When can you apply?
LU Accommodation's application periods follow the cycle of admissions for exchange and master students each year. You can apply sometime during April and October each year. The period is open for about 25 days, which is followed by an allocation process that can vary in length. Applicants who do not receive accommodation are put on a waiting list.
Applying outside the application periods
In order to apply outside of the application periods, you need to contact LU Accommodation via e-mail. Applications are usually handled through a standby list or similar system, but it depends on the specific time of year.
If you miss the application period, you need to contact LU Accommodation via e-mail. Depending on the time of year you may still be considered in the allocation process, but you will always have lower priority than applicants who applied during the application period.
How do you apply?
International students can apply in their respective application periods by filling out an application, stating their study details, five (5) accommodation preferences, and any additional information necessary. In order to apply you first need to make an online account with us.
