Program Summary & Location
UW-Eau Claire has a long standing partnership with Linnaeus University (LNU) in Sweden. Students who participate in this exchange will take courses in English with students from all over the world. Linnaeus University is a modern university with 35,000 students, and is the sixth largest university in Sweden.
Students have the option to study at either LNU location,Växjö or Kalmar. Students will have to select which campus they prefer as courses can only be taken at one campus.
Växjö (population 80,000) is the capital of Kronoberg in southeastern Sweden, 120 miles southwest of Stockholm. The heart of the traditional Swedish province of Småland, declared as the "Greenest City in Europe" is known for its forests, lakes, and unspoiled nature. Växjö was an important trading center as early as the 8th century, and its royal charter dates back to the 14th century.
Kalmar (population 36,000) is located on the Baltic Sea and is the capital of Kalmar County. Kalmar is surrounded by water and the city center is on its own island. Today Kalmar is a modern city, but anywhere you go, you still see the history.

Housing & Meals
Your housing is arranged by Linnaeus University in a residence hall or off-campus apartment. Residence halls have single rooms with private bathrooms and shared kitchen facilities. You'll cook your own meals in the kitchens or eat at one of several campus cafeterias or local restaurants.
Kalmar's residence halls will be sprinkled throughout the city, as campus buildings are throughout the city. Students are able to bike, walk or take public transportation to where their classes are held. In Växjö, housing is located close to campus and is usually a 5-10 minute walk.
