Why do students at Chalmers receive two points per day?
We are a foundation with the aim of offering housing to students at Chalmers University of technology during their studies. Therefore, students at Chalmers receive two queuing points per day.

It takes usually 1,5 to 2 years until you are offered your first tenancy contract. When you have signed a tenancy contract, your queueing points will be set to zero, so please remember to reactive in our housing queue to start collecting points again.
Before moving in, there are several things to consider. Read more information regarding moving in via this link. We hope you will feel at home in your new apartment!
