Find somewhere to live

It is not always simple to find somewhere to live in Lund, so you might have to be active and look for yourself in Lund and closeby communities. Don't give up - most of the time it will sort it self out when all the queues have been dealt with.

Here are some advices and links:

AFB - student housing in Lund

AFB (Akademiska föreningens bostäder) is the main provider of student dorms and apartments.

Bopoolen (Housing pool)

Bopoolen is run by students and is usually a good complement to AFB.

LU Accommodations

LU Accommodation is part of Student Services at Lund University and offers housing for international students. This is primarily for exchange students but all international students can apply.

Other possible providers of housing

There are other "private" or public providers of housing. Many live outside Lund, since the commuting distances are short (Malmö - 15 minutes, Kävlinge - 10 minutes, Landskrona - 20 minutes and so on).

NOTE: Do ask earlier exchange students who have been in Lund for advice - there are usually a number of "underground" ways of finding housing. Ask your coordinator at your home university for contact information to earlier students.

NOTE 2: Do arrive early to the welcome day and put your name down for housing that are or will become available during the day.

On the behalf of Lund University and county I would like to apologize for the inconvenience this housing situation might cause you!
