If you have been admitted to a master’s programme at Örebro University, you can apply for accommodation with our Housing Office. Accommodation applied for via the Housing Office is, however, only available to students who wish to live on their own and do not have a Swedish personal identity number.
It is important to begin securing accommodation as soon as you are offered a place at Örebro University. The university offers single occupancy accommodation to students coming from outside the EU/EEA countries and Switzerland, but this is not guaranteed – the sooner you apply and explore all options, the better!
If you have not secured accommodation before your studies begin, you may not be permitted to study here. This also affects your right to reside in Sweden. Therefore, explore all housing options BEFORE travelling to Sweden!
Single occupancy accommodation
Örebro University can offer single occupancy accommodation for students who have been admitted to a master’s programme at the university and who do not already have a Swedish personal number or who is not from within the EU/EEA or Switzerland.
The accommodation is corridor- or apartment-style living in buildings located around campus and suitable for one person only. You can apply for accommodation directly with our Housing Office once you’ve received confirmation of admission. You may apply for either one year or two years, depending on the length of your studies.
Families/groups cannot stay in our single-occupancy accommodation. If you require accommodation for more than one person – with family or friends – you must secure private accommodation yourself for the duration of your studies in Sweden. Read more under "Other housing arrangements" below.
If you are a student from within the EU/EEA or Switzerland and are in need of accommodation, you must make your own housing arrangements. Read more under "Other housing arrangements" below.
If you already have a Swedish personal identity number and are in need of accommodation, you must make your own housing arrangements. Read more under "Other housing arrangements" below.
