Reception 2024

Welcome New Students!

We are very excited to welcome you into our university and student community at KTH Kista! Hopefully, this will mark the beginning of a new chapter of your journey filled with fun, growth, discovery and opportunities. Now, as a diverse part of the student union here at KTH, we understand that transitioning to a new environment, especially in a foreign country, can be both exhilarating and challenging. That is why we are here to ensure that the start of your university experience is memorable and enriching.


The first day of the reception is mandatory, the 12th of August, 2024 at 10:00am. Other events are optional, although we strongly recommend to join them if circumstances allow. For more information you can write to


The reception will be held at KTH Kista which is located at Kistagången 16. There are multiple transportation options available. You can travel by bus or subway to Kista Galleria which is just a short distance away. If you prefer to travel by train, Helenelunds Station is the closest, located about a 10 minute walk away from KTH Kista.


The reception consists of three weeks of unforgettable activities and events where you will get to know your study peers and older students who will guide you through the basics. The reception is a great opportunity to begin your social network and get some insight into your future studies from people that have been in your shoes.

Once again, congratulations on your acceptance, and we cannot wait to see all that you will accomplish during your time here at KTH!
