Housing services

International students coming to study at University West are offered accommodation arranged by the municipal landlord Eidar Housing AB and the private landlord Hammar Nordic AB in cooperation with University West. Since the number of student rooms is limited, we cannot guarantee a place for everybody beforehand.
