KubbSocial activities

LiU Student Hosts always take good care of our Summer Academy students and organise different kinds of social activities.

On 29 June there will be an official Welcome Reception and information session, and on 24 July a Farewell Reception will be held in the early evening. 

In between studies there are many fun activities awaiting the LiU Summer Academy students:



  • An excursion to Stockholm (participation at student's own expense)
    To mention some of the activities in Stockholm, besides overnight stay at a cozy hostel and a boat trip in the beautiful archipelago, we visit Skansen - a fabulous Open Air museum. Date: 11-12 July. Price: 1300 SEK/person including transportation, accommodation, entrance ticket to Skansen and a boat trip with lunch.
  • A day tour to picturesque town Vadstena by the lake Vättern and the beautiful and historic surroundings as well as a visit to Naturum Tåkern, an astonishing bird wildlife preserve. (Participation at student's own expense). Date: 4 July.
    Price: 260 SEK/person including transportation and a guided tour in Vadstena. 



YogaThe Swedes enjoy doing their regular exercise, whether it´s soccer, floor ball or cross-country skiing. According to the Eurobarometer the Swedes exercise most of all Europeans, with 7/10 of the population on a regular exercise program.

As a part of the accommodation package all Summer Academy students can take part of this Swedish custom, as a 30-day card from the gym Campushallen is included (situated at Campus Valla). They offer everything from indoor cycle, yoga and bodypump to volleyball and badminton.  Please find more information on their website: https://www.campushallen.se/en

The student hosts will take the Summer Academy students on an introduction tour to Campushallen and also arrange some activities in one of the bigger training halls.

Make sure you take advantage of this great possibility and stay healthy!
