The available accommodation format is dorm rooms. The rent is approximately SEK 3,500 per month. You will not be allowed to share these rooms with someone else. Linnaeus University is not able to arrange accommodation for dependents and/or children. If you plan to bring your partner or children you need to apply for housing yourself. The best alternative is to read the information about how to find accommodation on the Student Union (Linnéstudenterna) website, for Växjö press here, for Kalmar press here.
Rooms are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. This means that students who submit their complete accommodation application and pay their tuition fees at an early stage will be assigned accommodation first.
On request by students, we strive to mix students as much as possible. This means that nationality, gender and age are taken into consideration when distributing rooms.
The university does not own any accommodation, instead the housing companies Växjöbostäder/Kalmarhem or other housing companies will provide us with dorm rooms for the students who have followed the instructions and applied before deadline.
Since it is hard to find accommodation in Växjö and Kalmar we recommend that you, if you are eligible, sign up for accommodation provided by us.
If you are planning to stay longer than two semesters we recommend that you sign up on the different websites today to start collecting points. The more points you have the easier it will be for you to find somewhere to live after the two semesters are up. For students studying in Växjö, sign up on www.boplats.vaxjo.se/ , for students studying in Kalmar sign up on www.kalmarhem.se. You can read more on the Student Union website, see the links above.
By requesting help with accommodation you certify that if you cancel your studies at Linnaeus University later than four (4) weeks prior to the official start of the semester, you are still required to pay three (3) months’ rent provided that you have signed the rental agreement.
You will get reimbursement of the rent if you can show that you have gotten a negative decision form the Migration Agency.
Please remember that you cannot get accommodation from Linnaeus University if you do not pay your tuition fee within the deadline.
