About Kalas

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 Norrköping, and Linköping University. 


The student life at Linköping University is mainly based on the student associations. All the associations contribute to make your time as a student at Linköping University as good and fun 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.

A welcoming event

When you're at Kalasmottagningen, you're not only on the brink of a new life - but a new life filled with knowledge, joy, wisdom and friends. Kalasmottagningen is a big welcoming event of Linköping University and the beginning of your new life as a student! 

Kalasmottagningen takes place September 6th at SAAB Arena. We open at 14.00 and close at 01.00. The day starts with the two fairs with student associations and the local companies. At 15.00 the outside area opens, offering food, drinks and music. As the finale we will give the stage to the artist! The night will thereafter continue at the outside area until 01.00.

Welcome to Kalasmottagningen and Linköping University! See you there on the 6th of september.
