Post to former tenant

When you move into your student accommodation, you might find post to the former tenant. Do the following:

  • Make a cross over the name and address
  • Draw an arrow pointing at the senders address
  • Put it in the nearest yellow mail box (a box for sending) and the post will return it to the sender.

Receiving packages

  • If you order a package to your address where you live you, will get a paper note in your letterbox, saying when and where to pick up the package. If you give them your mobile number, they will probably send you a text message with the same information. Bring your passport or ID when picking up your package. There are different delivery points depending on where you live and the shipping company. 
  • Advertisements in your letter box you can just throw away.

Home insurance

As a student you need insurance to protect your home and your belongings. Länsförsäkringar Östgöta, Studentbostäder, Studentbo have therefore joined forces to offer you a good home insurance policy. See link for more information. 


Heimstaden: Washing powder and softener is for free when using the laundry facilities. Tenants renting a room from LiU can only use the laundry rooms in the basement of Ryds Allé 9, there you find a booking board. Hold your black tag towards the reader and make the booking.

Studentbostäder: Washing powder and softener is for free when using the laundry facilities. Visit www.studentbostader.se and go to "My pages" to make a booking. 

If you can not book the laundry via My pages at www.studentbostader.se, the reason might be that you did not register yourself on "My pages" on their web page when you first received the news that the room was booked for you. If so, the landlord had to register you, and make a password etc for getting you into their system. You need to contact Studentbostäder to get the password or to make a new one. However, Studentbostäder also have laundries you can use as drop-in without booking in advance. Laundries placed in the basements are generally for drop-in.


Heimstaden: The sauna is located in the basement of Ryds Allé 9, and it is for free. You book it on the wall outside the sauna.
