Most students who study at Malmö University need to arrange their own housing. Since there's a lack of student accommodation, we strongly recommend students to look for housing even before they are accepted.
Malmö has no dormitory buildings on campus, the approximately 2,000 student apartments are scattered across town. The majority are separate apartments but there are also a few dormitories. Rent can vary, but most are between SEK 3,400 - 4,500 per month.
The different student houses are presented in our guide. There you can also find information about how to apply for an apartment at various locations.

NOTE! It can be very hard to get a student apartment - it's important to start looking as soon as possible! If you don't have a Swedish "personnummer" (social security number) fill in your date of birth when you make your applications. Fill in 'xxxx' instead of numbers for the four extra digits at the end.
Today, most student apartments are only available through the housing agency Boplats Syd. How quickly you get an apartment offer is based on how long you have been in the queue, therefore, it is wise to register early. It can take between 1-6 months to get an offer on a student apartment.
