This is my house in Visby. It is like an studio, very cozy from my point of view. Everything is new, the building were constructed in 2004. Usually, they are  used as summer flats but students rent it during the year. The facilities that surround the house are pretty nice as you can see in the pictures. It included every kitchen settings you need, even microwaves and coffee machine. The apartment also has a storage where to save the suitcase or the bike for instance; it is pretty big. Right in front of the building you can find the laundry room.  It is not the cheapest flat you can get here but  is not that expensive for living alone. It has 25 m2 and heating, hot water, electricity, broadband and tv cable are included in the price. You can rent a TV by 10 euros per month.  Housing prices  for students  in Visby roughly vary from 2000 – 4000 SEK.

    Hej Oscar,

    as mentioned I liked your site. I wonder though whether I may refer to it when I send my ‘Welcome’ letter to the new students or whether you prefer me to only use it when we do our Orientation.

    Looking forward to your reply.
    Kind regards

      Hej Lose,

      I am glad you like it. Do not worry, of course you can send it together with the “Welcome” letter. I think it can be useful for new students, in somehow I did it for them. I am trying to give as many details as possible.

      Thanks for your comment,

      Best regards

      Seria un placer Diego, pero en Junio ya emigro. No obstante, cuando tenga un poco más de tiempo incluiré muchas más entradas asi que te invito a que ojees el blog, seguro que encuentras cosas interesantes que hacer por aqui en verano. Que te trae a Sundre?

    Ok, oskar!

    La razón por la que voy son los pájaros. Voy a un observatorio de aves. Estuve trabajando en el jardín botánico y en Mellanskog (explotación maderera) el año pasado, en prácticas. Hice algunos amigos, me encantaron algunos rincones de la isla… y me he buscado la vida para repetir y no perder esa amistad!

    En fin, otra vez será! Sigo tu blog!
    Un saludo!

      Que suerte, pues nada disfruta del verano que esta isla es para eso. El invierno se hace pesado. No se ven mucho españoles por aqui la verdad. Si puedes, visita fåro en el norte, aunque quizas ya lo conozcas.

    […] The busiest day of the year was January 6th with 161 views. The most popular post that day was Housing. […]

    You should write more about your experience, after you lived there.. about your neigbours, surroundings, way to university, maybe about laundry room and weak glasses as well 😉
