Looking for an apartment
My friend and I are going to go study at university of Lund next september. We are looking for any kind of accommodations.
RE: Looking for an apartment
Good idea to start looking NOW! :) Have you tried the university's own accommodation page? I guess that's where you enrol on their queueing system even if they might want to be sure you've got accepted before you can join the list.
Travel Tips for Lund
Hollyhocks abound in Sweden
Lund is a quaint little university town. I went in July which is the time when all the students have left for home and vacation. The town was very quiet and a pleasure to walk through. Streets are gently curved and it is an easy walk through the different squares in town. I loved all the hollyhocks which people planted outside their doors and windows.
The City of Lund takes environmental protection very seriously, and is actively pursuing several programmes designed to achieve long-term sustainable development.
These efforts involve many of the City departments and span across multiple areas of operations.
In a newspaper poll, Lund's citizens were asked what they lacked most about their nice city and a vast majority said "the sea". Lomma is only ten minutes away by bus and is Lund's closest seaside place. With good beaches, this otherwise quite sleepy place sees lots of swimmers and campers summertime and makes a good place for a picnic on a sunny day. See my Lomma page for info.
The Botanical Gardens in Lund are located at the edge of the city
center. It's a big garden with lot's of space with nice lawns and lots
There is a nice greenhouse that you can visit in the company of exotic plants where it's
always nice and warm.
In the Lund Botanical Gardens you will find more then 7000 plant
species all setup in a big garden.
Viking rune stones
These stones did not stand here (Lundagård, near the university) originally, but in various places around the county. It is still nice to be able to see them here as many stones have been smashed up by farmers by mistake as they are often found in agricultural areas. Most stones here are from Christian times although there are earlier ones in Skåne. They all have messages in memory of brave warriors who died abroad or similar in runic script. You will find more stones in the Kulturen museum and in the University library and can mail me for more all over Sweden if this appeals to you.
