Housing Offers

Applicants are offered housing according to queue position, availability and preferences. Once an offer is received, an applicant has five days to respond to the offer. If they decline the offer, they exit the queue, but are welcome to join again, as the lowest priority type.

Once an application period closes, all applicants who applied for available housing are ranked in the queue, and will be offered available housing in the order of their queue position. If there is still available housing, but none that matches the preferences of the next applicant in the queue, the accommodation will be offered to the next eligible person.

Exception: Applicants with housing guarantees will be made an offer of accommodation, even if there are no matching options left, as LU Accommodation has an obligation to make one offer to these applicants.

Information about the Housing Queue

If you receive a housing offer

Housing offers will be sent out within the next 2 to 3 weeks. Applicants who receive an offer have 5 days to log on to their account, review their offer, and accept or reject it.

An applicant who rejects an offer is removed from the housing queue. They are welcome to join the queue again, but will not receive any guarantee or priority, as this is only applied to one offer of housing.

An applicant who accepts the offer will be sent a housing contract from LU Accommodation's digital contract service provider, Scrive. Once they have digitally signed the contract, the booking is confirmed, and they will be able to begin the arrival process.

Information about the Arrival Process

If you do not receive an offer

LU Accommodation normally received 2 to 4 times the number of applications as available accommodations. This means that the majority of applicants will not receive an offer in the first round. 

As soon as LU Accommodation has confirmed all applications, offers for the available accommodations will be sent out via e-mail and published on the housing account. All applicants who do not receive an offer will receive an e-mail update when the last offer for the first round has been sent out. Such applicants may still receive offers of housing later, for offers that have been rejected.

Subsequent rounds of housing offers

If a housing offer is rejected, it will be sent to the next eligible applicant in the housing queue. LU Accommodation aims to send these out as soon as we receive notice of the rejection, approximately once a week.

New batches of available housing

LU Acccommodation continually receives cancellations from current tenants, and from applicants who have signed a contract, but changed their plans. Any such recent vacancies will be published in new batches of available housing, also including any housing options that have been repeatedly rejected in the first batch.

We preview that we will publish one such batch each in June, July and early August. As this is the first time we are testing a new application procedure, we cannot accurately predict how many accommodations will form part of these later batches, but we suspect it will be very few.
