There are seven student halls of residence in Helsingborg. All of them require that applicants have been admitted to a university or college, and you will be required to provide your letter of acceptance to support this. You don’t have to attend a course given on campus in Helsingborg, although certain accommodation providers reserve their right to prioritise students at Campus Helsingborg specifically.
Below you can find links to each landlord’s website with information about the housing and how to apply (most unfortunately available in Swedish only). Most of the accommodation in these student homes are around 25 sqm and designed to have one student living in them. Rent is approximately 4000 SEK/month, but both size and rent varies per landlord and building:

Båstad campus (in Båstad)
If you’re an international student, you can apply for accommodation via LU Accommodation, a part of Lund University that offers accommodation for international students. LU Accommodation offers a limited number of rooms and apartments in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö, and as there is high demand for accommodation they cannot guarantee accommodation for all international students. If you are coming from a non-EU/EEA country and are paying tuition fees you have a housing guarantee.
For more information, visit LU Accommodation here.
If you are unable or don’t want to live in a student apartment, there are other housing options. We have compiled a list of other housing operators below; and as there is no collective queuing system in the city, you have to check with each individual property owner to see what is available. Links to some of the larger property owners in Helsingborg and the surrounding area (in Swedish mainly):
Boplats syd (translate to language of your choice at the top of the page)
Helsingborgshem (translate to language of your choice at the bottom of the page)
Ikano bostad (translate to language of your choice at the top of the page)
It is also a good idea to look at other housing options, since the demand for apartments in the student homes is high at the start of the semester. Subletted rooms or apartments can be a good option where you can rent a room, and apartment or share accommodation with other students.
To find ads, a good place to start is to join the Facebook group “Student I Helsingborg och letar lägenhet” (“student in Helsingborg and looking for housing”). We also list available subletted rooms/apartments here on our webpage (list in Swedish but some ads in English).
Some other good sites when looking for subletted housing are:
These websites are solely providers of accommodation advertisements and assumes no liability for the actual rental situation, which is an agreement between landlord and tenant. As many advertisements are written in Swedish; if you have any problems understanding the text, send an email or phone the number in the advertisement and it will probably be fine to communicate in English.
Be aware of fraudsters in the housing market, we recommend that you refer to Bopoolen’s checklist for advice and warning signs.
If you have questions about accommodation that cannot be answered on our website, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
