Welcome all international students!

All incoming international students are welcome to contact or visit the International Desk for assistance regarding practical matters.

The International Desk can be found in the student reception, located on the ground floor on Stora Algatan 4.

The International Desk is part of the Student Experience and Mobility Team and External Relations at Lund University. It is an open reception and meeting point for you during your time here in Lund. You are welcome to contact the International Desk with all sorts of non-academic issues throughout the semester. All questions are welcome: everything from how to find your department to where you can buy a bike.
