Our rental rules

Chalmers Studentbostäder is a foundation with the objective of providing student housing for persons enrolled at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. To be eligible for housing you must be enrolled at Chalmers or Gothenburg University and you must also be a member of one of the Student Unions.

2019 we have a special arrangement for distribution of apartments to newly accepted students in Chalmers. You can read more about it here.

By registering on our housing queue. To apply for an apartment you must be registered in our housing queue. You can register easily on My Pages.
Vacant apartments are published here on our Website, normally Tuesday until Wednesday.
Applicants with the most queue points (normally between five and ten applicants) will be offered a viewing. A contract will be offered to the applicant with the highest number of queue points among those who accepted a viewing. In the event that two or more applicants have the same number of queue points, a lottery in the system will determine which one of them is offered the apartment.

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 rented out on a ”first come first served” basis.

Apartment exchange
After you have held a tenancy contract for at least 12 months you have the right to exchange apartments with another tenant. You must find a tenant willing to exchange with you and you can use the queueing system to advertise. 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 or Research contracts. Masters or Research apartments cannot be exchanged.

You can register on our housing queue from the year you reach the age of 17. You must be 18 years of age to sign a tenancy agreement.

You must update your registration every six months.

If you fail to update your registration every six months, by logging on to My pages,  you will lose any points you have accumulated. When you receive an apartment your queue points will be reset to zero and you need to logon to My Pages and reenter the queue.

Prior to being accepted as a student you can collect preparatory queue points. You will be given one point for each day that you are registered and the maximum number of preparatory queue points is 365. After that membership in a Student Union is required for queue points to accumulate further.

Membership i Chalmers Student Union gives 2 queue points per day. Membership in one of the student unions in the Association of Student Unions in Gothenburg gives one point per day.

You cannot share your queue points with another person or give them away, they are individual.
