Housing in Umea City

Are you coming to Ume�� University as an International Student (Free Mover) ?

Beware! There are very very few student rooms available in Ume�� City. Also Ume�� University shows very little interest in arranging housing for International Students. (Not Exchange Students). So you have to find your housing...though University claims that we arrange Housing for International Students too. As Ume�� University has 25,000 and more student...its tough for new comer to find housing in Ume�� City...

There is company called Bostaden in Ume�� City which arranges accomodation for students also.... Beware...Its illusive...Bosatden website shows many student housing apartments, but to get one it might take one year....

Please try to arrange some accommodation before coming to Ume�� otherwise you will be frustrated and it will be hard to pay attention towards your studies.

I am sure, you will come to Ume�� mainly for studies and now to look for housing all the time.

Best luck !

Really? Is it the same with Umea Institute Of Design? I'm planning to apply there this year. What should I do with the housing accommodation if that of course, if i get accepted there.

There seems to often be problems for all students to find accommodation especialli in the autumn. Therefore there is a emergency accommodation group to help the students. Check it out http://www.kfum.nu/01_akutrumeng.php

Good luck
