In that case, we wish you a big congratulations on your acceptance letter!

Chalmers student housing are aware that as a new student there can be a lot of questions at the start of the semester. Therefore, we have collected some tips that may be good to think about both as a new student and as a tenant with us.

Register in our housing queue

Do not forget to register in our housing queue.. You start collecting points in our housing queue from the day you create an account on our website. We publish available apartments here, usually on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You can find more information about our housing queue here.

Activate your membership in the student union

When you start studying, it is important that you activate your union membership at Chalmers or Gothenburg University. Union membership gives you, as a student, several benefits such as access to student discounts through Mecenat or the student card. In addition, it is important that you have an active union membership in our housing queue as it is required to accumulate points. As a student at Chalmers you collect 2 points per day and as a student at Gothenburg University 1 point per day.
