Your arrival in Lund
Arriving in Lund on Arrival Day
Most international students arrive in Lund on Arrival Day, about two weeks before the start of the semester. To make your arrival as smooth and welcoming as possible, we have arranged for our international mentors to meet you at Copenhagen Airport and at the railway station in Lund to take you to the Arrival Day venue with the help of a shuttle service. On Arrival Day you will be able to check-in and receive all information you need about life in Lund. LU Accommodation representatives will also be present to make it easy for tenants to collect their keys.
Another reason to come to Lund on Arrival Day is that you will be able to participate in the Orientation Weeks from the start. The Orientation Weeks are filled with activities, fairs, excursions, tours and seminars, and are a great opportunity to join a mentor group and make new friends, see new places and learn more about Sweden and Lund.
If you can’t come on Arrival Day
It is very important that you inform your contact person at Lund University of your arrival date. Your contact person will either be your exchange coordinator or your programme coordinator.
If you have a confirmed room through LU Accommodation, you should also inform them of your arrival date. You will need to go to the LU Accommodation office when you arrive in Lund to pick up your key.
We look forward to seeing you on Arrival Days!
If you have any questions regarding the arrangements on Arrival Day, please contact the International Desk.
There are currently no travel restrictions in place for people entering Sweden from abroad, however, there are recommendations for you to consider. As of 7 January 2023 there is also a new government decision regarding testing requirements for travellers entering Sweden from China. If you are an incoming student from China starting your studies in January 2023, please check official information regarding the test requirements before travelling. Holders of a valid Swedish residence permit are exempt from the testing requirement.
