Transportation service on the Arrival Day
There will be two bus fairs available during the arrival day (one at 13:00 o´clock and one at 18:00 o´clock), and information on departure time of these will be specified in the arrival information sent to all students during the week 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 representatives 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:
STF Trollhättan/Gula Villan Hostel
Arrival on other dates than the arrival day
As from the day after arrival day, at two times during the day - 12:15 and 16:15 - there will be student representatives available at the university to help arriving students get to their accommodation. Students have to pick up keys and contract for their accommodation at Service Center at University West by themselves. The student representatives 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 working day.
University West 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.
