Social Activities and Buddy Program

Luleå University Reception Committee (LURC) is a student organization responsible for taking care of all exchange students coming to Luleå University of Technology (LTU).

LURC helps them with accommodation and information when they arrive and they arrange social activities and trips throughout the year.



LURC consists of around 10 members, mainly full-time students who are working voluntarily to make all exchange students feel as welcome as possible to LTU.

LURC picks up new exchange students at the airport, train station etc., administer housing, arrange an orientation period, social activities, trips and more throughout the year. LURC also hands out information like maps, bus timetables and how to get around at the university and downtown Luleå.

LURC works closely with the International Office and the Student Unions and have an office next to the International Office.
