Student Housing

The Student Housing community is lively and entertaining for the tenants and their families. The housing comes in all shapes and sizes and is tailored for the tenants needs. We emphasize effective use of space, efficiency, sharing and fellowship to make sure the tenants relations are pleasent.
Most of our Student Housing is situated at the University area but we also have housing in Fossvogur, right above Hlemmur bus station and at Lindargata. When the location for Student Housing is decided we emphasize that the housing is near the University of Iceland, that our tenants can walk or bike there or they can reach a bus station nearby. We stress that our shared facilities are cosy and diverting so tenants can get to know each other, meet up and enjoy themselves.
Students registered at the University of Iceland can apply for Student Housing all year round but students starting school next fall semester can apply from the 1st of June.

Allocations rules and rental increase

June 16th the FS board approved a proposal in amendments to the allocation rules, approved by the Student Council.
These changes are concerning priority in family apartments. Until now family size and children’s age have been considered when apartments are assigned, both regarding priority and size of apartments. 
That priority will remain, but in addition single parents and couples that both are full time students enjoy priority over a couple where only one is a student.

The rental base in Student Housing will increase by 5.3% on September 1st. The increase is due to higher operating costs and  fees connected to increase in property tax in recent years.
