Before arrival

Rent payment

Students arriving in August should pay the first monthly rent in advance, before the 31st of July to ensure the booking of the student residence. The invoice is visible under My pages, The rent. 

If your contract starts in mid January, you pay the rent for the second half of January in advance by the middle of December. The exact amount will be seen under My pages on the Ugot website when the flat has been booked for you.

Always refer to the OCR number and include your own name as the sender. Please bring a proof of payment on arrival.

Your local bank needs this information:

Students inside the EU should use BIC (also called SWIFT) and IBAN (international bank account number) for safe money transfers. 

It is possible to use the SEPA credit transfer and pay in Euro. If you transfer the amount in Euro, check the Internet for currency converter or ask your local bank about the exchange rates. Round up the amount so that it corresponds to the amount in Swedish currency (kronor). 

Save a receipt or a draft from Internet bank transaction and bring a proof of payment on arrival.

The BIC address (ESSESESS) is to the SEB bank in Stockholm because most foreign banks use that address.

Payments from abroad require a longer time to be registered. 

You check the payment registration under the Ugot website, My pages, The rent. During holiday times you may have to wait for 5 – 7 working days for the payment registration. 

If the payment has not been registered 10 days after the payment date, please contact the SGS office for payments, e-mail .

Observe that the SGS does not send you any confirmation of received payment.

The monthly rent is always paid in advance the last working day each month at the latest. A new invoice appears under My pages at the end of every month. The OCR reference number is unique for each month.

Observe; the rent is subject to changes due to negotations between the landlords and the Swedish Union of Tenants every year in December-February. The result of the negotiations is published on the SGS website.

The rent is preliminary in contracts, which are sent in December - February.
