Renting the Premises at Polacksbacken

It is possible to rent teaching rooms and lecture halls for conferences and meetings if the rooms are vacant, but teaching is always prioritized.

For conferences and the like, the Polacksbacken Auditorium in building 6 at the Information Technology Center (ITC) is most suitable. In addition, it is usually Siegbahn Hall, Hägg Hall and Polhem Hall in Ångströmlaboratoriet that are rented out, but other premises such as classrooms and seminar rooms can also be booked for various purposes that fall within the framework of the university's rental policy. From June to mid-August, there are often many vacant premises.

Bookings should be made about six months in advance (depending on scheduling). Contact the reception at Campus Polacksbacken for more information about prices, availability and booking.
