Accommodation for Exchange Students

Preliminary Reservation

If you have sent in the form "Application for exchange students" and ticked in the box to apply for accommodation, we have made a preliminary reservation for you. After you have received your Letter of Acceptance you must pay a part of the rent in advance. We will not make a definite reservation of accommodation until we have received notice of your payment. Consequently we cannot provide you with the address until you have arrived. Under "Allocation of accommodation" you can see what is considered when we place you in different housing.

Rental period

Your accommodation must be rented for the whole semester (about five months) or the whole academic year (about 10 months).

Autum semester rental period:
August 18, 2014 to January 16, 2015

Spring semester rental period:
January 18, 2015 to June 15, 2015

Whole academic year rental period:
August 18, 2014 to June 15, 2015

The monthly rent for student housing varies (at present) between 3.008 SEK and 3.143 SEK. Please note that the rent varies from year to year.

Payment of accommodation

All students who have applied for accommodation on time will have an invoice sent via email with instructions on how to pay.

Before arrival all students pay 5 month's rent based on the lowest rent available. As most students get a more expensive room, an invoice will be sent out to all students with the remaining rent. The remaining rent has to be paid at the latest on October 31 for students arriving in the autumn semester and at the latest on March 31 for students arriving in the spring semester.

Full year students have to pay the whole rent for the second semester (spring semester) by January 31.

Arriving before rental period

If you arrive before the rental period begins, you must find temporary accommodation on your own.

Allocation of accommodation

The allocation of accommodation is based on the below mentioned criterias:

  • The Housing Office endeavors to create a friendly, international atmosphere, by mixing exchange students of different nationalities with Swedish students. We try to avoid accommodating exchange students of the same nationality together.

  • The Housing Office strives to distribute accommodation in order to use the student rooms in the most effective way.

  • Students with special housing requirements due to disabilities must provide a certificate both from a medical doctor and the home university.
