LiU Summer Academy social activities

LiU Student Hosts always take good care of our LiU Summer Academy students and organise different kinds of social activities to ensure you make the most of your stay in Sweden. Here is a list of some of the social activities planned for 2023.

Shorts tips, excursions and activities

Please note all short trips and excursions are at the student's own expense but some activities are covered by Linköping University.

Stockholm Trip

A short trip to Sweden's capital city Stockholm is on an international students' bucket list. Join your LiU Student Hosts and Summer Academy peers for an overnight stay at a cosy hostel in Stockholm. Enjoy lunch on a boat trip in the beautiful Stockholm archipelago and explore the rest of this fascinating city.

The Swedes enjoy doing their regular exercise, whether it's soccer, floorball or cross-country skiing. According to the Eurobarometer the Swedes exercise most of all Europeans, with 7/10 of the population on a regular exercise program.

Campushallen offers everything from indoor cycling, yoga and classes like Bodypump to volleyball and badminton. Please find more information on their website:

The LiU Student Hosts will take the LiU Summer Academy students on an introduction tour to Campushallen and also arrange some activities in one of the bigger training halls.

Make sure you take advantage of this great possibility and stay active during your studies!
