Searching for housing

Boplats Växjö is the municipal housing agency for those looking for housing in the Växjö area. Boplats Växjö has two different housing queues; one for apartments (which we call the housing queue) and one for student apartments (the student housing queue). The housing queue costs 100 SEK per year from the year you turn 20. You can register from the year you turn 17. The student housing queue is free of charge.

Once you've created an account and paid the fee, you can start searching for housing. You will begin collecting queue points from the day you register.

My pages (Mina sidor)

On "My pages" External link. you can see your current number of queue points, edit your profile and accesss your subscription settings. You can also submit new applications, see your previous applications and accept or decline offers.

Queue points

Your queue points are specific to you and cannot be combined with someone else's points or transferred to another person.

Things to consider:

  • If you are in the housing queue and sign a lease, you will automatically be reactivated in the housing queue. Your points will be recalculated based on the points of the applicants behind you in the queue.
  • If you sign a lease for student housing, your points will be reset to zero and you will need to re-register for the student housing queue to begin collecting points again.
  • If you sign a lease via Direkt, your queue points will not be affected and you do not need to re-register for the queue.


The fee for the housing queue is 100 SEK per year from the year you turn 20 years old.

The student housing queue is free of charge, regardless of your age.

Apartment applications

If you have submitted an application for an apartment, a final date will be presented where you must answer yes or no. The apartment offer is valid for at least five days. It is important that you accept or decline within this timeframe.


A co-applicant is a person who intends to live in the housing unit together with the main applicant. Spouses/partners, prospective partners and siblings can be approved as co-applicants. If either applicant submits an application that leads to a lease agreement, both applicants will be on the lease.

You can add a co-applicant by going to "My applications", then "Co-applicant" and clicking on "New co-applicant". The co-applicant also needs to be registered as an applicant in order to be linked as a co-applicant.

  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • If needed, provide acceptable proof of a cosigner agreement.
  • Display a history of paying rent on time and without rent arrears.
