To join the housing queue and apply for an apartment

To apply for an HFAB student apartment, you have to join the housing queue for student apartments and accumulate queue points.

You can accumulate queue points in the student queue and apply for a student apartment from your 18th birthday. When you register for the HFAB student queue, you will also be placed in our housing queue for regular apartments. If you are already registered in the HFAB housing queue for regular apartments, you may, on your 18th birthday, activate your place in the student queue.

You earn one queue point per day. Queue points are always reset to zero upon getting an apartment. This also applies to apartment swaps. Your accumulated queue points are not reset when you move out.

Two ways to get a student apartment

There are two ways to get a student apartment, by lottery or via student queue points. Student apartments via queue points are offered to the applicant with the most queue points, provided that HFAB’s basic requirements for student apartments are met. When student apartments are assigned by lottery, everyone applying for an apartment has the same chance since a computer system selects the queue order.

Before a semester starts (occupancy dates February 1, September 1, and October 1), lottery is used to assign most of the available HFAB student apartments. Note! From October 1, you must upload your letter of acceptance to Halmstad University in order to accept an apartment that is offered to you. You’ll find the upload feature under My Pages.

How rentals via queue points work:

  • All vacant apartments are listed on Bosök for 5 days.
  • Once the application period has run out, a credit check is done on the 5 applicants with the most queue points. Those 5 that meet the HFAB basic requirements for a student apartment will be offered a viewing. Each of these applicants has 5 days in which to view the apartment and notify whether or not they want it. During these 5 days, you must also upload your letter of acceptance to Halmstad University in order to accept the apartment.
  • The applicant with the most queue points to accept the apartment after the viewing gets the rental agreement, provided that the studies requirements are met.

How rental of apartments assigned by lottery works before the start of a semester:

  • Apartments assigned by lottery before the start of a semester are listed on Bosök and searchable for 24 hours, from 7 pm to 7 pm the next day.
  • Applications can be submitted for an unlimited number of apartments.
  • Once the application period has run out, a computer system chooses a queue order among the applicants. The first 3 to be chosen that meet HFAB’s basic requirements for students will be offered a viewing. Each of these applicants has 5 days in which to view the apartment and notify whether or not they want it. During these 5 days, you must also upload your letter of acceptance to Halmstad University in order to accept the apartment.
  • The applicant first chosen of those who accept the apartment after the viewing gets the rental agreement, provided that HFAB’s studies requirements are met.

How regular rental of apartments assigned by lottery works:

  • Apartments assigned by lottery are listed on Bosök for 5 days.
  • Once the application period has run out, a computer system chooses a queue order among the applicants. The first 3 to be chosen that meet HFAB’s basic requirements for students will be offered a viewing. Each of these applicants has 5 days in which to view the apartment and notify whether or not they want it. During these 5 days, you must also upload your letter of acceptance to Halmstad University in order to accept the apartment.
  • The applicant first chosen of those who accept the apartment after the viewing gets the rental agreement, provided that HFAB’s studies requirements are met.

You're allowed a maimum of three applications at any one time in the student queue. If, after a viewing, you decline or fail to reply on a total of three occasions within a two-month period, you will be barred from applying for student apartments for two months; however, you continue to accumulate queue points even during this period. You must always be able to show proof of studies to sign a student apartment agreement. Student apartments are designed for one to two people.
