Student Health Center
The Student Health Center (Akademihälsan) helps students with the treatment of health problems originating in or aggravated by the study situation. It is a complement to the public health care system for students and it provides individual counselling, physiotherapy, general and psychiatric help. Booking an appointment is free of charge and English-speaking counselors are available.
Support for students with special needs
Chalmers offers support for students with special needs, i.e. physical, psychological, neuropsychiatric or dyslexia. The support is planned individually together with the coordinator for students with special needs and includes services such as extended time at written exams, support with note taking, alternative examination forms, recorded literature, mentorship, special software programs etc.
Chalmers offers various kinds of study support for students, regardless of the programme followed. You can get help with math, Swedish language, English grammar, writing a report/ thesis, preparing an oral presentation and more.
All students at Chalmers have access to wireless internet everywhere on campus. We offer both infrastructure and software so that students should be able to use their own laptops. For students who do not own a computer we offer access to more than 1000 computers on our two campuses.
During the first week at Chalmers all new students will receive a unique user identity (Chalmers ID) that provides access to the Chalmers IT resources. Chalmers supplies students with some software to be used in their studies. This software can be found on the computers in the computer labs but many of the programs can also be installed on students’ own computers.
