Eidar manages nearly 400 student housings. And we are continuing to build more. It contributes to Trollhättan beeing one of the few cities in Sweden that meet the guarantee of housing for students. University West brings together 11,500 students from far and wide and many are choosing to move here.
The housing guarantee is an extra security for students
Trollhättan were named ”Student city of the year” in 2014 by the Swedish National Union of Students (SFS). Eidar provides possibility of sharing an apartment with other students or to rent your own one. You can also rent fully furnished. Living and studying in the same city, of course, is extra convenient.
The student housing guarantee applies for you that study at least 15 p/semester at University West. You must also be 18 years and have more than 30 minutes one way travel with public transport to the university campus.
