There are no accommodation guarantees for free mover students. In periods with capacity problems you will not be prioritized, but in periods with vacancy you will be allowed to rent. Usually there are more available accommodations during the spring semester. If you get a room through the Student Service Organization you have to rent the room for at least a whole semester. The autumn semester runs from 10 August until 31 December, and the spring semester from 1 January until 14 June. The International Coordinator will check if there is a possibility for renting accommodation through the Student Services Organization, and if possible register your housing application and make the booking reservations.
