Study in Halmstad and Sweden

We prefer to not invent the wheel again and since Halmstad Univeristy already have put together a very good information site regarding studying in Halmstad we will just guide you to it.

Freshers week

The Nollning will be held on 17 - 26 August. You will be contacted by students who will guide you thru your first week at the univeristy who will explain more what nollning means. Until then you can read more about the Freshers Week (Nollning) here

Campus map

We know that it can be difficult to find on campus at first. On the university's website, you will find Mazemap, which is an interactive campus map that can be good to look at beforehand. You can also download Mazemap as an app and use it to book group rooms during the study period. If you still find it difficult to find you way, you can always run past the Student Union's reception in the glass corridor and we will guide you to the right place!

Get involved

During your studies, there are several ways to get involved. Among other things through us in the student union or within your own program. Here you will find more information about union involvement and contact list (in Swedish) for the program associations. Your program association can also help answer questions about your program more specifically.

Mecenat card

Your patronage card will be sent digitally to the email address you used when you applied for your education. In order to achieve the criteria for obtaining a patronage card, you must insure your studies yourself and then the university must do the same. You will receive help with this during the first days on site in Halmstad. As a student union member, you get your mecentat card 15 days for everyone else!


When you need different types of student support, you can turn to Studieverkstaden. Here you can, among other things, get help with your study techniques, how you can improve your academic texts and tips on how you can do to succeed with the distance studies.

Ombud for Students- and Phd students

It can feel safe to know that the Student Union has a student representative if something during your studies would not feel completely good. The representative's task is to assist you as a student at Halmstad University with advice and support in matters concerning your rights as a student.
