Mid Sweden University: Student Life

Mid Sweden University is a multi-campus network university with campuses in the cities of Sundsvall and Östersund. We are one of the ten largest institutions of higher education in Sweden. Although we have two campuses, all of the courses will be offered at the same campus.


Sundsvall is one of the biggest cities in northern Sweden and popular among students. Several times, Sundsvall has been elected the most student-friendly municipality in Sweden. The city is situated by the coast, framed by mountains both in the south and in the north. The city centre is called Stenstan (the stone city) and it is known for its beautiful late 19th century stone houses in Neo-Renaissance style.Östersund was elected the most student-friendly municipality in Sweden in 2018. The city and its surroundings have plenty of recreational activities to offer, such as long distance ice-skating, cross-country skiing and hiking. There are, for instance, more than 10 km of ice-skating and skiing tracks on the lake Storsjön.
