Rental Rules

 

Apply for an apartment

We are glad that you want to apply for one of our apartments! Register in our housing queue and start collection points today! You can register for our housing queue from the year you turn 17 and can bring a maximum amount of 365 points. After you have reached the maximum amount you need to be a member of a student union in Gothenburg to receive more points.

We own and maintain 2382 student apartments that are all within walking distance from Chalmers Campus Johanneberg or Campus Lindholmen. Available apartments are published on Tuesdays and Wednesdays here! If you find an apartment that you like, register your interest. Those with the highest amount of queue points, normaly 5 people, will receive a viewing offer of the apartment. The apartment will be offered to the person with the highest amount of queuing points that are still interested after the viewing.

Please note that the demand for student apartments in Gothenburg is high, therefore it may take 1,5 – 2 years before you receive an offer for an apartment that you are interested in.

Just admitted to the Chalmers University of Technology? You can find the answer to many of your questions here!

Our housing queue

Once you have registered, you will recive a queue point for every day you stand in our housing queue. If you are a member of the Chalmers student union you will receive 2 points per day, otherwise you will receive 1 point per day.
If your membership expires before you make a new payment for your membership, you will unfortunately not receive any queue point for those days when you are not a member. You keep the point you already collected!

You have the opportunity to get preparatory queue points! You can register in our housing queue from the calendar year that you reach the age of 17 and can receive a maximum of 365 points. You can only get preparatory points before you are a member of a student union and before you have a contract with us.

Keep in mind that you need to go in once every six months and update your registration, otherwise you will lose your queue points. When you get a contract whit us your  queue points are reset, then log in to “My Pages” and reactivate, to start
collecting points again!

Your queue points are individual, so you can´t give them away to anyone.

What are the rules of procedures in the queue?

When you express an interested in an apartment, please remember the following:

  • You can express an interest in a maximum of five apartments at any one time.
  • You will be offered at the most between 1 and 3 simultaneous viewings. (The system sorts them out regardless of maximum queue points).
  • You can reject offers to view a maximum of five times during a period of six months. After that, you are not entitled to apply for an apartment for a period of three months. You will, however, continue to accumulate queue points.
  • You will lose your queuing points if you give us the wrong information in your application.

Is there another way to get one of our apartments?

Short term contracts

Occasionally we have available apartments with short-term contracts. These contracts are often for a couple of months with no option to extend.  These apartments are published on the same place as the regular apartments . They are placed under the head line “Short term contract”.

Apartment exchange

After you have held a tenancy contract for at least 12 months you can exchange apartments with another tenant. Unfortunately, we cannot help you with finding another tenant to exchange apartments with, you will have to find a tenant yourself. The tenant with whom you exchange apartments is also subject to the rule relating to a minimum tenancy period of 12 months. This does not apply for those of you with Masters, Research or shortterm contracts. Masters, Research or shortterm contracts cannot be exchanged.
