At the bottom of this page, you will find the online arrival form available between the following dates

There will be two bus fairs available during the arrival day (one at 13:00 o´clock and one at 19:00 o´clock), and information on departure time of these will be specified in the arrival information sent to all students prior to Arrival day.
Arrival outside office hours on Arrival Day
Students arriving later than departure of the last bus fare to the airports or the central station in Gothenburg on the arrival day, will have to arrange for their own transportation to Trollhättan. If there are student ambassadors available, they can meet you at the train station. Otherwise you have to arrange for an overnight stay.
Here is a list of some of the hostels and hotels in Trollhättan:

Arrival on other dates than the arrival day
As from the day after Arrival Day, there will be student ambassadors available at the university at two times during the day - 12:15 and 16:15 - who can help arriving students to their accommodation. You have to pick up the keys and contract for the accommodation at the student Service center at University West by yourself. The student ambassadors will help you to access your accommodation. If you plan to arrive during the weekend, we cannot guarantee this arrangement and in that case you might have to book a hostel or hotel (see links above) until the next workingday.
University provides these services during the first two weeks of the semester.
Please note that should you arrive later than two weeks after the start of the semester, you have to pick up the keys and contract directly from Eidar Center at Lantmannavägen 92.
