When applying or planning to apply to Luleå Technical University it is a good idea to be placed in queue for housing. At the Student Housing Exchange your application will be pending until you have been accepted to the school. When you confirm that you have been accepted your application will be activated in the queue. The time pending will be included in your total queue-time, which improves your chances of receiving housing quickly.
The Lulebo Housing Exchange consists of a web site where you register a personal page and then can view available apartments. You will not automatically be awarded an apartment, so you will have to enter the web site and actively apply for the available objects. The apartments are allocated based on queue time.
Students under the age of 29 and students with children can in some cases benefit from housing grants trough the Social Insurance Administration.
