 DESCRIPTION OF TOWN

- SHORT HISTORY AND LOCATION

Written reference to Linköping was made as early as 1120 A.C. when the city was an Episcopal see. The building of a cathedral
began in 1230. Four centuries later, one of Sweden’s first pre-university schools was founded. Contemporary Linköping continues its
tradition as a set of learning through a modern university founded in the sixties. Linköping is the 5th largest city in Sweden with
approximately 136.000 inhabitants. Linköping is situated in southern Sweden, 200 kilometres south of Stockholm. Despite its
growth, Linköping has retained a small-town charm. An excellent network of bicycle paths makes it easy to get around, which is a
great advantage for the students (only 15 minutes by bike from the main campus to the city centre).


- MAIN LOCAL/CULTURAL EVENTS

The City of Linköping offers visitors and inhabitants beauty, excitement and other great experiences. We have a living, well-
preserved city centre with many shops, cafés, restaurants and dance halls. Film, theatre, music and exhibitions can be enjoyed all
round the year. Not forgetting the student orchestra festival! the world famous Old Linköping with Valla Recreation Area, the Air
Force Museum, the County Museum, Cloetta Center, Cathedral, sports grounds. Several old castles round the city are well-known
sights for excursions with activities. The Göta Canal, which runs into Lake Roxen, and the Kinda Canal down by the Kinda lakes
are an experience, with many old locks and fine surroundings - for tourists on land as well. On the outskirts there are hypermarkets
that are visited from far and near - IKEA, among others.

- HOW TO REACH TOWN (LINKS FROM THE NEAREST AIRPORT, TRAIN OR COACH STATIONS)

There are many ways to reach Linköping. The city can be reached by train, flight, bus as well as by car. Flying to Stockholm or
Copenhagen and taking to train/bus to Linköping is one of the options. The local airports in Linköping and in Norrköping have
regular flight connections to domestic and international destinations. A low fair airline operating in Nyköping/Skavsta airport flies
regularly to many European cities. The Nyköping/Skavsta airport is approximately situated 100 km north from Linköping and a
regular bus service connects Linköping and the airport. Long distance busses from all over Europe arrive at Linköping Central
Station.

- TRANSPORT IN TOWN (BRIEF INFORMATION ON THE MAIN MEANS OF TRANSPORT AVAILABLE)

An extensive local bus network connects the city. Local buses connect the campus to different city areas. The most convenient
transport is the bicycle. Since the university is very close to the students’ accommodation, it takes only 10 minutes to walk and 5
minutes to bike to the university.

Linköping University, also called LiU, has 26 000 undergraduate students, 1 400 research students and 3 000 employees. It is
Sweden’s fifth largest university and ranks second in engineering and natural sciences enrolments. In only three decades, LiU has
become internationally renown for its innovative education spirit and for its stated ambition to foster cross-disciplinary cooperation.
From the start, the university was organised along multidisciplinary lines. A thematic approach to arts and science research has given
rise to many interdisciplinary study programmes, which were later taken up by other universities. Students come from all over the
world to study the programmes taught in Swedish and in English. Approximately 1500 international students attend Linköping
University each year among which approximately 800 are exchange students.




   ACCOMMODATION
- SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE ACCOMMODATION OFFERED (HOTEL, APARTMENTS, STUDENT HALLS, OTHERS; IF THERE ARE
COOKING FACILITIES) AND ON THE RENT TO BE PAID PER WEEK

In Linköping, most students live in student housing areas situated within cycling distance of the campus.
Many students live in co-ed dormitories, which are organised in corridor groups. Each corridor consists of eight student rooms with
bathrooms, a shared living room and a shared kitchen. Laundry facilities are available in each building. Each student room is
furnished with a bed, a desk, bookshelves and chairs. Students furnish their own bedding. The rent for a dormitory room is around
2,500 sek per month, paid in advance. Electricity and heating are included in the rent.
Students can apply for accommodation through the university. Since the number of student rooms offered by the university is
limited, students are advised to apply for corridor rooms directly to the student housing companies (Studentbostader, Byggvesta or
Graflunds). Hostel rooms are also available at a fair cost.
