New building names in the Paradis area

LU Byggnad has recently decided on new names for some of the buildings in the Paradis area. The change is made to create a uniform naming scheme within the area.

The building names in the Paradis area have previously not followed the same template and the same building could have different names in different systems. After a review of the names, LU Byggnad is therefore introducing the old hospital names for the older buildings in the area.

The signs outside the buildings will be replaced gradually. The names of the premises in the TimeEdit booking system will be changed from the autumn semester.
