We recommend that students who has not yet found housing to book a few nights at a hostel or hotel before arriving. This goes especially for those arriving in Linköping after 5 pm Monday to Friday or in the weekend as you won't be able to buy a ticket to our emergency housing after office hours (only open at the start of the autumn term).
You can find a brief guide with regards to price and distance from the campuses here.
At hotels.com you can sometimes get hotel rooms at a much reduced price.
There is a commuter service to the hostels outside Norrköping and Linköping. Check the commuter train or bus services at Östgötatrafiken! Most of these pages are in Swedish, but you can use translate.google.com or Google Chrome to get assistance with translating. It is not always a perfect translation but it can get you an idea bus stops etc or find contact information if you require additional help.
