Travel and arrival information

Post  Fredrik on July 4th 2009, 16:24

We in LURC will provide an arrival service for you, picking you up at the airport, train station or bus station. To be able to pick you all up we need to know your date of arrival in advance. Please use the arrival form to send us your arrival details and please send them in before the 31st of July for the autumn semester and 31st of December for the spring semester.

If you do not receive any reminder email from us, it means we got your arrival details. Everybody arriving during the arrival week will be picked up at the airport, the train station or the bus station, whenever you arrive.

If you arrive later check the post about late arrival.

If you arrive by plane we will be waiting for you next to where you pick up your luggage. Please come over and say hi while you are waiting for your bags.

If you arrive by train we will be waiting for you on the platform.

If you arrive by bus we will be waiting for you at the bus station.

We will be wearing black t-shirts with our logo on and we will be holding a sign saying "LURC" on it.

After you got your bags we will drive you to Nordkalotten.

At Nordkalotten you will sign your housing agreement, get your keys and lots and lots of information. Don't be afraid if you can't remember everything we say, all the important stuff you will also find in the papers we give you.

If you have arranged different housing on your own we will give you instructions on how to go there by bus, if there is time we will drive you. We will only drive to addresses within the city of Luleå. If you are going elsewhere we will help you to the bus station.

One of the things we will give you is a Swedish SIM-card for your mobile phone. If you bring a mobile from home you can start using it immediately. If your phone is SIM-locked or your phone is incompatible with the Swedish network (GSM 900/1800 or 3G 2100) a new one without a contract costs from 400 SEK.

Problems that can turn up and what to do
Your bags get delayed or lost:  We will help you take care of it at the airport. If they are delayed they usually arrive with the next flight and are sent to you by taxi. We will give them your new address in Luleå. If this happens earlier and you don't have a working number you can give them mine +46 72 539 31 55. If necessary you can also give them the address to the university. Here it is:

your name
c/o International Office
Lulea University of Technology
SE-971 87 Lulea
SWEDEN

Remember that you need to pick up your bags at Stockholm Arlanda Airport and check them in again. Only if you fly Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) or Norwegian and have luggage that was already checked through to Luleå don't you need to pick up your luggage. Alot of other airlines promise your luggage will get checked through to Luleå but this is not correct. At Stockholm Arlanda Airport everybody has to pick up their bags and check them in again unless you fly with same airline all the way. THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT. If you forget, your bags will only arrive with a later flight and you will have to pick them up yourself at the airport.

There is no one to meet you at airport, train station or bus station: Wait until you have received your bags and then a few more minutes. There are a lot of students arriving every day so sometimes we get a little late. If still no one has showed up you should call me. If you don't have a mobile with you find a pay-phone or ask the airport staff for help. So if you have not already, write my number down now!

+46 72 539 31 55

Your flight gets delayed: Send me a SMS text message! The airport is a boring place without people and we read all the welcome brochures last year. Very Happy A call or email will do too.

The LURC person is talking to fast: Tell him/her to slow down

You have a question: Interrupt us anytime and Ask! (They help stop our degradation into parrots.)

Hello Fredrick, I am suppose to come up in Lulea for the month of august for my higher education. I will be coming along with my wife. We will be travelling internationally hence will arrive by air sometime in august.

the question I want to ask is. How much I have to pay for services offered by you in above para and what are the means to pay? If I have to pay when I arrive or earlier will you take payment through credit cards or it is only cash?
