As an international student, can I apply for student housing if I do not have a Swedish social security number?
You can register with the temporary number you find in your admission letter – e.g. 060521-T321.

Can I send a friend to pick up my keys?
Yes, but only in case of emergency since you will miss important information given if you collect the keys yourself. Power of attorney will be required. For more information, contact bostad@snbostader.se

No.

Can I move in earlier than the start date in my contract?
No, you cannot. You can move in at the earliest on the date that your contract takes effect. If this date falls on a weekend or public holiday, you move in the next weekday.

What happens if someone sublets illegally and this is discovered?
The person who owns the first-hand contract risks the contract being terminated. Anyone who sublets illegally may not stay.

I want to change my subtenant, how do I do that?
If you have been approved to rent out your apartment and you are going to replace your second-hand tenant (during the approved period), we still want you to send in a new Exemption and Second-hand application. We then can quickly run a check so that the subletting tenant meets the study requirement and if you have submitted the correct document according to SNB’s rules for subletting. Extra costs are not required.
You will then receive an email from us confirming if your subletting application has been approved.
