Security guards

Security guards for AlbaNova are provided by Securitas under the administration of KTH. Security officer for AlbaNova is Lena Edvardsson, tel. 08 - 790 8805.

24-hour security

To assist the security guards, KTH has a 24-hour security team of five persons. To reach the 24-hour security team, ring 08 - 790 77 00(internal extension 06 - 7700)at any time of day or night.

During office hours, KTH's switchboard will answer calls to the 24-hour security number.
The switchboard will then page KTH's 24-hour security team and AlbaNova's security officer, who will assess the severity of the alarm and take necessary action.

Outside office hours, the 24-hour security number is connected to Securitas' alarm central.
Securitas will then try to contact the KTH security team and if necessary AlbaNova's security officer.


All external doors in all buildings, and some internal doors, particularly to computer halls, are equipped with silent alarms.
This means that when a seal is broken, a signal is sent to Securitas, though no local alarm is raised.

Every time someone opens a door with an emergency handle instead of using the unlock button, a signal is sent to Securitas and AlbaNova must pay for unnecessary action by Securitas guards.


SU and KTH have an operations insurance policy with the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency(Kammarkollegiet). The two universities' respective insurance policies apply for AlbaNova.

Emergency plan

AlbaNova's Emergency plan is an folder with floor plans and telephone numbers, kept updated to assist KTH's 24-hour security team.
The plans include details of risk areas for emergency services, for example distribution plants, gas cylinder store and chemicals store.

When AlbaNova's alarm in the main building is activated, the emergency services will contact KTH's 24-hour security team for comprehensive risk information.

The telephone numbers in the emergency plan are the following:

Security officer KTH/AlbaNova:
