Erika was tipped off about Flamman by her brother, who had already studied at Linköping. According to her, the best thing about this area is the location. And she loves living on a corridor!
Name: Erika Wiman
Lives in: A corridor room in Flamman
Erika Wiman comes from Sundsvall, but has been studying at Linköping since August 2012. Now home is a corridor in the Flamman student area.
So you didn't end up in Flamman by accident?
"No, my brother studied at Linköping so I'd been here to visit a few times. And he also told me he thought this was a good place to live."
Was it difficult to get a room here?
"I was accepted on my course back in 2011, but chose to postpone my studies for year. That meant I'd collected quite a few points with Studentbostäder by the time I was ready to move here. Students from other cities also get priority on corridors, so it was all really easy."
So what's it like living on a corridor?
"I always wanted a corridor room, as I thought it would be good to live with other people, being new to the city. And it's nice always having someone to talk to. The apartment itself, or rather the room, is fine and I have my own toilet and shower. It might all be a tiny bit dated, but I still think this is the best corridor to live on."
What's the best thing about Flamman?
"Definitely the location. Flamman is perfect, halfway between the university and the city, and you can cycle everywhere really quickly. It's actually quite a quiet area, but we do have the student pub Flamman nearby and things can get quite lively when that's open. But being in the ideal place is fantastic!"
