How the student housing queue works

You can register as a customer with Boplats Växjö starting the year you turn 17. To create an account, go to the start page and then click on “Create account”. Your time in the queue will start to be counted as soon as you have registered as a customer, and this time period will be valid for either of the housing companies Växjöbostäder AB or Vidingehem AB. You will receive one queue point for each day you are in the queue. The student housing queue does not have a fee. When you register for the student housing queue, you will be automatically registered for one year in the family housing queue with no fee. We provide this as an extra benefit for our students who wish to continue living in Växjö after completing their studies. If you do not want to be in the family housing queue, you can disregard the invoice when it is sent out; you will then be automatically removed.

To qualify for a student residence, you must have an active notice of admission to Linnaeus University or Vocational college and be actively studying at the Växjö location. This means that you cannot be studying remotely or via the internet. You must have at least 15 college course units per term. You can live in a student residence for a maximum of 6 years.

We recommend that you log in once every six months to check and ensure that your information is still valid, and so that you can be notified of important information. After your registration, you will receive a verification e-mail. It is important that you follow the instructions in this e-mail so that we can send you information.

Preferences

You can choose which flats and residential zones you are interested in by specifying your preferences in “My Profiles”, under the “My Pages” tab. When a flat that is in keeping with your preferences becomes available, you will receive a suggestion e-mail. If you did not provide an e-mail address, you must log in on My Pages in order to see your offers.

My Pages

Here, you can edit your profile and see suggestions for flats that are in keeping with your preferences. You can also register your interest in properties, view earlier registrations of interest, and answer “yes” or “no” to the offers you receive.

Registering your interest

In the student housing queue, you can register your interest in locations starting the year that you turn 17, provided that you have received an admission notice from Linnaeus University in Växjö. You can make three registrations of interest at a time. If you then want to register for another flat, you must remove one of the registrations of interest that you have made.

To register your interest, log in with My Pages and select the flat in question. Click on “Register my interest” and fill out your information. You can make three registrations of interest at a time. If you are offered several flats at the same time, you can select the option for 1st, 2nd or 3rd choice to prioritise which flat you most want. This is an individual choice, and does not affect your place in the queue for each respective flat. In the student housing queue, the three applicants with the highest point total will be offered a visit to the desired housing. When you sign a rental contract, your points will be zeroed.

Offers

When the time for responding has ended, the housing company will contact the person who has the most queue points in the Student Market or the person who was the first to register in Student Direct. If you receive a flat via the Student Market, your queue points will be zeroed. However, if you obtain a flat via Student Direkt, your time in the queue will be retained. A message will be sent to you if you did not receive the flat that you said “yes” to. You are naturally welcome to re-apply.

Student Market

Here, flats are presented for everyone and distributed according to queue points. To see available flats, click on “Search housing” and then choose “Student Market”. If you are interested in a unit, you can register your interest in it. Normally, flats are posted for a period of eight days. In this queue, the three applicants with the most queue points will be offered to visit the housing.

You can make additional registrations of interest when earlier applications have been closed.  To register your interest, log in with My Pages and select the flat in question. Click on “Register my interest” and fill out your information.  If you are offered a flat and sign a rental agreement, you must reactivate yourself in the student housing queue in order to continue collecting queue points.

Student Direct

Flats that are available for fast move-in are presented here. To see available flats, click on “Search housing” and then choose “Student Direct”. In this queue, the first three people to register their interest will be able to visit the housing and the object is closed for further applicants.

No queue points are required, and you will not lose your points if you say “yes”. If more than one person says “yes”, then the residence will be offered to the person who first registered his/her interest.

New buildings

Newly finished flats are displayed in “New Building Market” and “New Buildings Direct”. To see available flats, click on “Search housing” and then choose “New Building Market” or “New Buildings Direct”.  You can register your interest five times. You will not remain on the housing queue if you obtain a flat via the New Building Market; however, your queue time will not be affected if you obtain a flat via New Buildings Direct.

Parking space

To rent a parking space, click the “Activate” button in “My Profile” on the “My Pages” tab. The button will become visible once you have an active rental agreement. The customer with the most queue points will be offered an open parking space. The waiting period for the parking space queue only applies to the residential zone that you live in. If you move to another residential zone, your queue points will be zeroed, and you must reactivate yourself in the parking space queue.

Priority

No priority is given in the housing queue. The housing companies issue Växjö Municipality a certain quota of flats that can be given to residents with specific accessibility- or socioeconomic needs.

We welcome your questions!

If you have questions about the municipal housing queue, there is a contact centre that can be reached by telephone or e-mail, or visited in person. You can find contact information at the bottom of this page.

If you are searching for housing and have questions about a specific flat, contact the housing company — Växjöbostäder or Vidingehem — that is renting out the flat.
