Welcome Package - New in Kalmar

In collaboration with Kalmar Municipality, Linnékåren offers you a welcome package when you register as a resident in Kalmar! If you register as a resident in Kalmar Municipality, you will receive a welcome package with gift cards for the commercial district of Kalmar. 

In connection with the welcome package, we also donate 100 SEK to a student association of your choice. The project aims to give all new students an idea of what Kalmar has to offer. Läs mer om vad Kalmar har att erbjuda som studentstad!

When you move to a new place, it's important to change your address and register with the local authorities in the new municipality. Making a change of address notification through the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) is free of charge. According to the Population Registration Act (1991:481), a person is obligated to register at the location where they spend their daily rest. This means that, as a student, you should register at the address where you live and study. If you have a family (spouse/partner/cohabiting partner/resident child) living in another place, you may not always need to change your registered address. However, you should not be registered with your parents once you have moved.

How to apply

Register within Kalmar municipality by submitting a free change of address notification to the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket). For more information, please visit Swedish tax agencies webpage. In connection with this, sign up for "Ny i Kalmar" (New in Kalmar) using the e-form below. Once you have been verified and approved, we will contact you, and you can then pick up your welcome package at Linnékåren's office at House Stella, Norra Kajplan 2

Please remember that it may take several weeks before you receive an email with the result of your application. The email might end up in your spam-inbox so please look there as well. If you haven't heard anything within 2 months, then please contact us. 

NOTE! We do not accept any applications retroactively, so it is important that you make your application right after you register yourself in Kalmar municipality.

  • You need to be a registered citizen of Kalmar municipality with an official personal number (no T-number).
