New employee

department of informatics

Welcome to the Department of Informatics.

Introduction to new employees

At Lund University, a well-executed introduction is important as it creates well-being and a sense of belonging. It is important that the new employee feels well received and gets all the information needed to start working. 

As a new employee at the department you will receive the document Welcome to Informatics. Here you find information about your first working day, who the person responsible for your introduction is, who your mentor is, and your introduction programme.

To get you started

LU access card

You use the LU access card to enter university buildings and rooms. Find information on how to get one and opening hours on the LU card website

As soon as you have it. Ask Mari Lundberg to order access to your office. All other common rooms will be added to your card automatically within 1-2 days. Remember to update your card every day at the stations on the ground floor (hold the card still until showing green light).


Lucat is the people directory for Lund University. The log in is used as authorisation on your computer and for different IT services and systems to which you need access.

You need to activate your Lucat account with the one-time code provided by the Lucat administrator Mari Lundberg before you can start using it. Please, login to your lucat page to update your information (phone number, room, etc).

Information and communication

There are several channels for information and communication at the department. You find further information on this page.
