Life on campus

"Even though you, naturally, don't know every student on campus, it feels like you're part of a little family once you're here."

- Stina, former student on campus Valla.

Studying, meeting friends, attending lectures, having ''fika''... you will probably spend many hours on campus. With essentials like free wi-fi, tasty food, and cosy reading corners available, LiU will soon become your second home. There is even a free bus!
