Accommodation guide

The Student Union does not have any advantages in getting you a place to stay. Unfortunately, we cannot help you in any other way than to tell you how to get an apartment the easiest way.

The accommodation situation in Jönköping is pressing, but nothing is impossible! All it takes is persistence and a will to not give up.

The Student Union recommends that Studboexternal link, opens in new window, which is an accommodation portal for those who are currently or will become students at Jönköping University, be your first port of call. You can also find advertisements posted by private landlords on the Jönköping Student Union website under the ‘Student perks’ tab.

It is also recommended that you join the Facebook group ‘Lediga lägenheter i Jönköping’external link, opens in new window, and search for ads on websites such as blocket.se, which has a separate page for accommodation ads.

At the start of the semester, temporary accommodation, located near to Jönköping University, is available for those who do not have any accommodation or who can only move in after the beginning of the semester but wish to participate in events. If you are lucky, a ‘fadder’ or classmate might be able to rent part of their accommodation to you, or offer a couch for a short period.

Couch list

Do you have some extra space that could fit a student sleeping for a few nights? Please answer the formula below and we can help another student in need to find a temporary location to stay at. If you are looking for a place to stay, please fill the formula as well and we will try to match you with a person who can offer a couch or similar for a short period of time.

Things to consider

When you are looking for an apartment, you might need to widen your search! In order to increase your likelihood of finding accommodation, consider the area outside of the city centre. You should also be prepared to accept temporary accommodation, and settle for a sublease at first.
