LU Accommodation is part of Student Services at Lund University and offers housing for international students. LU Accommodation manages a limited number of rooms and flats in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. There is a great demand for housing and unfortunately we are not able to guarantee housing for all international students.
LU Accommodation is mainly a service for international exchange and degree-seeking students. PhD students and international guests can normally not receive housing through LU Accommodation and should contact their department for help and advise regarding housing.
Please note that the flats are normally reserved for couples where both applicants have been accepted for studies at Lund University. Unfortunately we are unable to offer family accommodation.
Important rental information
Rooms offered by LU Accommodation are rented for either the autumn semester or the spring semester, or both.
Autumn semester: The contract period for the autumn semester is 15 August to 31 December 2014. During the autumn semester you will be offered the possibility to extend your contract for the month of January or further.
Spring semester: The contract period for the spring semester is beginning of January to 15 June 2015. During the spring semester you will be offered the possibility to extend your contract for the summer.
If you are staying longer than to the end of the academic year, it is very important that you register with AF Bostäder as soon as possible to get on their waiting list for accommodation for when you have to leave your LU Accommodation room.
There is however an exception for non EU/EEA students who are required to pay tuition fees and who are admitted to full-time studies of at least 30 ECTS. These students have a housing guarantee for the normal duration of the study programme (1-3 years). Please note that you also pay rent during the summer months in most housing areas.
The rent varies depending on the area and the type of room, but is currently set at between SEK 14 000 and SEK 23 000 for the autumn semester (15 August until 31 December 2014). This includes electricity, water, heating and use of kitchen and laundry facilities. Students sharing a corridor often agree on a corridor fee of about SEK 200 per month for common supplies. In addition to your rent, you will also have to pay a fixed deposit when you accept your housing contract prior to your arrival and it will be refunded after you have moved out.
