Below you will find information in regards to how you as an international student are covered while studying at Lund University.
Incoming students to Lund University are covered by the ‘Student IN’ or ‘FAS+’ insurance through the state insurance agency Kammarkollegiet.
The term ‘incoming students’ is used to describe students who have moved to Sweden in order to study and have their long term home address in a country other than Sweden.
Please read more about insurance on the website of Lund University:

Other incoming guests, staff and interns with no Swedish personal number from the Tax Office are covered by 'Insurance for foreign visitors' (formerly GIF) through Kammarkollegiet. Please read more about that via the link below:
- (link, new tab) Insurance for international staff
The insurance offered by ‘Student IN’, ‘FAS+’ and ' Insurance for foreign visitors ' has a property cover as well as a liability cover. The property and liability cover in this insurance can be equated to a home insurance policy issued by a private insurance company.
Incoming students and others that are covered by ‘Student IN’, ‘FAS+’ and 'Insurance for foreign visitors' through Kammarkollegiet that have a housing contract with LU Accommodation do not therefore need to obtain a separate home insurance through a private insurance company in Sweden.
Personal injury insurance
All students at Lund University, including non-incoming students are also covered by a personal injury insurance:

Please note, that this insurance does not have a property or liability cover. Non-incoming students are therefore recommended to obtain a home insurance policy through a private home insurance company independently.
