Accommodation and Arrival

Guaranteed Accommodation

All new international students are guaranteed accommodation, provided that they apply for accommodation correctly and announce their arrival in time. The guarantee only applies to the admitted student at Jönköping University,family members are not included in the guarantee.


Your username and password will be sent to you  shortly after you have been admitted to Jönköping University. The application will open March 7, 2016.

Please note that you also have to announce your arrival to complete your accommodation application. The Arrival announcement will be open from July 1 to July 20, 2016.

Please note that accommodation is not included in the tuition fee.

The Accommodation Office recommends new arriving international students to apply for housing through the University and make use of the accommodation guarantee. There is a general housing shortage in Jönköping, hence, in competition with Swedish students it can be difficult to find housing by yourself.

Important information
Most landlords requires students to pay rent for the whole semester in one installment during the first weeks after arrival.

Students will be presented with accommodation upon arrival; unfortunately the accommodation office will be unable to provide this information in advance. This is due to the fact that administrative changes can sometimes be made until the final days before the students arrive.

Under certain circumstances students will be offered accommodation alternatives different from those listed in the accommodation and arrival application.
