Within walking distance of campus there are libraries, theatres, cinemas, sports centres, parks, museums, gyms, hotels, restaurants, bars, cafés, shopping strips and even a three-kilometre long beach. There are also plenty of sports activities to engage in not to mention the fact that the local hockey team, HV71, is currently best in Sweden, having won the 2010 Swedish National Hockey League Championship!
