KOMBO offers Emergency Accommodation
If you arrive in Linköping or Norrköping and don't have any place to stay, you can purchase a ticket to the Emergency Accommodation. You will sleep on an air mattress and have to provide your own bedding or sleeping bag.
KOMBO offers Emergency Accommodation to newly-arrived students at the beginning of the fall semester. The accommodation is arranged modestly with basic kitchen equipment. You will share an apartment with several other students. Pillows and blankets can be purchased at the KOMBO office. We are unfortunately unable to rent bed linen.
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, a freezer and a microwave, as well as a simple kitchen table with chairs. There are also a basic supply of dishes, glasses and cutlery. Please contact KOMBO if something is out of supply or if something is broken.
Students sleep on an air mattress and there are several sleeping places in each apartment. Remember to bring your own bed linen and blankets or sleeping bag or purchase it at the KOMBO office. The Emergency Accommodation is not intended for longer stays. Please be aware that it accommodates several students at night and that the apartments have to be vacated during the day.
One of the apartments will as far as possible be reserved for girls.
The Emergency Accommodation is open between August 1 and September 30.
In Linköping and Norrköping tickets for the Emergency Accommodation cost 100 SEK per night. Note that we only take cash (SEK)!
Tickets must be purchased at the KOMBO office no later than 17:00 (5 pm) the day you will use it. It is not possible to reserve a place in the accommodation before you arrive, you have to purchase the tickets personally and sign an agreement. If you need to stay for a weekend, you must buy the tickets for Saturday and Sunday no later than 17:00 (5 pm) on Friday. Unused tickets can unfortunately not be returned.
If available it's possible to borrow a key to the accommodation, for which a deposit of 500 SEK is required. This is refunded when the key is returned within the agreed time (no later than 11:15 (Linköping)/12:45 (Norrköping) in the morning after your last night in the apartment). The person who signed for the key is personally responsible for it. If the key is lost, you will be charged a total of 1500 SEK, including the deposit. Students who hold keys are required to take calls from and let other students in at an agreed time, provided that they have a valid ticket.
Those staying at the Emergency Accommodation who don't have a key must contact those who have keys in order to be let in to the apartment. Lists with phone numbers to the students possessing keys can be found at the KOMBO office.
If you are staying at the Emergency Accommodation for several nights, it's possible to leave your luggage in the apartment during the day at your own risk. KOMBO is not responsible for any loss or damage of personal belongings left in the apartment. The KOMBO staff will visit the Emergency Accommodation regularly to ensure that there are no problems.
In order to keep the accommodation as nice as possible, we ask you to follow a few rules:
It is forbidden to smoke or consume alcohol both in the apartment and on the balcony.
No parties are allowed in the apartment – this means no loud music or anything that could disturb the neighbours.
Dishes should be washed immediately after use. Please keep the kitchen clean.
The accommodation must be completely vacated during the day between 9 and 17.
Lights should be turned off and the apartment should be silent after 23:00 at night.
Students who sleep in the apartment are responsible for letting each other in during the evening and at night.
Do not let anyone in unless they can show a valid ticket with the day’s date stamped on it.
Verification of valid tickets can take place during evening and at night by the KOMBO staff or uniformed guards. Failure to show a valid ticket is equivalent to trespassing, resulting in police report and immediate eviction.
As a guest of the Emergency Accommodation you will sign an agreement in which, among other things, these rules are stated. We do this in order to ensure that the quality of the accommodation is held as high as possible.
Usually there is only need to use the Emergency Accommodation for a couple of nights. You will hopefully find another solution within a short time, as it's easier to find accommodation after arriving in Linköping.
