If you live outside of Stockholm
As a student on one of the university's distance learning courses you can have books sent to your home, free of charge, on the condition that you live in Sweden, but outside of Stockholm, and have a post code not beginning with "1". This is not valid if you're taking a course that has been converted to distance learning, due to Covid-19.
