Student Housing Companies

All international students can apply for housing directly at the two local student housing companies, SGS Studentbostäder and Chalmers Studentbostäder. They offer various types of student accommodation, ranging from furnished rooms with shared kitchen facilities to flats with two or three rooms.

  • Student residences can be found all over central Gothenburg and its surrounding areas.
  • All student residences are off campus.
  • Be sure to apply in good time, since the demand for student housing is very high, especially for the autumn semester.

The waiting time in the beginning of the autumn semester is normally 1.5 years for a student room and 2 years for a flat. This means that it can be difficult to be allocated a room or a flat in a student residence in the autumn. However, we strongly recommend that you apply for a student room as soon as possible to start collecting queue time.

How to Apply for an SGS Room or Flat?

You can apply for SGS rooms or flats via the SGS website.
The SGS website contains all necessary information about the application procedure, types of accommodation, locations, rental rates etc.

Read the section on Applying info for more details about the steps you need to take in order to apply.
