Housing in Luleå for non exchange students and for students bringing their partner and/or child(ren)

Luleå University of Technology provides accommodation for all exchange students, however they are all single bed student accommodations and not suitable for more than one person. We can also not provide accommodation for anyone who will not be an exchange student at LTU.

If this applies to you, you need to find a suitable accommodation on your own. In this post you find some information and recomendations regarding this.

On campus we have two landlords that offer student accommodations, Lindbäcks Fastigheter AB and Lulebo AB. Lulebo offers dorm rooms where you are only allowed to stay one person and unfurnished apartments. Lindbäcks have furnished single bed apartments in varying sizes up to 37,5 sqm. In the largest ones 28 sqm and 37,5 sqm it is possible to put in an extra bed at your own expense, it will be very tight but maybe okay for a limited time. Lulebo and Lindbäcks also have larger unfurnished apartments. See their websites for more details.

My second recommendation and especially if one of you is not a student is to look off campus. Linas Fastigheter is a landlord that specializes in furnished apartments for short term stays. We have had students with partner and children stay with them in the past. They have apartments in the city center with good communication by bus to the university. There are buses every 10-15 minutes and it takes 15 minutes one way.

I recommend you to signup and apply as early as possible. To apply for a student accommodation you need to be accepted as a student at LTU but you can signup on their websites and put yourself in line years in advance. Once you have been accepted you can start applying for accommodation actively. With non-student accommodations there is of course no limit to how early you can apply.

It is also possible to sublease an apartment. You can find such offerings at Blocket.se and Mystudentstore.se. Since these websites are in Swedish and you probably won't have the possibility to see the apartment before signing it is not an option I recommend for exchange students unfamiliar with Swedish and Sweden.

No, you are on your own. We only help exchange students and in some cases international master students.
