Venues connected to the auditorium

Connected to the auditorium, is a large venue called Brashörnan. This venue is usually used for serving coffee in conjunction with conferences/performances. Brashörnan is also frequently used for product exhibitions in conjunction with conferences and by companies in Umeå that wish to show their products to university and hospital staff. Should you need small group rooms these are available in an adjoining building.

Food and drink

Universum’s glass walled upper floor offers both a fine view and servering of meals and light refreshments. The lunch restaurant Lingon serves, amongst other things, “fitness food”, sushi and typically Swedish food. The Blåbär café offers various home-baked treats. This venue is also ideally suited to providing a pleasant end to your conference in the form of a dinner/banquet.
