More detailed information about the nations' housing and their queueing system can be found at www.uppsalastudent.com.

Uppsalas student nations own about a third of all student housing in Uppsala. Please note that even if a membership in one of Uppsala's nations, grant you access to all nations' activities, you can only apply for housing in that specific nation. So keep that in mind when you choose which nation, or what nations, you will join.

The application rules and other contract details can differ from nation to nation. Some nation have a large number of housing and others, have a small stock. This will affect how fast you can get housing from the nation you choose. In general the queueing time is shorter with the nations' housing than with the conventional housing companies. So, it is a good idea to join all housing queues, both conventional and nation ones.  

 

Five questions about nation housing

What are the basic requirements to live in the nations' housing?

To live in the nations' housing you need to fullfill two main requirements: 1. You need to be a member of the nation that owns the housing. 2. You need to be an "active" student (what "active" student means can vary from nation to nation, but normally this means that you should study fulltime at Uppsala University or SLU). The nation's housing foundation will do regular inspections to check that you fullfill the requirements, so make sure you know what terms are stated in your contract.

What nations have special housing reserved for 'recentiorer' (new student) at the beginning of the semester?  

Västmanlands-Dala nation, Kalmar nation and Gotlands nation.

 

At what nations is it most likely for a new student to get offered a housing contract?

The queueing time is affected by the size of the housing stock of the nation and also by the amount of students that finish their studies that particular semester and thus move somewhere else. So it varies from semester to semester, how long the queueing time is. In recent semesters, Snerikes (Södermanland-Nerikes) nation, Västmanlands-Dala nation, Uplands nation, Gästrike-Hälsinge nation and Gotlands nation have had a tendency to have shorter queueing times than the other nations.  

 

Uppsala's 13 nationer

General information

The nations offers many types of housing, e. g. corridor rooms, double rooms, triple rooms, smaller apartments and bigger apartments for families and for friends sharing. Some nations have rules that states that you need to have been a member of the nation for a certain amount of semester before you can apply for the more attractive housing, such as the apartments. So, double check what rules applies at your nation.  

The rent for a corridor room is between 2500 and 3500 SEK. For some of the nations' housing, especially the corridor rooms, you only have to pay rent 10 months a year, normally June and July are rent free. The rent for the apartments vary due to size and age. Normally the nation housing foundations aim to keep the rents on a low level for all students to afford.
