About

History

In 1975 Sweden’s sixth university was founded in Linköping. Since then Linköping University (LiU) has grown considerably, expanding to Norrköping and Stockholm.

Education

Linköping University has four faculties: the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Faculty of Educational Sciences, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Science and Engineering (sometimes known as the Institute of Technology). Formally, Educational Sciences is an “area”, but in most cases it functions as a faculty. In some ceremonial contexts, LiU is considered to have three faculties, with Educational Sciences falling under Arts and Sciences. 

Research

What makes Linköping University special is the lack of boundaries between different subjects and faculties, which has resulted in world-leading research environments and companies. In addition to scientific matters we address issues where the results can benefit all of society.

Services

Housing services

In a nutshell, as part of their tuition fees all fee-paying degree students receive an offer from LiU for a single occupant student room for one year. LiU aims to offer a large percentage of exchange students with a single occupant student room for the duration of they stay at LiU, but due to demand, it is not guaranteed that a room will be offered. All other students need to organise their own accommodation. Since exchange students are not guaranteed a room and fee-paying students on a two-year programme will need to organise accommodation for the second year of their studies – all students should join the queue systems.

Library services

The University Library provides a broad range of high-quality resources for students. There is one library at Campus Valla and one at Campus Norrköping. Besides books and journals, they house computer terminals where students can retrieve information from local catalogues, as well as national and international databases. In order to borrow books and use computers and printers, you need a LiU-card.

ICT services

IT security issues at Linköping University are handled by LiU's Incident Response Team, LiU IRT. LiU IRT is a centrally located function for IT security handing, information and cooperation, and preventative IT security efforts.

Student Life

Campus life

Student Reviews

Change matters
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's been very good studying at Linköping University base on their knowledge transformation and classroom culture, though many things slow down with the coming of covid-19 which gave me a bitter taste of distance studies.

Good level of organization. High level of teaching
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Linköping university presents a good level of organization. Professors are very well prepared and are able to interact with students in a multicultural environment. The campuses' infrastructures are easily accessible and have been constructing in order to facilitate academic teaching, learning, and research.

Constructive Criticism
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My experience so far is one of pride that I have been able to be apart of my university. The dedication and hard work that has been put into my four years so far has allowed me to succeed in many ways, as well as increasing my self-development skills. The university is a great place to study and I would suggest it to anyone.
