Overview during construction period for New Ångström (2018–2022). Click the image for a larger version.

The Polacksbacken Campus area is easily accessible for visitors arriving by car, and there is plenty of parking space adjacent to the Information Technology Centre (ITC) and Ångström Laboratory.

The main parking areas are located in the ITC area, at the southern entrance to Ångström and in the newly built car park at Grindstugan.

  • Parking meters are located at car parks with rates posted.
  • NOTE: Payment by mobile phone was discontinued in December 2018.

Tickets issued in accordance with "Taxa 2" at Polacksbacken are also valid in parking lots at Uppsala University that belong to Akademiska Hus. For car parks that belong to other entities (such as the National Property Board Sweden), these tickets are not valid.

Temporary visitors

There are 7 guest parking spots available at the southern entrance to the ITC-area. A specific ticket required for guest parking and is available in the reception. NOTE: For a guest parking ticket to be issued, the person being visited must notify the reception about the guest in advance.

Disabled persons

Parking for people with disabilities is available at the southern entrance to Ångström Laboratory and at Buildings 1, 2 and 6 at the Information Technology Centre.

"Taxa 2" for employees and students

A valid access card allows you to buy a ticket at a reduced price (Taxa 2). If Taxa 2 does not work at one ticket machine, you can use another machine instead. At the Information Technology Centre, there is also a button to press to receive Rate 2. However, to use it, a special permit is required (it does not replace the access card).

Parking Subscription

It is possible to buy long-term subscriptions (by the month, half year, full year) for parking. Tickets for up to two weeks can be purchased at the ticket machine. For longer periods and for engine heater locations, contact the Aimo Park parking company.

Heavy or bulky cargo

Campus Management can issue a “Parking Permit for Service Vehicles” if you need to temporarily park the vehicle outside marked areas during loading and unloading or for any other reason. Contact Campus Management for more information.
