Hello student!

Welcome to Gävle City, University of Gävle and Gefle Student Union. Happy to see you here! Below you will find bits and bobs about things that are good to know as a new student.

Student housing

In Gävle, there are several different ways to find your student housing. The university has a list of housing companies where you can find affordable housing and a little about the type of housing each company offers. We suggest that you start looking into housing even before you are admitted. The list can be found here -> Student housing | HiG

Student housing guarantee

Anyone who is a student at the University of Gävle that can't find student housing can use the county's student housing guarantee. The student housing guarantee means that every student who moves here should be offered housing, at the lastest, 14 days after the semester has started.

​Om studentbostäderna är slut hos AB Gavlegårdarna, K2A Studenthus, Gävle Studentbostäder AB och på Studentbostadgavle.se när terminen ska börja kan du åberopa om studentbostadsgarantin. Din anmälan måste ha kommit in två veckor innan terminsstart.
