Welcome Activities

Stockholm University organises a series of welcome activities at the beginning of each semester.

The activities are designed to assist you as a new student and introduce you to university life in Stockholm and Sweden, attendance is optional. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are adapting to a digital programme at the start of the spring semester 2021.

An Arrival Service was held on 17 January for students who have received accommodation through Housing Office. Students who arrive from 18 January onwards can pick up their keys from the Housing Office at a later date.
