Many international students rent a room through LU Accommodation. If you have been offered a room and have moved in, there are some things that are important for you to know:
The maximum rental period is until the end of the academic year. If you have a contract for the first rental period (the autumn semester) you will automatically receive information on how to extend the contract for the spring semester. However, if you arrive for the spring semester, you will not be offered an extension for the autumn semester, as the Swedish academic year ends in June.
Rent is paid monthly or for an entire semester in advance. The invoice with the exact due amount for each month will be available online when you log in to your account in the LU Accommodation booking system.
You are not allowed to sub-let your room or have other people living with you in the room. The room is only for the person(s) named on the contract. Failure to follow these rules will cause you contract to be cancelled.
LU Accommodation cannot offer any storage facilities. If you need additional storage for your belongings, please contact a private storage company.
Unfortunately, we cannot make any room changes. If you are unhappy with your room, you can cancel the contract with one calendar month’s notice.
Finding housing in a small student town like Lund can sometimes be difficult, particularly in the autumn when many new students arrive. Sometimes your best option is to find a temporary solution and to continue looking for other housing options once you have settled and have a better idea of where you would like to live.
There are several accommodation agencies that may be able to help you to find new housing options.
If you applied for a room through LU Accommodation when you arrived but were not successful in getting a room, you can apply again for the next semester. Please contact the LU Accommodation. However, new students arriving are given priority over students re-applying for a second semester.
