August is all about the new students that start their studies at KTH. As the Swedish students who are starting into their Bachelor programmes have also started with their Receptions, the campus got very lively during the past week. And on Sunday, 22nd August, we will have our second Arrival Day! Not sure what you can expect? Then you should read this post!
1. Arrival at Arlanda or T-Centralen (main station)
There will be student guides welcoming you at Arlanda airport at Terminal 5 between 09.00 and 21.00. You can also use the bus transfer service offered by KTH which runs every hour starting from 09.00 in the morning. If you’re arriving by train at the main station, you’ll also find KTH staff greeting you at the station between 12.00 and 22.00.
2. KTH Entré
When exiting the metro station and walking straight into the direction of KTH campus, you’ll also see a building with the sign “KTH Entré” – open on the Arrival Day from 10.00 to 22.00. Here you’ll be able to:
- Store your luggage while exploring the campus
- Sign your housing contract and get the keys to your accommodation
- Get your KTH IT-account ready for use
- Receive your access card
3. THS International Reception
Are you ready for your first Fika (a short break during any time of the day often combined with a coffee and a cinnamon bun)? You’ll be able to meet student representatives from the THS International Reception and talk to them about student life at KTH and how to get involved while enjoying your first Swedish Fika.
