Welcome activities

Meet new friends and get to know the town and the university area.

The International Office cooperates with student organisations to organise many social activities. One example is the welcome fair, where all international students are welcomed. Other activites are:

  • Swedish Dance Nite
  • city quizzes
  • bicycle tours
  • BBQ
  • picnic and volleyball in the city park (Norrköping & Linköping)
  • walking tour of Valla farm and forest
  • guided tour of campus Valla
  • guided tour of Linköping Cathedral
  • fika afternoon in Norrköping
  • dinner party
  • ...and much more.

We also offer information sessions and information days. The information sessions help you get to know the Swedish system: public healthcare, insurances, the Tax office, Swedish history, etc.

Most of the activities are free of charge. A few, such as visiting the old part of Linköping, require a small fee in order to participate.

A schedule for welcome activities will be published at the start of the term.
