General advice for looking for accommodation
Please refer to the information sheet by student organisation Bostadspoolen for a comprehensive guide on how to look for accommodation:
Keep your apartment during the summer holidays
If you are studying on a programme that lasts longer than one year and are planning to leave town for summer, we strongly recommend that you do not terminate your accommodation contract before the summer holiday. During the autumn intake, priority is given to new students. Therefore, those who give up their apartment before summer may often spend several weeks or months looking for new accommodation.
Note that if you are staying at Studentbostäder or have a 10-month contract with StudentBo or ByggVesta, you do not need to pay any rent for June and July. Do make sure that you terminate other contracts or pay other bills, or you may come back home to find expensive fees for unpaid bills.
If you want to change your current accommodation - regardless of the length of your studies - a good time to do that is in late winter and early spring, when the largest number of apartments is generally available. Thus, if your contract expires before summer, it is also advisable to look for an alternative during late winter/early spring.
