The SciLifeLab buildings comprise around 15 000 square meters of lab and office space; and host about 700 researchers, staff scientists, and other personnel from our Stockholm-based host universities (Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University).

To get around SciLifeLab Campus Solna, you need an access card. All authorized personnel are registered by their Head of Division/Department in the SciLifeLab Staff Database, and will then be able to pick up their card at Site Support. More information on this is available at the intranet.
If you are a short-term guest – perhaps a visiting researcher or an external visitor – you are welcome to use a short-term access card. To book the card, your host emails Site Support on firstname.lastname@example.org and provides your name, affiliation, phone number and period of stay (a maximum of two weeks). You can then pick up the card in the reception (note that a deposit is required).
