The extension and rebuilding work on Campus US is slightly ahead of schedule. This is due to the county council already having begun work on the new university hospital and the fact that the university’s and council’s operations are so closely interconnected on US.
The Faculty of Health Sciences has long been overcrowded and a new university building has been at the top of the wish list. If everything goes according to plan, work on the new university hospital will begin in April 2013 and the building will be completed in 2015.
The new building will be located by the US’s northern entrance, next to the Örat student union, an area where a campus entrance is being planned. There will be a whole new building, 511, which will be merged with Building 001, which is being renovated and given a glass roof, among other things. There will be offices and student facilities including an auditorium, case rooms, group rooms, student kitchens and a student service centre.
But as the county council’s and university’s activities are so closely integrated, the Faculty of Health Sciences will also be affected by the rebuilding work on US. Two new buildings are being constructed near the northern entrance,where the university will have tuition rooms, conference rooms and group rooms.
