Biomedicum visitors

Skyway and culvert connecting Biomedicum and BioClinicum

From Biomedicum the skyway is reached via the lunchroom located on floor 4 entering BioClinicum on floor 5. The culvert is reached via the elevator on floor 3 (same as to access the garage) or via the entrance door close to the bicycle garage on floor 2. You will need a KI or SLL access card with the correct authorization for passage.

Transport via culvert and skyway

The culvert is intended for transport of hazardous material, as well as larger materials or goods that that may require a cart. If the skyway will be used for transport of hazardous material (e.g. biological samples and chemicals), this transport has to be considered in a written risk assessment. Also avoid lunch hours for transport of hazardous material in the skyway since the lunchroom is in connection to the skyway.
