Getting started

Survival Tour

Under the banner Survival Tour Studentboet and our affiliates organize different events to facilitate the housing situation for the students. Our partners are Uppsala University Housing Office (UUHO), Hyresgästföreningen Uppsala Studentbostäder (HUS) and The events will be published in the calendar below and also at our Facebook-pages Studentboet and Studentboet ads/annonser.


Emergency housing

During the fall semester Studentboet organize Emergency housing for those students who have not yet found a place to live. We rent beds at a hostel which students can apply for and book at a reduced price. The price includes breakfast in the hostel and free wifi. You bring your own bedding, but if you don’t have any you can rent it from the hostel.

Emergency accommodation is arranged for one to two months depending on demand. Do you want to apply for emergency accommodation? The application is activated prior to each fall semester, normally in the beginning of August. This will also be announced at our Facebook-pages Studentboet and Studentboet ads/annonser, so keep an eye out! If you have any questions you can always contact us directly.

Apply for emergency accommodation under Emergency Housing on the menu to the left!
