News updates from 2018
The post-Arrival Day waiting list
Housing applicants present at our Housing lottery on Arrival day, that did not receive a housing offer, have been placed on the post-Arrival day waiting list.
This new waiting list follows the order established through the Housing lottery process. This list is now considered as the new LU Accommodation waiting list for the Autumn 2018 academic term. If you arrived after 10:00 on the 20th of August and requested to be placed on the waiting list then you will have been signed up for the new waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis.
The online waiting list ceased to exist on the 20th August 2018 and has been replaced by this new post-Arrival day waiting list, for which you can only register in person at the LU Accommodation reception desk found at Tunavägen 20 in Lund.
2018-08-13 LU Accommodation Housing Lottery
The last available rooms have been offered today. If, up until now, you have not received a room offer on your LU Accommodation housing account, unfortunately there weren't enough rooms for you to get an offer this semester. If we receive late cancellations, those rooms will be offered in the morning of Arrival Day (in the AF-building on Sandgatan 2, Lund) on the 20th of August, through a lottery. Experience tells us there will be very few vacant rooms for the lottery, but any available rooms will be offered to students as follows.
Between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM draws will be handed out to newly admitted international bachelor, master or exchange students (with studies starting at Lund University Autumn 2018) who are physically present and who have:
made an application through our website: https://applications.luaccommodation.lu.se/applications/
can provide photographic ID and
can provide proof of admission (Letter of Acceptance or Notification of Selection Results)
Each student can only receive one draw, and only those present will receive draws. The drawn numbers are going to be random, so coming earlier than 9:00 AM will not increase your chances of getting a better number. Distribution of rooms will proceed in the order of the numbers, starting from the lowest, until the available rooms run out. Under no circumstance can anyone participate in the lottery without being physically present at the mentioned address, at the specified time. When all the vacant rooms have been chosen and reserved, the remaining students will be put on a waiting list, following the order established through the lottery. From that moment this will be a new waiting list. If you arrive after 10:00 AM on the 20th of August, you will be able to sign up for the new waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis. The online waiting list will cease to exist and will be replaced by this new waiting list, for which you can only register in person.
From the 20th of August our office at Winstrupsgatan 8 will be relocated to Sofieberg, (address: Tunavägen 20) .
For the autumn semester of 2018 we will have two new additions to our current housing areas:
The brand new housing area Sofieberg will have both one-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom apartments.
At our housing area Eddan a new building, building C, has been constructed. It has a similar layout to buildings D and E with the exception that it also has studio flats.
If you are still in need of accommodation, you are welcome to come to our reception during our visiting hours. Specific information about the type of accommodation available will be given to you when you visit our reception.
Please be aware that you will need to visit us before 15.00 Friday the 19th January 2018 if you are interested in a room/apartment. The rooms/apartments will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
Only students fulfilling all of the criteria below are eligible to receive a room offer:
- You are an international student (not PhD or postdoc) currently in Lund, Malmö or Helsingborg.
- You can show your Letter of Acceptance or Notification of selection results and a passport or national ID card.
- You are prepared to sign a housing contract starting immediately.
Please note that we cannot provide housing for families.
