Host University for Växjö / Kalmar, Sweden

On campus, you'll find group study rooms, computer study desks, computer labs, quiet study rooms, and cafes.

Linnaeus University, the second largest university in southern Sweden, has an enrollment of approximately 35,000 Swedish and international students from over 60 countries studying at the two campuses. Although the majority of courses at the university are taught in Swedish, there are many courses in a wide range of fields taught in English which are open to USAC students.

The university has two campuses. One is a central campus situated south of the Växjö town center in a park-like setting, five kilometers from the city center and close to a historic country house, Teleborgs Slott. Everything one might need is located on campus in Växjö. The other campus is located in Kalmar, on the Baltic coast. The Kalmar campus facilities are integrated into the town, rather than being on a centralized campus, but everything is within biking distance. Their proximity to the sea is reflected in an emphasis in nautical science, marine biology, and international commerce. Orientation is held separately at each campus.

Although the majority of courses at the university are taught in Swedish, there are many courses in a wide range of fields taught in English—the majority of which are offered in Växjö—which are open to USAC students. The university offers a wide variety of services for students that includes: 24/7 access to computer labs, a copy and printing center, student welfare office, an on-campus chapel, and library that houses a European Documentation Center.
