Welcome to Mälardalen University

Congratulations on your admission! We are very happy to welcome you as a new student here at MDH for the autumn 2018.
On these pages you will find practical information that will help you in your preparations.

1. Reception days

Reception services are offered in the main entrance at campus Västerås during 26-28 August between 14-17. 

As a service for you, we have gathered staff from the accommodation agency Bostad Västerås, together with the Student Union and University staff to meet you when you arrive. During this time you are welcome to pick up your key, sign your housing contract and get more information about Introduction days and social activities. We will then take you (and your often very heavy luggage...) to your accommodation by car.
Please note: If you are arriving outside of the reception days/times you will need to pick up the key at the office for Bostad Västerås in the city center. 
We recommend you to schedule your arrival to one of these days.

2. Introduction days

Mälardalen University also organises introduction days for international students in association with the start of the semester. The introduction days will be held at Campus Västerås.
