Keys can be picked up at our Customer Service Office, upon presentation of valid ID, at 14.00 on the first weekday after the contract takes effect at the earliest. If the contract starts on a holiday you can move in on the next coming weekday. The researcher or a representative of the institute named in the contract can pick up the keys.

When you move in, your apartment should be properly cleaned. If it is not properly cleaned, you need to contact us directly! You need to contact us the same day you collect your keys and before you put all your things in the apartment. Of course, we do our best, in cooperation with a cleaning company, to clean the apartment before you move in. The link below is the checklist for cleaning before moving out. These places should be clean when you move in, so please view the list and inform us if it is not clean enough.

Cleaning checklist

The rent stated includes *electricity, *hot water, furniture, Internet connection and Board of Trustees at Chalmers Studenthem tenant association fees. The 12% VAT payable in the Guest House (Eklandagatan) is also charged in the rent. You can now pay the rent by card at the Customer Service Office. To find more information about payments, please click here!

*For Gibraltar Guest House (Gibraltarvallsvägen) the electricity and hot water are charged in the total rent, but after we have measured the actual usage, we will amend the invoice. If you have used less than the standardized amount it will be deducted from the rent and if you have used more it will be added to your rent.

You will need valid home insurance for the entire rental period for your rental contract to be effective. Home insurance is needed to cover any damages to the apartment for example in case of a fire. It will also cover your personal belongings that you keep in the apartment.
When you move in you will need to register your address at the Tax Office, which is easily done on their webpage. To receive your mail to your new address, please change your address as soon as you get it from us.

All apartments have a kitchen and bathroom and they are all furnished. The apartments have kitchen utensils, everything needed in a kitchen, such as glasses, plates, knives, and forks, etc. However, there is no electrical equipment like for example coffee makers, irons, etc in the apartments. If you have any questions about exactly what is included in the Kitchen you should make a faulty report to your Housing Host on My pages.

If you don´t have a Swedish Social Security number you need to log in with your date of birth and the ID written in the contract. Normally it ends with 0P (YYMMDD0P), but if someone else has the same birthdate you might get nr 1P, 2P, 4P, etc in the end so please check the contract. You will need to make a password reset under “First visit”.

Remember to contact us with a copy of your ID when you have got a Swedish social security number. You will need to update the Chalmers Student union as well.
