Type of housing: corridor student room

If returning, I would choose: Corridor room
Why? Great for meeting people, very good facilities and good value
Personal comments:
Although for some students it can be hard to find accomodation straight away due to the high demand, the conditions are excellent. There is a good atmosphere in the corridors and it is a good way to make friends. The rooms are also well furnished and spacious.

downtown, Steve's coffee, Nationarnahaus or plata (especially on thursdays). Sweden is a beautiful country, so everything has to be seen especially the polar cercle in winter. It's also good idea to go to Copenhagen.

FINAL COMMENTS

I had a lot of fun, met new people. Swedish people are very friendly, but I was not easy to find good friends amoung Swedes because the erasmus network is very big, and a lot of exchange students are always together. Well it is up to you, I am improving my swedish everyday and I am trying to find a balance between beeing with erasmus students and with the Swedish students. To finish, I really recommand to go abroad, and Linkoping is a very good choice, I feel like a real student :-) so don t hesitate, just do it, you won t regret it, and if you do I will take the responsablity.
