Housing area - Ryd

The student accommodation is in an area called Ryd, which is a suburb of Linköping. With its own town centre offering practically all the services you might need, Ryd almost feels like a town in its own right. You will have access to good laundry rooms and recycling facilities, a number of excellent study rooms, as well as a sauna, beach volleyball court, tennis courts and barbecue spots. For exercise and fresh air, you have the adjacent Ryd forest (Rydskogen) and there is also an excellent golf course next to the university. The University Hospital Campus is 25 minutes away by bus.

Visa information

EU/EEA citizens are allowed to stay in Sweden without residence permit for up to three months, however different rules apply to non EU/EEA students. Some foreign nationals must have a visa in order to enter Sweden. If you need a visa, as soon as you have received the acceptance to Linköping University Summer Academy, the visa application process should start. We are unable to assist in this process. For more information, please contact your nearest Swedish embassy or consulate.

If you need visa, please apply for it at the Migration Board and you do not need to fill in your address in Linköping (if you apply via a paper form at an Embassy or Consulate you most have an address).
