Name: Justiina Ekblom
Lives in: A one-room apartment in Fjärilen
Justiina is in her second year of a Master's degree in International and European Relations and by now has got to know Linköping well.
Why did you choose Fjärilen?
"I've rented from other landlords in Linköping and I've also tried corridor life, but I felt like I wanted my own space. I've always thought Fjärilen was a good area, so I applied for and got my current apartment in summer 2013."
How would you describe Fjärilen to someone who has never been here?
"I'd say it's in a great location, close to the Campus and the city centre. It's a typical student residence really, but a bit quieter and calmer than the student residences in Ryd, for example."
What's the best thing about your apartment?
"The best thing about the apartment is that it's an apartment. It feels really good to move away from living on a corridor as I come to the end of my studies. I may only have one room plus a kitchen and a bathroom, but the layout means you can use the wardrobes as a screen to make a bed alcove. That way, I don't end up sitting on the bed all the time."
