(Original Swedish post here.)

Our guidelines on hiring university premises to outside parties are vague and need clarification. I am convinced many of us agree about this. I therefore raised the issue for discussion in the Management Council meeting yesterday, as I indicated I would last week, and Director of Building and Estate Services Peter Elenfalk has been instructed to draft new guidelines or a new policy. Further information about this is available (in Swedish) on the intranet (Medarbetarportalen).

The draft will be circulated internally for comment and several discussion sessions will be arranged. We hope that new guidelines can be in place at the beginning of the autumn term.

Today I approved Guidelines on first- and second-cycle students’ working conditions at Uppsala University (under the supervision of the President of the Student Union, as the picture shows). These guidelines apply from 1 July 2017. You will soon be able to find them on the intranet too.
