Accommodation - exchange students outside of Europe (bilateral agreements)

You will find information in the admission letter from Chalmers regarding how to apply for accommodation.
It is important that you follow the instructions in the admission letter. Don't wait until the last minute, as there is a very high demand for rooms in Gothenburg.

The accommodation can be located outside the central parts of Gothenburg.

Housing standard

Standards in Sweden is that a room in a student dormitory is furnished, which means a higher rent. Rents vary between SEK 4,000–6,500 per month, including wifi, electricity, heating and water. The rooms are furnished, but you need to arrange items such as: mattress, pillow, duvet, sheets, towels and kitchen utensils. (You can find reasonably priced housing items at both furniture- and food stores.)  All administration (contracts, keys, payment) are handled by the housing agencies, not by Chalmers. If you stay with a private landlord you need to make sure what's included in the rent, i.e. heating, water, electricity, wifi, furniture etc.
