LU Accommodation

LU Accommodation is a part of Student Services at Lund University. The main task is to accommodate international students during their time at Lund University. LU Accommodation manages a limited number of rooms and flats in Lund, Malmö and Helsingborg.

There is a great demand for housing and unfortunately we are not able to guarantee housing for all international students.

Problems in your room?

Please find your housing area for more information about how to make a fault report.

How do I extend my lease period?

You need to send an email (from the email address you have registered with LU accommodation) to requesting an extension of your housing contract up until either the 31st January 2015 or 15th June 2015.

Deadline for extension: Thursday 23rd October 

The email (with a copy of your Letter of Acceptance etc.) must be received by LU Accommodation on or before Thursday 23rd October 2014.

Please be aware that extension requests cannot be made at our receptions desk as they must be made in writing and sent from the email address you have registered with LU accommodation.

Extensions can only be made for the following periods:

  • From 2nd January 2015 up to and including the 31st January 2015.
  • From 2nd January 2015 up to and including the 15th of June 2015.

This means that the minimum extension period will be until the 31st January 2015. This also means that the maximum extension period will be until the 15th of June 2015.

Please note that information regarding any possible extension period past the 15th June 2015 will be sent to tenants during the Spring of 2015.

Only tenants who are students of Lund University during the Spring semester of 2015 can extend their housing contract. This means that in order to continue renting your room past the 1st January 2015 you will need to be able to provide us with a letter of acceptance, notification of selection results or any similar document that shows that you are a student at Lund University during the Spring of 2015.

Extensions for the full Spring 2015 term until the 15th June 2015 can of course be shortened with the standard three calendar months’ notice

If you are a tuition fee paying master student you will initially be offered a contract for one or two semester that you later have to extend to keep your housing guarantee. The housing guarantee is only valid if you have a continuous housing contract for the full duration of your study period (including sommer 2015). Read more about the terms and conditions for housing guarantee here.
