Luleå University of Technology will do its best to make sure you receive accommodation during your time of exchange studiesNB: This, however, only extends for a reasonable time. (i.e. It is not indefinite and is subject to you being in contact with the Housing Coordinator a few months prior to your arrival). It is your obligation to inform the Exchange Student Housing Coordinator of your arrival, especially of late arrival. You submit your interest in receiving accommodation from us when you make your exchange studies application in MoveON.

Once we receive your interest in accommodation, the Exchange Student Housing Coordinator will e-mail you with information regarding available housing options. Please reply to the Coordinator as soon as possible with your preferences. If no reply is received within the specified deadlines, this will be regarded as your intention to no longer receive housing assistance via LTU.

Please note that we cannot guarantee that all your requests will be met.

In order to provide everyone accommodation we reserve the right to make placement according to availability.

You also have to let us know if you decide to find an apartment on your own. When you submit the MoveON application, just click "no" for housing. For more information about how to find an accommodation on your own, see the guide to housing linked to below. You also have to fill out a LURC arrival form even if you are not planning to get picked up by LURC or receive our housing assistance.

Room assignments are made during the summer for autumn placements and late autumn for spring placements. Please note that the housing contract is for full months, i.e. autumn semester August to December and/or spring semester January to the second week of June and that you must arrive at the beginning of the semester to be guaranteed accommodation.

If you are a fee-paying Master Student, please consult the New Student page regarding housing.
