Things that we want you to do for your own safety

  • To leave the building immediately if the fire alarm goes off!
  • To be aware of our emergency exits, you find evacuation plans at all exits.
  • To not let anyone in into the building for safety reasons. If you still do – to contact the personnel or the university emergency phone 046-2220700 immediately.
  • To call 112 in case of danger – do not hesitate!
  • To never expose yourselves to any risks.

General Policy

The general policy is that working alone must be limited as much as possible. Working alone in connection with hazardous work is not allowed at Malmö Art Academy. It is of greatest importance that you are attentive to the risk of working alone by the machines in the wood workshop and in all workshops in Båghallarna. Always inform the responsible technician if you intend to work in the wood workshop or if you intend to use machines classified as risky in Båghallarna. Do not hesitate to contact the technician if you have any questions or concerns.

Fire alarm and evacuation

The Academy has a fire alarm directly connected to the fire brigade. In case of alarm, a signal sounds in all corridors. It is important to always get directly out to the schoolyard, which is the meeting place. Please knock on studio doors on your way out, to alert everyone that they have to get out. Always check the evacuation boards, placed on every floor, for alternative evacuation routes. Evacuation boards for alternative evacuation routes can be found on each floor. Learn them by heart! Evacuation plans (utrymningsplaner) can be found by the exit doors and on our website.

NOTE: Due to safety reasons, and risk of fire, it is not permitted to store materials or artwork in corridors or stairs. Fire Authorities require free escape routes and the schools risks severe penalties like fines or closure for non-compliance. Materials, furniture or artwork stored in corridors or stairs without permission will be removed and discarded.


It happens, unfortunately, that unauthorized persons sometimes try and succeed in entering the school. Therefore we urge attention and caution!

    Do not let anyone in (anyone who does not belong at school)
    Do not leave the studio doors unlocked
    Report immediately to staff if you see unauthorized persons in the building
    Do not expose yourself for risks at any time - call 112 in case of emergency or LU's emergency telephone 046-222 07 00 (+46 46 222 07 00) Do not forget to dial zero first if you are calling from an internal phone!

LU`s emergency phone goes to security or the University’s emergency service officer who is on duty around the clock. Securitas is employed for surveillance missions. LU`s emergency phone can be used by everyone, both students and employees. The alternative is to call the police - 112.

More information and telephone numbers:

Alarms are installed in our two gallerys. Before activationg the alarm make sure that windows and connecting doors are properly closed and that no one is in the room!

NOTE: To prevent theft and to prevent unauthorized persons from moving about in the building, we can only get in to most places in the building by using a key card or key card plus our personal code. The personal code is necessary on all outer doors.
