The cost of your printed pages and copies will be invoiced there.
Guest card for employees who forgot their card
Infocenter, the security group at Campus Services Office and employees responsible for passage, can issue guest cards that are valid for one day. These cards have the same authorization as the person's regular card but cannot be used as a library card or for copying, printing, or scanning. The person's regular card is blocked until the guest card is returned.
Guest card for temporary guests
Do you have guests who temporarily need an access card? You can order it from the security group at Campus Services Office. They register the person for a guest card (up to 5 days) or an external individual card.
