Apartment Style Living

10 minutes from Campus you have the area called, Brickebacken. Here you will find three-rooms flats with one kitchen and one bathroom. Men and women live in separate flats. You share the kitchen and the bathroom with two students but each student has her/his individual room. The rooms are between 12.8 and 17.2 square metres and designed for one person.

Brickebacken is a close-to-nature area, with trails for walking and cycling. It has its own centre with a food store, service shops and a recreation centre with an indoor pool. The distance from the campus is approx. 2 kilometres, i.e. 20 minutes on foot and 10 minutes by bike. The buses go every ten minutes during day-time to/from Brickebacken.

The rooms contain the following basic furniture: bed, bedside table, desk, chair, armchair, bookshelf and wardrobe. Curtains, blinds and carpets are not included.

The beds are 90 centimetres wide and 200 centimetres long and have a mattress. You will have to arrange for your own pillow, quilt, towels, bed-linen and clothes hangers.

In the kitchen each student has his/her own cupboard and a shelf in the refrigerator and the freezer. The kitchen is also equipped with a cooker and an oven and sometimes a microwave oven. It may be necessary for you to buy your own kitchen equipment, but in some apartments there is kitchen equipment that you may use.
