The University of Skövde welcomes many degree seeking and exchange students each semester and most of them need our help in finding accommodation. This means that it is necessary to remember the deadlines and apply as early as possible.
The University of Skövde is located near the city centre. The accommodation alternatives that are offered to our exchange students are located within 30 minutes from the university.
If you would like to apply for accommodation at any of our three accommodation areas (listed below), 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 a shortage of accommodation, you must be prepared to accept a room within 30 minutes distance and that we cannot guarantee your first choice.
You will not receive confirmation of your application, but all students will be contacted in late June/November and informed about where they will stay, after they have been admitted to 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.
