Kalmar nation housing

Live at Kalmar nation

We can offer our members student housing in two different housing associations: Bortom Bullret and Rackarnäbbet. The former consists of a bigger number of dorm rooms, and the latter of a small number of apartments. Both associations are in close proximity to the nation – in central Uppsala!

Bortom bullret and Rackarnäbbet

The associations

Rackarnäbbet – historical apartments

In the block with cultural heritage, Övre Slottsgatan 15-19 (the hill next to the nation-building) you find three 1-room apartments, seven 2-room apartments, and two 3-room apartments in renovated wood houses from the 17th- to 19th Century. All apartments are rented without furniture.

Bortom Bullret – housing with a heritage

At Rundelsgränd 6A och 6B (known as Bortom Bullret) and S:t Johannesgatan 19 (Parthenon) there’s 92 single rooms, 8 doublets och 1 triplet. The single rooms are part of dorms, where you share a kitchen. Most of the single rooms are 19 square meters. All single rooms have their own private toilet and shower. In the doublet- and triplet rooms the house mates share both kitchen and toilet. All rooms are rented without furniture.

Bortom Bullret is located very centrally in Uppsala, and the rent is relatively low. The dorm-atmospheres are generally very good, and the residents feel comfortable.
If both rooms in the doublets are available at the same time, two applicants can merge their housing points.

Recceförtur – priority for new students

How does it work?

Before the semester begins, we offer 75% of our available rooms to new members who are “recentior”, new students. This offer is only available for a brief moment before each semester begins, last application date is 15/1.

Applicants are added onto a list, where the ones at the top gets offered first. Application date decides the order for the list, except for a few priority-rules that you can read below. If you’re connected to Kalmar, you’re additionally prioritized.

If you get the offer to sign a lease, you will need to show up the 20/1 to sign the contract. More information on how the contract signing will take place will be announced. If you do not show up, your contract will be offered to the next person on the list.


How do I apply?

You can only apply to the rooms by sending an email with your letter of acceptance, personal number/temporary personal number, telephone number and name to 1q@kalmarnation.se starting from the 10/12 and ending the 15/1 2021, at 12 o’clock.

You get extra prio if you’re from Kalmar län, have final grades from a gymnasium in Kalmar län, och have a parents who used to/is a member of Kalmar nation. Send in proof, by sending physical copies of your final grades from gymnasium or birth certificates (that show parentage or origin), attested by at least two persons to:

Förste kurator
Svartmangatan 3
753 12 Uppsala

The documents must have reached the First Curator no later than 15/1 2021 at 12 o’clock. To have the priority spot registered, wait for a confirmation email. Because of this, it is important that you write down your email address if you are sending in proof by snail mail.

You do not have to have paid the semester fee to apply, but it needs to be paid in order for you to sign the contract. However, a person who has paid the membership fee ends up higher in the list than someone who has yet to pay.
