What is a Student Queue?

A student queue is a system used to allocate student housing among students based on certain criteria, such as how long one has been registered in the queue. In Sweden, the demand for student housing is high, and being in a student queue can be a necessity to find accommodation.

How Do Student Queues Work?

Most student housing companies and university towns have their own queue systems. Students need to register in these queues and often pay a fee. The longer you have been registered, the higher up in the queue you will be and the greater your chance of getting housing.

Tips for Climbing the Student Queue

There are several ways to improve your chances in the student queues. Among other things, you can register in the queue as early as possible, even before you have received your admission decision. Also, make sure to keep your information updated and be active in searching for available housing. Services like Dibz.se can automate the search and increase your chances of finding accommodation.

Considerations When Applying for Student Housing

When applying for student housing, it's important to have realistic expectations and be flexible regarding the location and standard of the accommodation. Remember that student housing is often smaller and simpler than other accommodations. It's also important to have all necessary documents ready, such as admission letters and certificates of student finance.


Navigating the student housing market can be challenging, but with the right strategy and tools, you can increase your chances of finding accommodation. By understanding how student queues work and making use of available resources, including services like Dibz, you can make the process smoother and find your new home faster.
