The International Office at Luleå University of Technology does its best to make sure that all Exchange students on university exchange programmes and Master’s students who pay tuition fees or hold tuition fee waiver/scholarship receive housing during their time of study. However, this only extends for a reasonable time and it is your obligation to inform us of your arrival, and of the fact that you require accommodation. The accommodations provided are all single bed student accommodations. If you are a fee-paying Master student, you are kindly asked to contact the Student Housing Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least 3 months before the beginning of semester to reserve accommodation.
If this does not apply to you, you need to find a suitable accommodation on your own. Below, you will find some information and recommendations regarding where to look.
Since there is a shortage of accommodation in Luleå, we recommend you to sign up in the housing queue as early as possible. To receive student accommodation, you need to be accepted as a student at the University but you can register and put yourself in line years in advance. Once you have been accepted, you can start applying for accommodation actively. With non-student accommodation, there is of course no limit to how early you can apply.
