Important information and guidance on how to find accommodation in Halmstad.

To consider

It can be difficult at the beginning of the semester to get a place to live. When you have received your admission notice, start looking for accommodation as soon as possible - before your arrival.

Here we have compiled a list of landlords in Halmstad who rent to students and where you can find ads for accommodations.

It's important that you contact the landlord yourself, we can't do it for you. 

It can be a good idea to take the first you are offered, and then find accommodation that suits you once you are in place. 

Also search in the neighboring municipalities Falkenberg and Laholm where there are good train connections.

Things to consider before moving in

Some things to keep in mind when moving in: contract, rent and notice period. If you want to know more about what it's like to live in Sweden as a student, check out Study in Sweden is a website provided by the Swedish Institute.


The contract between you and the landlord is legally binding, therefore it is important that you read the contract carefully and ask if there is anything that is unclear before you sign.

Some appartments are furnisched and some are not, make sure this is stated in the contract.

Notice period

In Sweden, we have regulated through the law the practice of notice period of 3 months. That is, you must notify the landlord in writing that you are moving out, 3 months before the moving-out date. That means 3 full calendar months, for example if you are planning on moving out on 30th of June, you must cancel the accommodation before 31st of March.


The rent in Sweden is usually between 4000 to 8000 SEK for an apartment with a room and a kitchen. Depending on what is included and how big the accommodation is in square meters. 
Usually, electricity, water and heating are included in a rental apartment, however, the cost of household electricity and internet may be added. Therefore, expect a cost for housing of about 6000-10.000 SEK.

Some landlords also want a deposit that you get back when you have moved out, provided that everything is ok with the accommodation.OBS. Never pay the deposit before you have seen the accommodation. 

The rent is paid before the month begins, for example if you move in on 1st of September, the rent must be paid before 31st of August.
