Right next to Chalmers Campus Johanneberg, with the address Gibraltarvallsvägen 2, you will find this newly formed building. Spread out over six stories there are 100 individual student apartments, with a bus stop right outside and a short bike ride to the city center. Gibraltar Guesthouse is primarily for international master students and guest researchers at Chalmers University of Technology. As a tenant, you will get access to the pool located at Emilsborg, at Gibraltargatan 80, which is within walking distance.
Credits: Meet one of our tenants at Gibraltar Guesthouse. The video is by “We are Chalmers”. Our purpose for sharing it is to show case the apartment. All apartments at Gibraltar Guesthouse are the same size and have the same floor plan but it can be inverted depending on where it is situated in the building.
Type of Apartments
|Monthly rent, including additional costs1
|Studio with kitchen
|6 037 SEK (6101 VAT)
1Additional costs refer to fees to the Board of Trustees, internet, furniture, electricity and hot water. Please note that the costs are based on your consumption and thus the total rent can look different from month to month.
2 Depending on where in the building the apartment is located the floor plan might differ.
The above rent is for 2024.
As a tenant, you will get a payment slip every month which makes the living expense predictable. The basic rent is built up from the rent of the living space, heating, hot water, and electricity. The table below shows what your Monthly rent is built up from.
|5 305 SEK
|Council of Trustees
|6 037 SEK
*Electricity and hot water is charged in the monthly rent but the amount for hot water and electricity will be amended after we have measured your actual usage. If you use more than the standardized amount, it will be added to your payment slip after about 2 months. However, if you use less than the standardized amount, this amount will be deducted after about 2 months. Please note that 25% VAT is added to electricity and hot water and calculated on the invoice, in this example the VAT becomes 64 SEK ((160+97)*0.25). The amount on the rental invoice then becomes 6037 + 64 = 6101 SEK.
Here we have gathered information about the individual measurement of household electricity and hot water. Can’t find the answer you are looking for? Then you are welcome to contact us!
Do I need to do anything?
You do not need to do anything as the rent note will change automatically.
Why is the change being made?
This is done for environmental and energy reasons.
When will my first individual charge come?
On your rent note you get in March. There you see your consumption cost in February.
When will my rent note change?
On the note you receive in January that refers to your housing costs for February.
What happens when I cancel my contract?
On your last rental advice, we calculate a cost based on your previous consumption. You will therefore not be charged afterwards.
How do I pay my invoice?
You pay either on My Pages or at our customer reception just like before.
Do the electricity and hot water costs come at a special note?
No, all your costs come at the same note. Just like before.
Where do I see my electricity and hot water costs?
You can see this in your rent note. Today it is not possible to see your consumption, but one of our goals is that you should be able to follow your consumption.
How much will I pay?
This is a question that we unfortunately can not answer as it depends on your consumption. However, we would like to inform that the basic rent, furniture, internet and the fee to the Board of Trustees will be the same costs every month. The cost of electricity and hot water is based on your consumption.
How can I influence my costs?
An individual measurement and billing of electricity and hot water costs means that you as a tenant have the opportunity to influence your monthly costs. You can, among other things, reduce your costs through quick showers and low-energy lamps. Remember that it is from an environmental point of view that we implement this change.
Furnishing, appliances, and fixtures
All of the apartments are furnished. Every apartment is equipped with a single bed including a bedside table, chairs, Kitchen table, armchair and lights, a stove, an oven, a fridge/freezer, a cooker hood, blinds, a shower curtain rail, and a clothes hanger. Chalmers made an apartment tour in one of our apartments in Gibraltar Guesthouse, which you can see above this section.
Every apartment has a storage unit inside the apartment, there is also room for bicycles.
Parking facilities for bicycles and cars
Bicycles can be parked in each apartment. There is no parking for cars that are just for tenants, but there are other parking facilities close to the building.
A communal laundry room is situated on the ground floor. This room houses three laundry stations each consisting of a washing machine, a tumble dryer, and a hot air-drying cabinet. The room is accessible around the clock and bookable outside the laundry room. We have taken the next step towards environmentally friendly living and will start using automatic detergent dosing. This means the washing machines will provide you with detergent for every wash and you do not have to add your detergent. Furthermore, it is not possible to use softener.
A postbox per apartment for receiving mail is just inside the front main door on the entrance floor.
Recycling and waste-handling
As a tenant, you can sort and fraction your household waste adjacent to the building.
Housing for Guest researchers will not be published on our webpage. They are administrated separately by the institution International Staff Mobility at Chalmers (ISMO) and Student Centre in collaboration with us. We do not choose who will be offered apartments for guest scientists and international master students. This is done by ISMO and Student Centre.
Guest researchers at Chalmers should contact ISMO for the housing queue and questions regarding housing. Note that you will also need to register in our housing queue. Go to My Pages to register in our housing queue.

The apartments reserved for Master students at Chalmers University of Technology are not published on our web page. They are administrated separately by the Student Center at Chalmers in collaboration with us. We do not choose who will be offered apartments for international master students. This is done by the Student Center.
Every spring, normally by mid June we receive a list from the Student Center at Chalmers University of Technology, with the students to offer a tenancy contract at Chalmers Studentbostäder. However, the actual contract will be e-mailed to the ones on our list after some time, so please be patient.
If you are on our list, and receive an email from us with information that you will be offered an apartment, it will take a few weeks before you get the actual offer.
Please note that you will only be offered one apartment, and if you reject our offer you will need to find an apartment on your own.
If you want to increase your chances to get one of our regular apartments, and not only the apartments through the Student Centre, you need to register in our housing queue as well. Please click here to register in our housing queue. Please note that it usually takes about 1.5-2 years until you are offered your first tenancy contract.
Available apartments are published on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Therefore, you need to both register your interest to the Student Centre and register in our housing queue at the same time to increase your chances if you need a regular apartment after the tenancy limitation period of the Masters apartment. This does, however not increase your chances of getting a Masters apartment from Chalmers since it is a separate system.

Michelle Monteiro is your housing host and will help you with fault reports and inspections of the apartment. Faulty reports are done through My Pages.
