How and when to pay your rent

The rent has to be on the landlords account on the 1st every month. If you pay from Sweden, pay your invoice on the 25th every month. The rent has to be paid in advance, for the month to come. For example:  The rent for September should be paid on Aug 25th at the latest. However, if you make an international transaction it might take more than 5 banking days to do the transfer. Add some extra days.


What if I arrive late in the month when my contract starts? You still have to pay the rent for the full month. Our contracts run from the 1st of the month to the 1st of the month your are leaving. Exception is the month of June when our contracts ends on June 20th as we need the rooms for LIU summer Academy.


What is included in the rent? Electricity, internet, heating, water, furniture and home insurance is included in the rent.

  • Fee paying programme students renting a student housing for four semesters (almost two years), have both June and July for free the first summer, and the 20 days in June the second summer.
