Information for the visiting scholar

It is the host department at Lund University that requests a reservation of accommodation for their incoming guest researcher. The application is done through the booking request form.


Important information

Make sure that you have read through the following pages on our website before contacting us:

Request a reservation

You cannot request a reservation directly as a guest researcher. Requests directly from the visiting researcher will not be accepted. Your host department requests a reservation through filling out our webform.

Once LU Accommodation has received a booking request, you will receive an email with further information on how to proceed:

  • You will be sent a link to create a password for our housing portal. Once created we ask that you set up your profile and fill in details there.
  • In your profile you can designate which housing areas you are interested in and if you only want to view accommodation under a maximum rent cost. These are your housing preferences and are used as a filter to show accommodation that aligns with your preferred housing situation. 
  • When your profile is complete you can start registering interest for the available accommodation. You can find these under the tab called “Available now”. A batch of available accommodation is published about two times each month. If there are no available accommodation open for application, this page will be empty.
  • Please pay attention to the access date before applying, as this will be the start date of the contract. 
  • There are usually multiple applicants in queue for each apartment that is available in the batch. We advise that you apply to more than one apartment to increase your chances at securing accommodation. 
  • Once the application deadline has passed, we will begin sending out offers in order of when we received your booking request. The applicant that has been in our housing queue for the longest will receive the first housing offer. If this offer is declined, the offer will go to the next applicant in queue.
  • You either accept or decline the offer. If accepted and you are first in the queue, we will then send you a contract to sign. The contract will be sent via email through a service called Scrive.
