Accommodation in Växjö
All exchange students are guaranteed accommodation on the condition that the accommodation section of the online exchange application is completed prior to the relevant deadline. Please be aware that we cannot provide you with your address prior to arrival!
Accommodation in Växjö is provided in two areas of the city, on campus and in the city centre. You are not able to reserve housing in a specific area on your application.
Rooms and apartments are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. This means that those students who submit their complete applications early will be placed first.
Insure your dorm room and your belongings
You should ensure that you purchase insurance cover prior to arriving in Sweden, covering your dorm room and its content against theft and damage.
The majority of dorm rooms and apartments have an Internet connection and there is always the possibility of using the university computer labs or your own laptop on campus.
Students are offered different types of accommodation possibilties:
- shared apartment
- private apartment
- private dorm room with private bathroom
There are a few less expensive rooms as well as a few which are more expensive.
Sharing an apartment
Shared apartments available to exchange students are studio (one-room) apartments shared by two students. This is the most common alternative. Please note that dorm rooms cannot be shared with another student.
All apartments are located in our newest residence buildings and include a private kitchenette and bathroom. The library, classrooms, computer labs, and the student pub are all a couple of minutes away by foot. Sharing an apartment is a chance to live on campus, and a good way to get to know a fellow exchange student well. It is also the least expensive accommodation alternative.
