Studying with a disability
Karolinska Institutet aims to be accessible to students with disabilities and to provide these students with the same opportunities to carry out their studies as all other students. It is important that you contact the Coordinator for Students with Disabilities, Tina Teljstedt, as soon as possible after your acceptance to our university.
Student Health Centre
As a student at Karolinska Institutet, you are welcome to visit the university's Student Health Centre (Studenthälsan). The aim of the Student Health Centre is to promote the physical and mental health of our students and a healthy student social environment. It does not replace the primary healthcare clinic where conventional healthcare is provided, but acts as a complement to it.
Each educational programme that is given at Karolinska Institutet has a programme study adviser that is assigned to aid students in that particular programme.
There are also general study advisers to turn to for prospective students. Find out more on the link below.

University library and Information desk
The Karolinska Institutet University Library is the largest medical library in the Nordic region. It houses international medical and scientific information in journals and books, in both print and electronic format, and supplies access to a number of biomedical and other relevant databases. A limited number of course literature books are also available.
The library consists of two service units, one on each campus, and a network of computerised services. Both service units of the library provide study rooms and areas for individual and group study. The library also offers comprehensive educational activities for students, researchers and external customers.
The information desk is the service point for students on campus. In Huddinge it is located in the University Library (Alfred Nobels allé 8) and in Solna at Berzelius väg 3 (popularly known as BZ). The service point can issue KI cards that give you access to computer rooms, gym and can be used as library cards. The service points also provide students with extracts and certificates from Ladok (register of student records), copy cards and printing accounts for the computer rooms.
