Byggvesta is the housing company that owns Colonia, a student complex on Campus Valla. Flat sizes are between 25 and 43 square meters and the rent is between SEK 4,548 and 6,252/month. Colonia is student-led and arranges activity teams to help international students interact with Swedish people and culture.
As student rooms are only available for full calendar months, you might want to check in at a youth hostel first (vandrarhem).
Make sure that you reach an agreement with the hostel regarding when and how to pick up your key if you arrive late in the evening. Remember to bring your own bed sheets or you will have to pay extra. It might be difficult to get a room right before the semester starts so make sure you book well in advance!
