Coming exchange students

Kalmarhem collaborates with Linnaeus university. If you have been accepted to an exchange semester at LNU, Kalmarhem will help you with a student accommodation. Please contact Linnaeus university to confirm that you are covered by this agreement.

After receiving information of your acceptance from Linnaeus university, we will send you an offer for a student housing. This will be sent to the email address that you have registered at Linnaeus University. 

Coming international students

In connection to the fall semester start at Linnaeus University's, we offer new student who meet the requirements below a student housing guarantee in Kalmar.



• You should be newly admitted to at least 30 credits / semester at Linnaeus University, Kalmar campus.
• You should not have studied at Kalmar University / Linnaeus University earlier.
• You should be active in searching student housing at Kalmarhem student web.
• You should not be registered or stay in Kalmar municipality. 

• You shall have a civic registration number that contains 12 digits.

The student guarantee means that Kalmarhem guarantees you an offer of student housing if you have not managed to find anything after two months of active search. The offer may include accommodation center in Kalmar, outer area or in one of the neighboring municipalities.

You may be offered a part in a larger apartment. If you decline an offer the student warranty is consumed.

Register yourself at www.kalmarhem.se. Kalmarhem will publish student housing on the webpage and you need to apply for at least one of these accommodations every week until you receive an offer.  If you are not active in your search you will lose your student housing guarantee.

If you do not meet up to these requirement you will not be able to apply for student housing via Kalmarhem until the student housing guarantee is completed in late September/October. Remember that Kalmarhem is not the sole owner of student housing. To be sure you get what you want we recommend you broaden your search by also contacting other property owners in the municipality.
