Real life event again

Finally, on September 7th it was time for Kalasmottagningen 2022! Kalas is an event with free entrance for all students at Linköpings University. The event aims to welcome new students to LiU but, of course, all students are welcome – no matter if you are a new or an old student! After two years of digital events, Kalas could finally take place in physical form again.

Fair and festival

Kalasmottagningen is an event that LiU carries out together with Linköping kommun, Norrköping kommun and Region Östergötland. The event is divided into two parts, a fair during the day where companies, associations and other organizations participate, and a festival in the evening where good music and different activities are offered.
