Welcome Package - New in Växjö
In cooperation with Växjö Municipality, Linnaeus Union offers you a welcome package when you register as a resident in Växjö! If you register yourself as a resident in Växjö Municipality you receive a welcome package including a gift card to Växjö City and a travel fund to Länstrafiken Kronoberg's app.
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 Växjö has to offer. Read more about what Växjö has to offer!
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 Växjö municipality by submitting a free change of address notification to the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket).
