Who is eligible for accommodation?

Our rooms and apartments can only be booked for international guest researchers visiting the University. This means that a person holding a position/being employed at Lund University (or any other Swedish university), is not eligible to receive accommodation from us.

Guest researchers

It is common that the procedure of bringing guest researchers to Lund varies from department to department. Solutions to finances etc. may be as numerous as guest researchers visiting the university. As you as the host department know all details regarding your guest and his/her stay, you will need to verify that your guest is indeed in Sweden as a guest researcher.

Please note that if your guest will receive a wage from, or hold a position at, Lund University, they will most probably be considered as an employee and not be eligible for accommodation though LU Accommodation.

It is the host department that takes the responsibility to deduce whether the researcher may be considered as a guest researcher or not before making a booking request with LU Accommodation. We expect that the specific situation of the researcher has been assessed accordingly to the above.

PhDs and postdocs

We do not yet have an established routine for how to handle PhD-students and postdocs (as we are still waiting for a decision from the vice chancellor), so we would need to add you manually into our system. We will need some type of letter of acceptance or proof of your position at Lunds University in an email to us for us to start the process of adding you to our queue.
