Find housing

As a new student, the housing situation in Lund can feel hopeless. Many students choose to live in residence, outside of Lund or alternatively for one or a few semesters. Since Lund is a good cycling city, you don't have to live in the center to easily get back and forth from your home. The important thing to think about is to join the housing queue as soon as possible, in order to have a chance of owning your own accommodation in Lund.

AF residences

AF Bostäder manages roughly 7000 homes and is southern Sweden's largest student housing company.

Civil registration, housing allowance and home insurance

When you have found somewhere to live, it is important that you register, i.e. register yourself, there. This is so that you can apply for housing allowance, which you can only do in the municipality where you are registered. Change of address takes place via the Tax Agency in the form of a notification of a change in the national register when you move. The Swedish Tax Agency has no such cooperation with any private company and according to law, it is only to the Swedish Tax Agency that you can report a change of address in the population register. It's also free! Enter into where it says about national registration for students.

Changing the civil registration is done fastest and easiest via the Swedish Tax Agency's e-service on the website. Swedish address change offers a paid service for time-limited forwarding. This service is not mandatory.
