The city of Gothenburg is a popular place to study which means that there is a very high demand for rooms. For the same reason it's very difficult to find housing, especially in the central parts of the city. You must be prepared to commute up to one hour from Chalmers. You are expected to search actively yourself, which means that you must put yourself in the queue systems for the housing agencies. It's important that you don't wait until the last minute, start looking for accommodation as soon as possible.
If you haven't found a place to stay before you arrive in Gothenburg it's important that you contact our municipal housing agency, Boplats Göteborg, to start your search for an accommodation. Until you have found a permanent place to live, you will have to arrange for a temporary accommodation such as a hostel or hotel by yourself.
Chalmers has agreements with the housing agencies SGS Studentbostäder and Chalmers studentbostäder, and also a collaboration with the city of Gothenburg's municipal housing agency, Boplats Göteborg. Make sure to apply directly to each of these agencies. You'll find more detailed information on the links below.
