Blekinge Institute of Technology has no student accommodations and cannot make reservations for students. In order to find accommodation, you have to make an online application or send an email to the housing companies.

Blekinge Student Union can provide you with information about student accommodation in Karlskrona and Karlshamn. Please visit Blekinge Student Union. You are also welcome to contact BTH´s Accommodation coordinator at and address any questions you have.

If you have not applied for housing before your arrival, you may have to stay a considerable time in a hostel before you can get a student room.

When you apply for an apartment, remember to check:

  • How much to pay in rent
  • What is included in the rent (internet, electricity etc)
  • If you are allowed to live together with friends
  • If the apartment is furnished or not

Property Insurance (home insurance)

BTH recommends all students to individually purchase property insurance (hemförsäkring) from a Swedish or international insurance company. Personal property refers to your personal belongings that are not covered by any insurance at BTH, e.g. clothing, jewellery, bicycles, computers, cameras, etc.
