It is important to read through the following information regarding insurance. You will need to be covered by a home insurance when staying in accommodation provided by us, LU Accommodation.
Do not hesitate to ask your host department if you are unsure what kind of insurance you will be covered by while visiting Lund University.
Incoming guests, staff and interns with no Swedish personal code number from the Tax Office are covered by Insurance for foreign visitors (former GIF) through Kammarkollegiet. Please read more about that here.
The insurance offered by ‘Student IN’, ‘FAS+’ and Insurance for foreign visitors/'GIF' has a property cover as well as a liability cover.
Incoming students and others that are covered by ‘Student IN’, ‘FAS+’ and Insurance for foreign visitors/ 'GIF' through Kammarkollegiet that have a housing contract with LU Accommodation for a shorter period do therefore not necessarily need to obtain a separate home insurance through a private insurance company in Sweden. We do however recommend you to read through all terms and conditions to ensure they are satisfacroty.
Guest researchers not covered by Insurance for foreign visitors (former GIF) or have/will receive a Swedish personal code number, need to obtain a home insurance policy through a private home insurance company independently.
In general we recommend to obtain a private home insurance in either case, as the conditions are usually better as well as covers more than the home insurance which are included in the above.
