Looking for housing?

Har du nyss blivit antagen till BTH och letar efter bostad?

Have you just been admitted to BTH and are looking for housing?
In Blekinge there are several different landlords. Some homes are close to campus, while others are a little further away. Some are student accommodations and others are ordinary apartments.
When the admission letter comes, the student apartments usually go like butter in sunshine, even ordinary apartments fill up pretty quickly. However, a month after the start of the term, it usually tends to open up on the market and there is a greater opportunity to find an apartment that is right for you.

You will find links to different landlords where you can apply for student accommodation and regular rent. You can also find a link to each municipality's website where they list all their landlords.

Subletting?

Due to these factors sublease contracts are very often for a limited time only.
Here's some tips for subletting:

Always make sure that the person subleasing an apartment to you have permission of the landlord, it is illegal to sublease without permission.

Never PAY any deposit or payment in advance of having seen the apartment AND signed the contract.

Never PAY through an anonymous payment method such as Western Union or Paypal.

Try to determine if the rent is reasonable by comparing similar offers.

More information about subletting can be found if you open the website on a computer.

When you sublease an apartment you rent from an existing tenant instead of the landlord. It is often the case that the tenant is temporarily away for some months due to some business in another city or country and want to lease the apartment to someone else during that time instead of having to move our of the apartment. It might also be the case that the tentant have a spare room and want to make some extra money by renting it to someone. Due to these factors sublease contracts are very often for a limited time only.

Tips when moving

student finance via CSN

We recommend applying for study funding for a long period, that is, apply for the entire academic year directly than once per semester.

We recommend applying for study funding for a long period, that is, apply for the entire academic year directly than once per semester. Every time you apply for study funding, CSN evaluates if you have met the requirements for continued study funding and if you then have points that have not been reported, you risk being without study funding. By applying for one full academic year at a time, you minimize that risk.
