This page is for those of you who have applied to Chalmers University of Technology for the first time. Before the start of the fall term, we set aside and earmark about 100 apartments that we offer to students who have never been tenants at Chalmers Studentbostäder, never studied at Chalmers University of Technology and are newly admitted at Chalmers. But how do I become a tenant? Who gets an apartment? When can I move in? We understand that you might have a lot of questions and we have tried to answer them all on this page!

Our apartments

We have 2 382 apartments. To rent one of them, you will need to be an active student at Chalmers University of Technology or the University of Gothenburg and a member of a student union. You can be a tenant with us for a maximum of six years.

We appoint apartments every week, all year round. Make sure you hold a place in our housing queue and apply for the available apartments that we publish continuously.

Why only Students at Chalmers?

We have been commissioned by our founders to earmark 100 apartments for newly appointed students at Chalmers before each autumn term.

How is the selection made?

We use a random selection of individuals from a list we receive from Chalmers University of Technology over admitted students who have not previously been enrolled at the university in combination with individuals who are in our queue. We appoint apartments until we have filled the quota of approximately 100 apartments. This means that we will not take any queue points into account but focus on whether you are new at Chalmers or not.

How do I express interest?

In order to have a chance to get one of the apartments for newly admitted at Chalmers, you need to send an email to

It is important that your email is from the same email address you have registered on My Pages. If you send from another email address, we will not be able to match your email address and your application will not be handled.

When can I express an interest?

You can do it today. The last day to express interest is 2022-07-31.

What if I have special requirements?

Special requirements are handled separately. Please send an email to us at and attach a doctor’s note or equivalent and we will do our best to cater to your needs.  

What type of apartments are earmarked?

They are all studio apartments with a monthly rent that doesn’t exceed 5200 SEK.

In which areas are these apartments found?

Most of them will be on Gibraltargatan, on Kemivägen and Rännvägen or on Kapellgången.

Can I influence the selection in any way?

No, sorry. You cannot influence the selection in any way.

When will the apartments be assigned to their tenants?

The list of admitted students to Chalmers will be made available to us in the first days of August. We will start our process as soon as possible after that.

How do I know if I get an apartment?

We will send you an email. Please ensure that your contact details are correct and updated under the internal my pages. Also make sure to check your trash in order to not miss any of our emails.

Will there be any open viewings of the apartments?

Unfortunately, there will not be any viewings.

Do I need to be a member of the Student Union?

You need a Student union membership to be a tenant, however, we understand that during the first weeks of the term there may be days where you are not a member yet. Just make sure to pay your membership fee as soon as you get your invoice. It will not affect your chances of getting an offer.

When can I move in?

Access to the apartments and moving in take place every week. Which week it will be in your case is too early to say. We estimate that all of the apartments will be available for moving in from mid-August to beginning of October.

Do I keep my queue date if I get an apartment?

Unfortunately, your queue date will be erased if you get an apartment. You will need to activate the queue again.

Which documents do I need to provide?

“Antagningsbesked från Chalmers för Hösten 2022” – “Letter of admission to Chalmers University of Technology for the Fall Term 2022”. Do not send us any documents in advance. You will be asked to upload it when signing a contract online.
