Extend your housing contract

LU Accommodation normally has two extension periods every year, usually sometime during April and October.

How does it work?

You can extend only for full semesters, and only for as long as you have studies. You can extend until the projected end of your studies

  • In order to extend, please log in to your housing account and make a support ticket under the tab "Contract request". Specify your new desired end date.
  • Extensions can be cancelled but only as long as you contact luacc [at] service [dot] lu [dot] se during the extension period. If you contact us after the deadline a cancellation of the extension is no longer possible.

Who can extend?

Extensions are first and foremost for guaranteed students, as long as they still fulfil the terms for having housing guarantee. Depending on the semester and availability we can also accept the extensions for other students.

Guaranteed students

Guaranteed students who fulfil the terms and conditions for the housing guarantee will be offered the possibility to extend their contract into the next academic year.

Other students

Students that do not have housing guarantee will only be offered housing if there is space to fill all the guaranteed students coming for the upcoming semester. We encourage you to apply if you have continued studies at Lund University and you are still going to be eligible for housing with us with your continued studies. But also know that we might not be able to extend you, so finding alternative housing should also be a priority.
