International student housing

Degree-seeking students (students who are not here via an exchange agreement) are asked to arrange their own accommodation. There are a number of options when it comes to finding a place to stay. As there is a high demand for accommodation, especially in the beginning of the autumn term, you need to be flexible and consider various accommodation alternatives.

We also highly recommend that you download our new Housing guide for international students 2018/19. It contains valuable information and guidance to get you started looking for accommodation in Gothenburg. We update the guide as necessary throughout the year, but you can always find the latest version here.
