Pick-up service during the official arrival days
During the official arrival days, the International Relations Office provides a pick-up service upon your arrival in Kalmar or Växjö. A student will meet you at the airport or the train station, provided that you have informed the International Relations Office of your time of arrival by the date listed in your acceptance pack. When arriving at the University, you will receive the keys to your accommodation as well as some information before you are taken to your housing.
Should you arrive after the official arrival days, you have to contact inexchange_AT_lnu.se. When you arrive you need to find your own way to the International Relations Office to pick up your keys and the information pack. This is by appointment only with the accommodation officer.
To help you settle into life at Linnaeus University, a mandatory Orientation Weekend will be held the weekend after the official arrival days. During the Orientation you will receive practical and academic information.
Important practical matters that you must take care of as soon as possible
1. Obtaining a student account
As a student admitted to Linnaeus University you will need a student account to be able to register your participation on courses and programmes, log in to computers, access course materials, email and other IT services at Linnaeus University. The International Relations Office will provide you with the log in information that you need to be able to open your student account. More information about how to obtain your student account.
You must be registered for the programme/course which you are studying on. You register by using Ladok on the Internet. The registration period as a rule is a week before the start of the course and also during the week of the course start.
3. Course/programme start
Make sure to find out when your course/programme start is and try to attend this meeting. In certain cases, attendance at the course/programme start is obligatory and provides the basis to be accepted as a student at Linnaeus University. If you are ill or have some other reason for absence, you must inform your school / department about this prior to the obligatory meeting.
