The project will be conducted on a partnering basis with Örebro County Council.
Örebro University was granted permission to carry out medical education in spring 2010 and now requires larger premises for its medical students. The first students began their courses in spring this year.
The research departments at both Örebro University and Örebro University Hospital will also be housed in the new premises.
The premises comprise an area of 11,600m2 divided among three floors and a basement. They will house a library, lecture rooms, offices, a restaurant, teaching space and laboratories. The project is scheduled for completion in September 2013 and the first students are expected in the new premises in the spring term of 2014.
About 50 people will be employed in the project.
