Incoming international student
We collaborate with Linneaus University to offer housing for incoming international students. If you have been admitted to the university for a semester abroad we will offer you housing. Please contact Linneaus University to confirm that you are covered by this agreement.
After receiving information regarding your acceptance from Linnaeus University, we will send you an offer for a student housing. This offer will be sent to the email-address that you have registered at Linnaeus University. Keep in mind that you can only live alone in a student accommodation with shared spaces.
Current international student
After staying with us for two semesters you’re no longer entitled to the student accommodation intended for international students. By then you will have to apply for a ordinary student accommodation by our ordinary rules. This means that after spring semester you need to have arranged a new accommodation on your own in advance.
Our student accommodations are almost always unfurnished. If there’s no information about furniture you can assume that the accommodation is unfurnished. If it says it’s furnished the room will have a bed, a bookshelf and a desk.
All tenancy agreements for a student accommodation are until further notice and with three-month period of notice. This also applies to your current tenancy agreement if you want to terminate it before the expiry date. You must fill a termination form (you’ll find it here) when you want to cancel the tenancy agreement. We usually rent out accommodations three months in advance so to get a new home for example from 1st of June you need to apply for a new accommodation well in advance, as early as February.
International students who wish to apply for a student accommodation at Kalmarhem must:
– be admitted to full-time studies based at Kalmar Campus.
– be admitted with the same social security number that you’ve registered with at Kalmarhem.
Sometimes it’s not possible to apply for a student accommodation at Kalmarhem despite the fact that it should work. It’s because the automatic link between LNU and Kalmarhem doesn’t always work correct. The most common reason is that you could be admitted with a different social security number than the one registered at LNU. If you have a ”T-number” at LNU or if you have a fictitious social security number at Kalmarhem, it’s not possible to apply.
As long as you qualify (see requirements above), you can submit a copy of your letter of admission in digital form and send it to Kalmarhem by e-mail and we’ll manually open up the possibility to search for a student accommodation.
From July to September and also November to January Kalmarhem has an ongoing student housing guarantee for new Swedish students at LNU so you will not be able to apply for student accommodations until the student housing guarantee is completed. Remember that Kalmarhem is not the sole owner of student housing. To be sure you get what you want we recommend you to broaden your search by also contacting other property owners in the municipality.
How long can I stay in my current student accommodation?
You can’t stay longer than until your contract end which is 15th of June every year. This means that from the 16th of June you need to have arranged a new accommodation on your own in advance and there are unfortunately no exceptions.
If you want to apply for another student accommodation with Kalmarhem, you need to register to start collecting points with which you are applying for housing here at kalmarhem.se.
How do I register at Kalmarhem.se?
You register here (please use the translate function for easier navigation)
If you have a Swedish social security number you can’t register with the number you got from Linnaeus University. Please register with your full Swedish social security number (YYMMDD-xxxx).
If you don’t have a Swedish social security number you need to check the box ”No” to get a new fictive security number from Kalmarhem. When or if you get a Swedish social security number after registering, please visit us on Larmtorget 3 with your new ID and we will change it on your tenancy agreement and on your ”My Pages”.
Please note! Once you have registered you need to e-mail us your letter of admittance that you’ll find in LADOK.
