In collaboration with Chalmers University of Technology, we have apartments reserved for Guest Researchers at Chalmers. These apartments will not be published on our webpage. They are administrated separately by the institution International Staff Mobility at Chalmers (ISMO) in collaboration with us. Read more about it here.
All research 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. Quilt, pillow, or bed linen are not included.
Read more about what furniture is included in the apartments and how to buy extra fittings here.
More about collecting your keys, Home insurance, change of address, and other useful information is found under Guest researcher/Moving in.
More about terminating your contract, change of address, cleaning the apartment before moving out, and other useful information is found under Guest researcher/Moving out.
I want to terminate my contract in advance
The date of termination is already fixed when receiving your contract. Please contact ISMO if you want to terminate the contract in advance. Termination has to be sent to ISMO firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I pay by card?
Yes, we accept payments by card at the Customer Service office during our opening hours. Read more here.
Is the amount on your invoice not the same as on the contract?
If you live at Gästhuset, Eklandagatan, there will be VAT added on the invoice.
When is the due date of the invoice?
Normally the due date for the rent is the last day of the month before your contract starts.
Please check the due date on your invoice to be sure.
Why is the rent different for apartments of the same size?
The rent depends on which address the apartment is situated. Apartments that are completely new or have been renovated, or have a better standard, for example, a bigger refrigerator and freezer or a toilet that is tiled new windows, will be more expensive than the ones of older and or lower standard.
From when do I need to pay rent?
If your contract day starts, for example, August 1st you will be charged from that day, regardless of when you pick up the keys.
What are the costs of electricity and hot water?
Electricity and hot water are included in the rent but not at Gibraltar Guesthouse, Gibraltarvallsvägen. Please view the information for each area under Housing.
For how many months do I need to pay rent each year?
At Chalmers Studentbostäder you pay for 12 months each year.
Are pets allowed?
It is not allowed to have pets in the apartments. This is because of the risk of allergy since the apartments are furnished and it is not possible to clean the furniture well enough to remove all traces of the pets.
