Since MAX IV is located on the outskirt of Lund, it might be a good idea to buy some food while you are in the city centre before you go to MAX IV.

Coffee machines are placed in different locations all over MAX IV, the coffee is free for everybody. There are a couple of coffee machines using fresh milk, they are turned off during weekends (Friday 15.00 – Monday 07.30).

Fresh fruit is available (free of charge) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The fruit baskets are located in the D-building dining room on the 2nd floor and the E-building dining room on the 4th floor.

Vending machines can be found on the ground floor and on the 4th floor in the E-building, and on the 1st floor in the D-building. Only payment by credit card is accepted. Our vending machines offer frozen and chilled meals, fresh salads, baguettes, and sweets. We have microwaves as well as refrigerators available for use in our kitchens on the 4th floor of the E-building. Please use the refrigerators marked “User fridge” in the small preparation kitchen and do not forget to mark your food items with your name.

Food trucks
There are food trucks visiting us 4-5 times a week approx. 11.30 am-1.30 pm, please ask the reception for updated days and times. The food trucks are parked just outside the MAX IV main entrance (E-building). It is out of our control if/when the food trucks cancel with short notice.
