Accommodation at Linnaeus University

First and foremost, congratulations to all who have been admitted to Linnaeus University, for the upcoming autumn semester. I can assure you that you will be having an amazing time once you are here in Sweden. And even better news, it’s getting warmer! So by the time you reach, you would still be able to catch the beautiful Swedish summer.

However, now you must all be worried about where to live. Its true for most of the students and I had been there too. But fear not, Linnaeus University has got your back!

Keep your eyes on your emails regularly as the university will be sending in important information about your enrollment and accommodation soon. Follow the guidelines that would be provided to ensure that you end up getting a place to stay. Linnaeus University covers the 1st year housing for all the incoming students as they would be doing all the hard work to arrange it for you. Thus, I advise that you accept any housing offers made to you from the university. Overall in Sweden, there is a shortage of accommodation and it can get extremely tough for any international student coming here for the first time. Thus it’s always safe to be ready and contact the university administration in case of any confusion.

The accommodations here are of high quality and affordable. You have all the necessary things required to ensure you enjoy your living here. There are dedicated personnel around to always offer you help in case you face any sort of problems. So don’t worry too much! A home away from home but it’s going to be nice and enjoyable.

I will write more about what are to come next to the best of my ability, so that it may help you all waiting to come here! Adios!

      Hello Rabia,

      Well did you not receive the link that allows you to register for accommodation at Linnaeus University? Finding shared accommodation can be difficult as its not done officially and you have to know students personally if they are willing to share. In my opinion, that would be difficult until you come here.

      Hello Maksud,

      It is completely up to you yo decide that. Usually universities give 1 year of housing guarantee to new students. So I can recommend to contact the university accommodation office to discuss your details.

      Hope that helps!

      Congrats on your admission. As for pictures, you can check the Boplats Växjö website as they are the major landlord here and owns the student housing.

      Good luck!

      Hello Nafis,

      Congrats on your admission! If you have read this blog post of mine, I mentioned that the university will send you an email with instruction about your accommodation. It will be a link where you need to sign up. Later, they will send you a housing contract offer with the pricing and other details. Check your email regularly and contact university in case of any confusion.

      Good luck.
