Poetry and freedom of speech

The Linköping University Readers’ Circle ends the year with a meeting with Housam Al-Mosilli, poet and journalist from Syria.

Giveaways galore when Origo empties

Återbruket is the LiU service that offers furniture and other items for reuse free of charge within the university. It has only been in operation since April this year, but has already found new homes for more than 1,100 items. And a great opportunity for anyone looking for a real bargain is coming soon, when the Origo Building is emptied of all it contains.
