Just do as they say, and do it today
Don’t camp – apply for housing queues.
It’s complicated and it’s not: if you are new to Lund and want to have a chance at a cheap student room as offered by the student association housing agency (AFB), apply for the lottery (!) that will give you a better chance at a better room.
This is especially important if you haven’t gotten a room through the International Office. (Even if you have been offered a place through IHO, you can always apply anyway – it’s nice to have options.)
So click here and follow the instructions!
If it doesn’t work out, other housing venues are explained here – and don’t forget the Blocket boards, and be open to finding a place in nearby cities like big sister Malmö and little sister Dalby. Just watch out for scams!
First year students of all programs can apply
The Lund University students’ association, Akademiska Föreningen or AF, now part of Studentlund, offers housing through AF Bostäder. Queues are usually quite long, often over a year, but new students (novischer) are given a small break by having the chance to participate in a lottery for a better queue number.
Details can be found here. Note the application period for these special numbers only runs 14-17 July, so time it right!
So it begins
This is a busy week in Lund, with the influx of new international students. For those who arrived last term or last year – feeling nostalgic? 🙂
If so you can check out the pictures and videos that are sure to make the news in the coming days – it’s already begun, see here (Google translated from Sydsvenskan)!
