Finding accommodation in Göteborg


We have a special section with ads for rooms intended for international students. The rooms are advertised by private landlords, and you apply to them directly through the website.
You need to register at but you do not have to pay the fee. You find the rooms using the regular search tool, selecting "Rooms" under "Search ads".

Regular apartments

If you are staying for more than a year, you will want to register and pay the fee and apply for regular apartments as well.

Housing coordinators
