BMC has a server room in D11:0. The room was built in 2013 and is maintained together by the IT-division (UUIT) at the university administration (UADM) and Uppsala Biomedical Centre (BMC). The management team (styrgrupp) for the BMC-hall includes the IT director of the IT-division and the director of Uppsala Biomedical Centre.


The server room is equipped with:

The BMC-hall-router VLANs on the normal BMC-hall-switches cannot be shared with the VLANs on the router (called the BMC-router) for the rest of the building. Contact for help with network configuration for the server room.

Current rate is 60000 SEK/rack/year or 2000 SEK/U/year plus a one time fee of 5000 SEK. (This should be about the cost of production. Prices from 2015-06-05.)

For renting space in the server room, contact

Also consider renting virtual servers or using some of the shared services at the university before buying your own physical servers. Contact for renting virtual servers in the the shared VMware environment or storage. Contact UPPMAX for using the shared HPC resources for computation and storage. Check on them from time to time to see what they are up to before building something on your own to reduce the duplicated effort.

The BMC server room does not have a postal address. If you want to send packages of servers or other equipment to the server room at BMC please send to BMC-IT with your name as the recipient. (If you or your department has offices at BMC just send it to yourself at your department, do not send to BMC-IT.) Send us a mail to so that we know what is going on. When your package has been delivered you can pick it up at The Goods Reception and you need to show your ID.
