Most students arrive by flying to Arlanda airport, a 20-minute train ride from Stockholm with Arlanda Express. You can also fly to Bromma or Skavsta airports, or come by train to Stockholm Central Station. The School's Kräftriket campus is easy to reach with public transportation; buses 70, 670, 676 stop at Albano, right next to Kräftriket. You can also take the subway (red line) to Stockholm University 'Universitetet' stop and walk to Kräftriket, roughly a ten-minute walk. Public Transport - SL

Students studying at least 75% (22.5 ECTS credits per semester) can buy a student travel card for public transportation, valid for either 30 or 90 days. These cards can be bought at SL ticket offices as well as from the ticket machines found at subway stations and from many newsstands. You can read more about the rules for travelcards from SL, Stockholm Public Transport. 

A valid student ID card from Stockholm University (or another Swedish university) is required for use of a student travel card, when you arrive it can be a good idea to buy a weekly pass or a three-ay pass when you first arrive. These can also be bought at SL ticket offices, the ticket windows at subway stations, and many newsstands.

Buddy program

The Business Student Association (Föreningen Ekonomerna) organise a buddy program called Fadderiet at the start of every semester which matches up international and Swedish students for a variety of social events, including dinners, sightseeing, an international cruise, and more. This is a great way for exchange students to get to know Swedish students and the city of Stockholm. The events are generally well-perceived and sometimes there are only a limited number of spots available, so be sure tor egister for each event as soon as possible. More information about the Buddy program will be sent to you closer to the time of your arrival.
