For students

You can register in the student housing queue from the year you turn 17. The student housing queue is free of charge and you get one queue point for each day you are in the queue.


You can submit up to three applications at a time. If you have already submitted three applications and are interested in an additional apartment, you must delete one of your current applications.

How to submit an application

  1. Log in to "My pages". External link.

  2. Apartments in the student housing category External link. (studentbostad) are distributed according to queue points. Select your desired apartment.

  3. Click on the "Intresseanmäl" (Apply) button and fill in your information. You can submit up to three applications at a time.

  4. In the student housing queue, the six applicants with the highest number of queue points will be invited to attend a viewing. When the application deadline for an apartment has expired, the housing agency contacts the person with the most queue points and offers them the apartment.

  5. If you sign a lease for student housing, your points will be reset to zero and you will need to re-register for the student housing queue to begin collecting points again.

Regardless of which student housing you choose, you will only be required to pay rent for 10 months out of the year. The summer months are rent free.

Who can submit an application?

To submit an application in the student housing queue you must be at least 17 years old and have an active notice of admission to Linnaeus University or a vocational college and be actively studying in Växjö. You can also study remotely or via the internet. You must have at least 15 college course units per term. You can live in a student residence for a maximum of 6 years.

Receive notifications about apartments and neighborhoods that match your preferences

You can select your preferred types of apartments and neighborhoods on "My pages" External link. under "My applications" and then "Subscriptions" When an apartment that matches your preferences becomes available, you will automatically receive a notification via e-mail.

One year in the housing queue free of charge

When you register for the student housing queue, you will be automatically registered for one year in the "non-student" housing queue with no fee, as an extra benefit because we hope that you will want to continue living in Växjö after completing your studies. If you do not want to be in the housing queue, you can disregard the invoice when it is sent out; you will then be automatically removed.

Uploading your notice of admission

In connection with being offered student housing, you need to present a valid notice of admission to either Linnaeus University or a vocational college. You can upload your notice of admission by going to "My pages" External link., then "My applicantions", and selecting "Applicant profile". Under the heading called "Studieintyg" (Study certificates), click the button called "Antagningsbesked eller registreringsintyg" (Notice of admission or Certificate of registration) and from there you will be able to upload the necessary documents.
