Gibraltar Guesthouse

The Building

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.

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.

Monthly rent

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.

*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.

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 via this link.

Storage Unit

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.

Laundry room

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.

Postbox

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.

Guest researchers and international master students

Apartments for guest researchers and international master students 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. Please click here to register in our housing queue.
