Click here to register* (please use a translate function for easier navigation)

When register you need to check ”No” in the first box, since you do not have a Swedish personal identity number. Then we ask if you are a foreign student and admitted to Linnaeus University – please check ”Yes” in that box. You will then state your date of birth which shall end with your Personal code no. (Personal ID-number) you received from Linnaeus University, your own chosen password and your e-mail. 

 Criteria for renting studentapartment

  • Be admitted to at least 15 credits at Linnaeus University based at Kalmar Campus, Växjö or distance.
  • Here is all the requirement for searching for student housing (please use a translate function for easier navigation)

If you get a Swedish personal identity number after registering, please e-mail us your new ID and we will change it on your ”My pages” and any rental agreement.

Letter of admission

Due to the fact that a connection in the system, which handles study certificates between LNU and Kalmarhem does not always work correctly, it is sometimes not possible to apply for student accommodation on our website even if you should. 

If you qualify (see requirements above), you can e-mail us a copy of your letter of admission (Notification of Selection Results). We will then notify you via e-mail and make sure you can search for a student accommodation.

How do you apply for an accommodation?

The application process is described in five different steps, read more here.

Unfurnished accommodations

Our student accommodations are almost always unfurnished. If there is no information about furniture you can assume that the accommodation is unfurnished. If it says it is furnished the room will have a bed, a bookshelf, and a desk.

Keep in mind that you can only live alone in a student accommodation with shared spaces.

The student housing guarantee

Newly admitted international students are covered by the student housing guarantee.

If you do not have a Swedish personal identity number, have a coordination number or in some other way a fictitious personal identity number, Kalmarhem is not able to assess the credit terms and manual processing must take place. Because of that, you are expected to pay the student housing’s first two months’ rent in advance. The advance rents must be paid within two (2) weeks from the signing of the agreement. In cases where access is immediate, the payment requirement applies no later than the day before access. If the rents are not paid on time, there is a risk that you will lose your student housing contract.

Rental agreement – until further notice

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. Each vacant accommodation has a unique access date.

All rental agreements for student accommodations are until further notice and with three-month period of notice. You must submit a termination form when you want to cancel the rental agreement. Termination forms can be found here.

What does 10-month rent mean?

A student accommodation with 10-month rent (”period of payment: 10 månaders student”) is rental free between 16 June-15 Aug. This means that the basic rent is reduced to half the amount of your June and August invoice and completely reduced on the July invoice. Of course, your agreement runs on until further notice, until you choose to terminate it.

Internet and any individual measurement of household electricity and/or hot water will be charged as usual on the rent invoice even during the summer. It is only the basic rent that is reduced during this period. 

Most of our student accommodations has 10-month rent, but we also have some student accommodations with 12-month rent. It simply means you pay rent 12 months a year, just like our ordinary apartments.
