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.
The welcome activities in spring 2024 start with Arrival Service on the 14th of January, and on the 18th of January there is a Welcome Fair. Around these dates, there are more activities. This page will be updated with further activities continuously. Attendance is optional.
The Arrival Service is the first event of the Welcome Activities and is open to all new international and exchange students at Stockholm University. Student ambassadors and university staff will welcome you and help you settle into your new life in Stockholm and Sweden.
