Accommodation in Kalmar
Exchange students are guaranteed accommodation in Kalmar, provided that the online application is completed and submitted prior to the relevant deadline.
You will be sent a list with various housing options. You should be aware that you are not able to change accommodation during the term. However, if you wish to find your own accommodation, you may terminate your lease, giving at least two months’ notice.
Insure your dorm room and your belongings
You should ensure that you purchase insurance cover prior to arriving in Sweden, as well as insurance covering your dorm room and its content.
Your first monthly rent is paid prior to your arrival. When paying your first rent, you are also required to pay a damage deposit of SEK 2,000. Your deposit will be refunded at the end of your exchange, if your accommodation is returned to the housing provider in the same condition it was let to you, and you have paid all outstanding rent.
When you sign the lease for your room, you will also receive your first rent invoice. The invoice must be paid as soon as possible. The next invoice will be mailed to you at your Swedish address. You can also choose to pay the full term or year’s rent at once; this is arranged once you arrive in Kalmar. If you are late with your payment you will be charged a fee of SEK 160.
Vacating your accommodation and inspection
When you move out, your dorm room should be clean. Once vacated, all rooms are inspected and you will be charged for any extra cleaning or any repairs required.
Where is my accommodation located?
The majority of exchange students are housed centrally in Kalmar. The university will easily be reached by foot, bike or bus.
Computers with internet access can be found both in the library or at your school. Internet access is available in all dorm rooms for a monthly fee of SEK 120. This fee is added to your rent invoice, and has to be paid whether you use the internet service or not. Wireless internet is not provided, meaning you need a cable to access the internet. This can be bought at any electronic store in Sweden or brought with you from home. To activate your internet account, contact the internet provider once you have moved into your dorm room.
