Read the pre-arrival guide thoroughly
All students admitted to Lund University are sent a pre-arrival guide before the start of the semester. These guides provide detailed information to help you prepare for your stay in Lund and the answers to most of the questions we receive from students.
LU Accommodation is mainly a service for international exchange and degree-seeking students. The application for housing via LU Accommodation closed on 8 May. Please contact LU Accommodation at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to apply after the application deadline.
Students with a housing guarantee do not lose their guarantee if applying after the deadline, but LU Accomodation cannot ensure that they will be able to offer you housing before the start of the semester.
LU Accommodation will not be able to offer housing to all international students and therefore we strongly recommend that you also apply through other accommodation agencies.
AF bostäder housing lottery 13–16 July
Sign up for AF Bostäder’s new student ("novisch") housing lottery between 13–16 July. Make sure to only sign up for AF's lottery, not their regular housing queue, so that it is clear that you are a new student that should be given priority in the queue.
Remember to print your Notification of Selection results!
We encourage you to print the "Notification of Selection Results" from your account at www.universityadmissions.se. This is your official letter of acceptance that you will need both for your residence permit application (if applicable) and when you arrive in Lund.
