Vi arrangerar Välkomstmässan i Växjö en gång varje terminsstart, och Välkomstmässan i Kalmar i början av höstterminen. Syftet är att du som student ska lära känna studentlivet, din nya studentstad samt det utbud som företag, föreningar och myndigheter erbjuder.
The fairs are very popular both with the exhibitors and the students. Usually we have about 3000-5000 students visiting, new students as well as current ones. The number of exhibitors is about 45 in Kalmar and 70-90 in Växjö.
More about the fairs will be posted on the page Ongoing closer to the start of the semester.

In both cities there are Facebook groups targeted at all students as well as specifically for international students. Here you can get information about everything related to the student life.
Unfortunately, the pandemic cancelled our popular welcome fairs where you as a new or old student can discover your student city. Instead, this year we have let companies, authorities, associations, the university and student associations record films where they explain what they have to offer and how you as a student can take advantage of offers or get involved.
