The University is located close to the city centre, and the accommodation areas are all located within 30 minutes from the University. There are furnished single rooms in student dormitories, the rental cost of which amounts to around SEK 4,000 per month.
General Description of a Student Dormitory Room
There are a limited number of furnished rooms, with either a private shower/toilet or access to shared showers/toilets. A deposit is normally required. Electricity, heating, water, a pillow and blanket, and internet access are normally included in the rental cost for the furnished room.
The living room and kitchen are shared by a number of students, and you are all responsible for looking after and keeping these areas clean. There will often be access to a laundry room with washing machines, tumble dryers, etc. Most laundry facilities can be used free of charge. Please also note that pets are not permitted in student housing.
At least two weeks before you leave Skövde, an appointment must be made with the landlord for the inspection of your room. It is important that the room is thoroughly cleaned.
Apply for Accommodation
If you would like to apply for accommodation at any of our four accommodation areas (listed below), please fill out and submit the form on this page in connection with your application to the University.
We currently offer accommodation (single rooms) in the following accommodation areas:
We will process your application for accommodation once you have been 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 a distance of 30 minutes from the University, and we cannot guarantee you will receive 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 personally arrange your own accommodation.
Unfortunately we will not be able to assist students who want to make their own housing arrangements. You can contact Skövdebostäder, the municipal housing company, or the rental housing companies in Skövde (at skovde.se).
It is possible to subscribe to a broadband internet connection in your room after your arrival at Skövde. In Xenia, Perenius and Hasslum, internet access is included in the rent.
At Norra Trängallén, you must pay SEK 400 per semester for internet access.
If you should have any questions about your room, payment or key collection, please contact the landlords:
