Getting here

The quickest and most common way to travel to Umeå is by plane. The time to fly from Stockholm to Umeå Airport is about one hour. SAS and Norwegian operates several daily flights to and from Arlanda, and Malmö Aviation offers frequent flights via Stockholm Bromma Airport. There are also suitable connections to other airports in Sweden (e.g. Gothenburg and Lund) via Arlanda and Bromma.  It takes about 10 minutes to go from the airport to campus by taxi. There is also an airport bus service which stops at campus (stop at "Universum").

SJ and Norrtåg offer train services to Umeå. Trains stop both at the city center (Umeå C) and at the campus/hospital (Umeå Ö). Nearby Umeå Ö is also a major bus station.
