A corridor room at Irrblosset was Linn's first choice, since she'd heard so many good things about the area. And so far, she's very happy with where she lives.
Name: Linn Berntsson
Lives in: A corridor room in Irrblosset
Linn Berntsson was very organised and started collecting housing points at several places long before she started studying. The points with Studentbostäder were put to good use when she began applying for accommodation in Linköping.
Did living on a corridor seem like an obvious choice to you?
"Yes, I thought it would be a cool way to get to know people, as I was coming to a new city on my own. Plus it's much cheaper. I also like being able to take a break from studying and head out to the kitchen for a bit of a chat – particularly around exam time, when you're not socialising as much with your other friends."
What did you know about Linköping and Irrblosset before you came here?
"I didn't really know much about Linköping beforehand. I'd only been here on a school visit once, that was all. I really knew nothing about Irrblosset. I read everything on the website, did some Googling and asked around as much as I could. Practically everyone only had good things to say."
Now you've been here a while, has Irrblosset lived up to your expectations?
"Absolutely. The whole corridor is beautifully maintained, and I'm really close to uni. It's a short bike ride through lovely Vallaskogen woods to get to the Campus, and we're just as close to the city too. It's a quiet and pleasant area that has student accommodation, ordinary apartments and family homes. It can sometimes get quite lively in the student residences at weekends, but that can be great fun."
