LU Accommodation

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.

LU Accommodation is mainly a service for international exchange and degree-seeking students. LU Accommodation will do their best to help you, but as there is a great demand for housing in Lund, they are not able to guarantee housing for all international students.

Visit LU Accommodation's website for details on when and how to apply, housing areas and important rental information

Students with housing guarantee

Some international students who are admitted to Lund University have a housing guarantee. The housing guarantee means that we will offer your housing at one of LU Accommodation's housing options. In general, the following student groups have a housing guarantee:

  • Non-EU/EEA students (required to pay tuition fees to Lund University) admitted to full-time studies of at least 30 ECTS (does generally not apply to exchange students from partner universities)
  • Students coming to Lund on a Linnaeus-Palme scholarship
  • Students from the University of California coming to Lund on the bilateral exchange agreement

Visit LU Accommodation's website to learn more about the terms and conditions of the housing guarantee

When you apply with LU Accommodation, you will be able to state your housing preferences. Some room types and housing areas are more requested than others; therefore, there is no guarantee that you will be offered the specific housing option of your choice. Note that if you want to receive a housing offer from LU Accommodation, you must apply for housing, even if you have a housing guarantee.

Students without housing guarantee

Students who are not guaranteed housing may also apply for housing through LU Accommodation. You will receive information from your coordinator on when and how to apply. LU Accommodation will do their best to help you, but we cannot guarantee that you will get housing through LU Accommodation and it is your own responsibility to find housing. For other housing options, please check the accommodation agencies.
