Kalasmottagningen is Linköpings University's contribution to the welcome ceremony of the new students and will take place in SAAB Arena the 6th of september! 8000 visiting students, an association and business fair, and it all ends with a concert by a great Swedish artist and an outdoor area filled with joy and celebration.
Kalasmottagningen can be divided into 3 main parts - the student life, the region Östergötland and a memorable welcome to all new students at Linköping University. Kalasmottagningen is a collaboration between the municipality of Linköping and Norrköpings, and Linköping University.
The student life at Linköping University is mainly based on the student associations. All the associations contributes to make your time as a student at Linköping University as good and funs as possible. At Kalasmottagningen we have a fair with all these associations and you will get the chance to meet them and maybe even join one or two! The student association fair is called Föreningsmässan in Swedish.
To give you the opportunity to get to know the city in a quick and easy way, KALAS has gathered some of the local companies. Take your chance to learn more about the possibilities for work in Östergötland! The company fair is called Företagsmässan in Swedish.
