Student accommodation

You need to apply for accommodation yourself. Please remember to do so in good time before your arrival. The University of Gävle does not provide any student accommodation.

How to apply for student accommodation

Moving to Sweden

If you are a non-EU citizen you need to apply for a residence permit. Start the process of applying for a residence permit as soon as possible. This can be a slow process and take several months. It is therefore good to get started as soon as possible!

If you are moving to Sweden from abroad and are planning to live in Sweden for one year or more, you are generally required to be registered in the Swedish Population Register
