Exchange students

As a full time exchange student, you may get accommodation guarantee through the student welfare organization Sammen if you apply within the deadline and sign a contract starting from the beginning of the semester. If your courses start in the middle of the semester, and you do not want to sign a contract starting from the beginning of the semester, you can still apply for accommodation through Sammen, but without the guarantee.

Be aware that you have to pay rent for the entire semester. You may only terminate the lease after 3 months and with 3 months’ notice starting from the first day in the following month.

Application deadlines for accommodation with housing guarantee:

  • 15th of May
  • 1st of November

Information about housing guarantee from Sammen

Do not apply until you have received information from HVL regarding the application process. You will receive this via email before the application deadline. It is important that you apply to the correct “queue” to get the housing guarantee. The email from HVL will specify this so we can be sure that you apply for the correct type of housing near the correct campus.
