Temporary accommodation

As student rooms are only available for full calendar months, you might want to check in at a youth hostel first (vandrarhem).

Make sure that you reach an agreement with the hostel regarding when and how to pick up your key if you arrive late in the evening. Remember to bring your own bed sheets or you will have to pay extra. It might be difficult to get a room right before the semester starts so make sure you book well in advance!

Linköping City Hotel and Vandrarhem is located in the city centre. The price for a single room ranges from SEK 610 to 960 per night. 

Mjellerumsgården is a hostel located close to Campus Valla. The price starts from SEK 400 per night for a single room.
