Checklist – Campus LiU 2015
Some are underway, some have not yet started, and quite a few are finished. Here is the checklist for the various Campus LiU 2015 projects. So far.
Test rooms in C Building
During autumn 2012 a number of test rooms were set up in the C Building, so teachers and students could have their say regarding the design of a modern classroom. In the spring of 2013 a survey was conducted, where 77 people with varying connections to teaching answered questions about how a modern classroom should be.
New technology in all LOKE rooms
Projectors will be standard in all LOKE rooms. The job of extending and increasing the capacity of the wireless network throughout LiU started in spring 2013 and in June the new system went live, in virtually all of LiU.

Project: Kåkenhus Campus Norrköping
In spring 2013 an extensive project began, to make the Kåkenhus Building more vibrant by densifying and making better use of the large open spaces. This is done for instance by creating spaces for study stations and more student kitchens, and by giving the entrance to Skvallertorget are clearer profile with a café and study stations. On level 3 there will be an open plan office space for ITN and the external research institute Acreo.
Kåkenhus Building was newly-inaugurated in January 2014.
Project: Kopparhammaren 2 Campus Norrköping
By signing a rental agreement for Kopparhammaren 2 in Norrköping, LiU gets access to 5,000 sq. m. of new space, replacing some of the space LiU currently has in the Spetsen and Gropen blocks. LiU also gets a more cohesive campus centred around the new campus bridge.
Kopparhammaren 2 consists of two buildings. The property owner Klövern will put up a new building on what is called the “Burned Plot” and will renovate one building. LiU will rent the third building at a discounted rate, for future needs.
Construction start: August 2013.
Opening ceremony in October 2014.
Project: University Hospital of the Future
Underway at the University Hospital is a major construction project, to create the University Hospital of the future. The project involves building a new university building at the Northern Entrance, next to the student union building Örat, in the area where the aim is to create a campus entrance. The new university building will consist of the newly constructed building 511, which will be joined to building 001, which is being renovated. There will be offices and spaces for students, including lecture theatres, case rooms, group rooms, student kitchens and student services.
The university will also get spaces for instruction and students in a new wing, adjoining the main building.
Construction is underway. Expected completion: 2015.
Outdoor areas at Campus Norrköping and University Hospital Campus
In Norrköping the walkway along the river by Kåkenhus will get seating. At the University Hospital Campus there are plans for a number of new outdoor spaces.
Outdoor areas at Campus Valla
The outdoor areas at our campuses are very important. During the autumn, new furniture has been installed at the outdoor areas by Café Moccado in the C Building, on the south side of the Key Building and the A Building. The University Club has got new outdoor furniture.
Mezzanine at Kårallen
During autumn 2013 the mezzanine on top of Amigo in Kårallen has been renovated, and a lounge area has been created.
Painted parking areas for bicycles
To make the parking of bicycles more orderly, parking areas will be painted on the Corso. Work has started.
Work is underway. Expected completion: autumn 2013.
HUB, the library at the Faculty of Health Sciences, is getting old – and it is used intensively by the students. So it needs a facelift. Ideas are being gathered from everyone who uses HUB – students as well as employees. How do they want their living room to be?
Opening ceremony in October 2014.
New hamburger bar in C Building
In the location of the former café Cesam, a new restaurant will serve hamburgers and other meals made from quality ingredients, as well as yogurt ice cream with a range of toppings.

Common spaces in C Building
Common spaces in C Building will have new furnishing. The students account for the ideas. The interior facelift will begin in Colosseum and the work will then proceed with the other common spaces.
The first areas will be finished by the autumn 2014.
New flagship building at Campus Valla
The University Board supported the continued investigation of the plans for a new flagship building at Campus Valla.
On the location of the existing Origo Building, there are plans for a building that will be a meeting place – primarily for students. The new building will feature all the services our students need for life on campus, a centralised library, study stations and a café and restaurant. A central place for students and staff to gather, and a clear entrance to Campus Valla.
The space that becomes available if The Humsam Library moves from the D Building would make it possible to gather the university’s administration and the deans’ offices, and to provide space for new teaching and student spaces.
A decision to sign a rental agreement contract was made by the University Board on 16 February 2015.
