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

The monthly rent for student housing varies (at present) between 1,882 SEK and 3,200 SEK, depending on the type of accommodation. The average monthly rent for student accommodation is approximately 2,800 SEK. Please note that the rent varies from year to year.
Payment of accommodation
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 International Office endeavours 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 International 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.
