Keys to your student accommodation Keys to your student accommodation

Sundsvall campus

The Pick-up service includes a key exchange service. 
This means that students who apply for our pick-up service before deadline 21 December will receive keys to their student accommodation upon arrival. The student Union will pick up the keys at the Mitthem or Diös Housing Company (no other companies) beforehand and hand them over to you.

If you haven't booked our pick-up service you need to collect your keys yourself during the opening hours of the housing company. If you arrive outside their opening hours and are unable to collect your keys, we advise you to book a hostel/hotell for the night and collect the keys in the morning. In Sundsvall we recommend Sundsvall City Hostel

If you have booked accommodation at Odenslingan camping you can collect your keys during office hours. If you arrive after opening hours you can ask the staff at the camping to leave the keys at the gas station (circle k) open 24 hours and located close to the camping.

If you have booked accommodation at Östersundshem you can collect your keys during office hours, if you arrive after opening hours, we advise you to book a hostel/hotell for the night and collect the keys in the morning. In Östersund we recommend STF Östersund/Ledkrysset vandrarhem
