WELCOME TO MALMÖ
The HousErasmus+ project aims to mapp out challenges and solutions in student accommodation for international students and trainees. In a series of four regional conferences we aim to gather all relevant stakeholders in the field: students, higher education insitutions, housing providers and policy makers. The conference will share our latest research and showcase practices in the region. It also aims to be a platform for discussion regarding potential practices that could be scaled-up or implemented as policies to improve the housing situation for international student and trainees.

Plan your travels accordingly to the location.
Malmö, the third largest city of Sweden, and the economical and cultural centre of the area, is located by the southern coasts, connected via the Øresund Bridge to Copenhagen in Denmark. From being majorly a a city of ship manufacturing industry, Malmö has contemporarily evolved into a highly multicultural and design-conscious city, attracting especially young professionals.Indeed, almost half of Malmö’s population of around 300,00 is under the age of 35, and around 30% of the citizens are foreign-born, making Malmö the home of citizens from over 170 nationalities! Some of the demographical development of Malmö is the courtesy of the young University of Malmö, established in 1998 right to the neighbor of the old shipyards.
