Students who are starting their studies at Lund University and who do not have a housing guarantee with LU Accommodation are responsible for finding their own accommodation. In addition to applying with LU Accommodation, we encourage you to apply for housing through other external accommodation agencies.
Accommodation agencies for students
For long-term accommodation we recommend that you check with these accommodation agencies:
- AF Bostäder
- Accommodation at the student nations
More information about the agencies is to be found below.
BoPoolen – a student housing website run by Lund University's student unions.
Information about student housing at bopoolen.nu
AF Bostäder – student housing that requires membership in the Academic Society and Studentlund. Sign up for AF Bostäder's housing lottery for newcomers (novischer) before the start of the semester, 9-12 December for all new students starting spring 2023 (please note that if you are admitted for Spring 2023 studies, and apply before 9 December, your application will be invalid). You are required to hold membership in the organisation Studentlund when applying. Studentlund will open for new members in early December.

In addition to these, there are plenty of other accommodation agencies that can help you to find housing in Lund, Malmö, Helsingborg or other locations in the region.
Other accommodation agencies
You can find links to different housing providers on the BoPoolen website. Here you can also find links to short-term accommodation, such as hostels and bed & breakfasts. Please note that many of the websites linked to on BoPoolen are in Swedish. If you contact the agencies via telephone or email they will be able to answer your questions in English, however.
