Student housing agencies contracted by Chalmers
Boplats is the main portal for rental housing in Gothenburg, where international students may search for private rooms and sublet apartments. Staff from Boplats will be available between certain dates during the summer to provide support and assist students without housing priority in their search for a room
Applying for student housing
Master's students paying tuition fees, scholarship students, exchange students within the World Wide, Nordic 5 Tech, NCTU, UNITECH, Erasmus Mundus, Double Degree and Linnaeus-Palme programmes
Chalmers guarantees accommodation for international students who pay tuition fees, scholarship students and students within a few or our exchange programmes. Soon after the last day to accept your admissions offer information about how and when to apply for housing will be sent to you by email from Chalmers Student Centre.
You will be offered accommodation and the guarantee is only valid if you apply for accommodation during the time slot stated in our offer. Student housing can either be a one-room apartment or a single room with shared kitchen, this means that the offer you receive from Chalmers is limited to one person.
Master's students not paying tuition fees and Erasmus students
Chalmers has agreements with SGS Studentbostäder, Chalmers Studentbostäder and a collaboraton with Gothenburg's official housing agency (Boplats).
Make sure to apply directly to each of these agencies. All administration - i.e. contracts, keys, payment - are handled by the housing agencies, not by Chalmers. Applications for accomodation are submitted online. Chalmers cannot give housing guarantee to these student categories.
Nevertheless, during the summer, staff from Boplats Göteborg will provide support and assist these students in their search for a room. The Boplats coordinators will be availble only between certain dates during the summer.
