Arriving in Sweden
An Orientation Programme is arranged prior to each term start and provides students with information about all kinds of facilities and activities they need in order to make the most of their stay in Uppsala or Visby.
Try to plan to arrive during the Arrival Days. If you arrive in Sweden before Arrival Days you need to check with the Uppsala University Housing Office whether it is possible to move in before the date stated on your lease and how you can access student housing by emailing email@example.com. We can not help you with the pick up of your key to your accommodation outside of Arrival Days.
You should plan to arrive before courses start. If you cannot arrive before the beginning of courses, you need to let Uppsala University know. If you are coming through a university-wide exchange agreement, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are coming through a departmental agreement, inform the department directly.
You can not ship luggage or boxes to Uppsala Universit before you arrive. For safety reasons, neither the Unit for International Mobility nor the Uppsala University Housing Office can accept any luggage or packages. You need to be present to accept packages or boxes shipped to your accommodation in Uppsala.
