During the fall, Studentboet organizes Emergency Housing for students who have not yet found accommodation. The Emergency Housing offers students looking for housing a possibility to receive subsidized prices at a hostel in Uppsala. The beds are administered by Studentboet, and therefore come at a cheaper price than one would get by booking directly. The Emergency Housing is located at the hostel Hotell och vandrarhem Centralstation, located next to the central station in Uppsala.
HOW AND WHEN CAN YOU BOOK A BED?
The emergency housing application form will open on the 10th of August for the fall semester of 2020.
It is NOT POSSIBLE to make a reservation for a bed before that time!
To apply interest for a bed, sign in at www.studentboet.se. The form will open and be available at THIS PAGE from the 10th of August. The emergency housing will close on the 4th of October.
DURING WHAT PERIOD CAN YOU BOOK EMERGENCY HOUSING?
The Emergency Housing will be open beteeen the 24th of August and the 4th of October. If the need arises the project may be extended.
WHERE IS THE EMERGENCY HOUSING - ABOUT THE HOSTEL
The Emergency Housing will be located at the hostel Hotell och vandrarhem Centralstation which is situated very close to the cental station, at Bangårdsgatan 13. At first, 28 beds will be offered at the hostel and later on, we will adjust the amount of beds to suit the demand. Foremost, the beds offered will be in two bed-rooms, but other types of room can also be offered if needed. You will not share the room with others due to covid-19.
REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR OWN LINEN AND A TOWEL TO THE HOSTEL!
If you don't have linen or a towel, you can rent this from the hostel for 75 SEK. A breakfast buffet is included in the price of the bed.
The hostel has shared showers and an equipped kitchen to be used by the guests. There are also laundry facilities at the hostel. Smoking and parties are not allowed.
