The rent/contract

Paying your rent

The Ugot students should pay the first rent in advance according to our instructions regardless of the payment day indicated on the website. 

During your stay you pay the rent monthly in advance. Payment is due the last weekday of the month. If you have not received a rent invoice, you are still obliged to pay the rent on time.

The payment will be registered by us on the date when your bank has deposited the amount into our account. Contact your bank for details if you are unsure about when you need to carry out the payment for it to be delivered to us on time.

Always use the payment information shown under My pages/ The rent. You get a new and unique OCR number each month.

Payment of rent from a Swedish bank account should be directed to our bank giro 602-9797. The OCR number, amount and due date should be indicated.

You receive the invoice (web slip) each month on My pages/The rent. If you have not received the invoice and, if you can not contact us, use your latest OCR number for payment.

If you wish to pay in advance, you can either deposit a larger amount of the rents in one payment, or contact us for invoices.
Some debit items (e g individual consumption of electricity and hot water) can not be announced in advance, please pay an amount equal to your normal consumption. We will make an adjustment on your next invoice.


You can get your rent on an e-invoice sent directly to your internet banking. All payment details are then already completed and you approve the e-invoice before payment. The service is free. Many banks also offer automatic payment on the due date and a message by SMS or email when a new e-invoice is sent to  your Internet bank.

If you are not registered for e-invoicing with your bank, you must arrange it. You should inform that you want to use SGS Studentbostäder as the recipient of your e-invoices. You must be a customer at the SGS (the person who signed the contract) for  payment by an e-invoice . You need also have a Swedish personal identity that you have notified us.

On application for e-invoice, please quote your item number. The item number can be found on your rental slip or contract. 

If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, you must change the due date so that the rent will be paid by the last day of the month at the latest.
