The University is located near the city center, and the accommodation areas are all located within 30 minutes distance from the University. There are furnished single rooms (houses one person) in the student dormitory and the rental cost for such a room is about 4000 SEK per month.
General Description of a Student Dormitory Room
There are a limited number of furnished rooms with private shower/toilet or with shared showers/toilets. A deposit is normally required. Electricity, heat, water, a pillow and a 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 those areas clean. Often there is access to a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers. Most laundry facilities can be used free of charge. Please notice that you cannot bring pets to the student housing. At least two weeks before leaving 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 in connection with your application to the University.
Application form for accomodation
We currently offer accommodation (single rooms) in the following accommodation areas:
- Norra Trängallén
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. 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 in Skövde. In Xenia, Perenius and Hasslum internet access is included in the rent. At Norra Trängallén, you pay 400 SEK per semester for internet access.
