Being a student, it is obvious that you will be hanging around the campus. There will be other things to spend your time on between your lectures, seminars and group work. Below, you will get a bit of help on what our different campuses have to offer, such as where you can have lunch, withdraw money, and get your course books and so on.
At the AV service, you can borrow computer/video projectors, TV sets, video recorders, video cameras (VHS and DV), DVD players, slide projectors, overhead projectors, sound systems, tape-recorders and digital cameras. They also have copying facilities. You will find the AV service at Building C, entrance 18.
There are two ATMs at Campus Valla. These are located between Zodiaken, in the Zenit building and inside Kårallen. There are no ATMs on the actual campus in Norrköping but, if you follow the Märkesbacken slope leading down to Kungsgatan and turn left, there is one within 100 metres.
If you would like to find course books, read today’s newspaper or surf the net for a couple of hours, you should make your way to our various libraries.

The campus bus
