As a tenant of AF Bostäder, you can sublet your student housing to another student at Lund University.


  • Your exemption has been approved.
  • During the subletting period, you must live outside commuting distance from your apartment, that is Skåne.
  • You will continue your studies at Lund University after the subletting period.
  • The subtenant must be in our housing queue and fulfil the study- and membership requirements.  

The subtenant's queue time will not be affected by the subletting.

Apply for subletting

Tenants with an approved exemption can apply for subletting via Your Pages/Applications and contracts. Apply at least 3 weeks in advance. 

Your responsibility

The tenant is always responsible taking care of the student housing and the payment of the rent during the subletting period. All conditions of agreement in the contract between the tenant and AF Bostäder apply during the entire rental period, even when you sublet your housing.

It is your responsibility to ensure that the subtenant moves out at the end of the subletting period, even if you do not immediately need your student housing when the subletting period finishes.

The subletting period is shown in the confirmation you received from us when the subletting application was approved. You don't need to notify us when you are back in your student accommodation.

If any alterations occur in the hire agreement between you and your subtenant, you must inform AF Bostäder's Service Centre before the alterations come into effect.

It is important that you agree with the subtenant about the home insurance coverage.

Inform your subtenant about the conditions of contract that apply. Practical advice for your subtenant can be found here.

Unauthorised subletting

Note that subletting always requires approval from AF Bostäder. A tenant who sublets his/her housing without authorisation will be unregistered from AF Bostäder's housing queue and barred from applying again. It is not possible to apply for exemption from the study and member requirement or apply for subletting. Unauthorised subletting can result in eviction.

A subtenant who sublets a housing without approval from AF Bostäder will be un-registered from the housing queue, but may make a new application.
