The Arrival Service is the first event of the Welcome activities that we arrange in order to make international students feel welcome at Stockholm University. It takes place on 19 January, 2020.
The Arrival Service consists of four parts: the Welcome teams at Arlanda airport, the Arrival shuttle bus service from the airport to the university's main campus, the Arrival Day at Studenthuset and the Shuttle bus service from Studenthuset to your accommodation.
Welcome teams 10:00 am to 7:00 pm
The Welcome teams will be waiting for the international students in the arrival halls of Terminal 2 and Terminal 5 at Stockholm Arlanda Airport between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm. The Welcome teams will help you find your way to Stockholm University's main campus, your accommodation or central Stockholm.
Arrival shuttle bus to campus 11:00 am to 7:00 pm
Every hour between 11:00 am and 07:00 pm, there will be a bus leaving from Terminal 5 at Arlanda Airport. If you arrive at another terminal, please take the free express train 'Arlanda Express' to get to Terminal 5. Make sure to get off the train at Terminal 5 or it will take you all the way to the city centre and you will be charged around 35 euro!
Arrival Service at Studenthuset 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
We recommend that you get on the Arrival Shuttle Bus to campus for a free ride to Stockholm University’s main campus (30 to 45 minutes depending on traffic). The main campus is called the Frescati campus and Studenthuset is located there. In Studenthuset you will find the Infocenter reception where you can get help to generate your One time code. You will also get to meet the Stockholm University Student Union and join them for a 'Welcome fika'.
Key pick-up 10:00 am to 9:00 pm
If you have received accommodation from the Housing Office at Stockholm University, please note that the keys will be handed out from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm on 19 January, at Studenthuset on the main campus (Frescati).
Students arriving at a later date should pick up their accommodation keys at Servicecenter Södra, located in Södra Huset, Entrance D, Floor 4 on the Frescati campus. Servicecenter Södra is open from Monday to Friday between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm.
