Karlstad - The Student cityKarlstad has enjoyed the reputation of being a friendly and hospitable city for a long time. With the proverbial sun and an expanding and innovative university, Karlstad now ranks as one of the best student cities in Sweden.
Every tenth person in Karlstad is a university student. You can tell. In a short time Karlstad has transformed from an ordinary city into a student city offering a wide range of culture, entertainment, sports and shopping. Students say that it is a very relaxed place to be a student in. A small city with the attractions of a big city.
The City of Karlstad likes its students. Just as the University, Karlstad wants to grow and advance into the future. This is why it is important for the city to take good care of the young people who come here to study. The autumn semester starts with a welcome party for all new students. The City of Karlstad and the University invite new students to an evening with dancing and good concerts for free.
There wasn't always a university in Karlstad. Fact is, we became a university in 1999. But there is a long tradition of higher education in Karlstad. There's been teacher education here since 1843, and it goes on to this day.
