Welcome to Lund University
Here you will find information about our Welcome days and a welcome package with information about Sweden, Lund and Lund University. A comprehensive guide will help you when settling in as a new citizen. We have also compiled information about the practical things you will need in order to start working.
The University organises welcome days twice a year for all the new employees at Lund University.
Administrative systems at Lund University
The most important ones are SSC PRIMULA (HR-system, reporting sickness, getting your pay-slip, filling in travel expenses), LUPIN (an order system: you place orders and pay the invoices in the same system), LUCAT (A staff directory), LUCRIS, Lund University’s research information system (information on researchers, research groups, projects or research-related activities within, for example, external engagement), Kompetensportalen (system for professional development for staff).
You need an access card, known as an LU card, with a photograph in order to gain entry to University premises.
Internal mailing codes, cost centres
To send something to someone via internal mail, you need to know the internal mailing code for the person or the organisational unit. It is sometimes abbreviated to HS ("hämtställe" in Swedish).
In order to do certain things, like book premises or buy something on invoice, you need to know the cost centre of your organisation. This is a six-figure code. Ask your manager what your cost centre is.
