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.


Your username and password will be sent to you  shortly after you have been admitted to Jönköping University. The application will open October 12, 2015.

Please note that you also have to announce your arrival to complete your accommodation application. The Arrival announcement is open from December 1 to December 18, 2015.

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.

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.

Jönköping University is located in the City Centre. The accommodation alternatives that are offered to international students are all located within 30 minutes travel by public transport from the university.

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