Accommodation

Since there is a shortage of furnished rooms in Skövde, especially in August, it is essential that you find accommodation before you arrive in Skövde.

The University of Skövde is located near the city centre. The accommodation alternatives that are offered to our exchange students are located within 15 minutes from the university.

If you like to apply for accommodation at any of our three accommodation areas, please fill out and submit the form in connection with your application to the University.

We will handle your application for accommodation when you are admitted to the University of Skövde. This means that we will not consider your application unless we have received all your documents.

Due to shortage of accommodation, you must be prepared to share a room and that we cannot guarantee your first choice. If this reply form is not returned in time we will assume that you do not wish help with accommodation and that you will make arrangements for housing on your own.

All students will be contacted and informed about where they will be living after they have been admitted to exchange studies at the University of Skövde.

If you do not accept the offered room or if we have not received your "Application for Accommodation" in time we will assume that you will arrange your accommodation on your own. Unfortunately we will not be able to assist students who want to make their own housing arrangements.

Accommodation areas

We currently offer you accommodation at the following accommodation areas:

Telephone

There are no fixed phone connections at the housing alternatives. It is advisable to bring along your own mobile/GSM cellular phone. For more information on phones see the Student Guide.
