Premiere for the brand new Valla Living Quarter

The brand new Valla Living Quarter is the future Student home. A concept that offers unique possibilities to create a lovely community and  rewarding student life. The Valla Living Quarter is a communal apartment where every student has access to an amazing 214 square meters of living space. So how does this equation stack up? Let us take you through it step by step.      


More apartment more experiences. From 4 895 Kr/Month.

The Valla Living Quarter is a brand new concept of living that turns the old traditional ways completely upside down. So what do you think about living in a top modern communal apartment where you have your own private room consisting of 14 m2 whilst the other 200 m2 is for socialising, cooking, dining, gaming, watching movies and of course studying. Consider also that all the furniture; household utensils and other gadgets are included in the rent. Additionally Wi-Fi and other services that make life simpler for students are also included. No matter where you have lived before we promise that the new Valla Living Quarter will deliver much greater experiences and satisfaction and all of this at a very competitive starting rent of only 4 895 kronor.

A completely new way to live; only a stone’s throw away from Campus Valla

The concept Valla Living Quarter has been created from the winning entry of an Architects competition held by Sweden’s Architects and Student Homes 2013. The original idea has since been refined and developed through research, international study visits and from our own experience and knowledge of current student attitudes and needs. Now the idea has become reality in the middle of Vallastaden, Linköping’s new sustainable district that lies right next to the University. Simply put, the Valla Living Quarter is a communal student home that encompasses the best features of dormitories and regular apartments, with the added extra spice of sustainable thinking and planning. Today we are pleased to announce two Valla Living Quarters at the same address in our new student neighbourhood. 

Greater spaces, smarter solutions and high ceilings

As the name says you live in a complete quarter all on one floor where 200 m2 consists of communal areas that stretch right through the building and out onto a large terrace. There are 15 single rooms of 14 m2 on both sides of the quarter as well as one double room of 22 m2. However there is more. As an extra bonus every room has a proper sleeping loft. The loft is possible due to the generous extended ceiling height; which provides an airy, modern and area-efficient home and a wonderful atmosphere. Of course you also have your own private toilet and shower.

Everything is in place. You will feel more than at home

The Valla Living Quarter is newly furnished and equipped in partnership with IKEA. This means you avoid the hassle of moving-in trucks and can quickly move in. Your room is ready for you to move straight into and right outside your door you have direct access to the kitchen, dining room, movie area, library and a lounge area with a glass veranda towards the terrace. To keep things neat and tidy all shoes, outdoor jackets and waterproofs are stored in the wardrobes in the communal hallway and there is also a wardrobe in each room.

Close to everything you will ever need

To live in Studentbostäder’s new neigbourhood in Vallastaden means that you are extremely close to the university, sports centre, supermarket and more than 200 other students living in the area. You will also find our District Office on the ground floor and next door a café and restaurant offering student discounts. In Vallastaden the roads are car free but you do have access to a car pool. There is of course public transportation available if you prefer not to take your bycycle. Close by to Vallastaden you will find more restaurants and shops.

About applying and moving-in

​We classify the Valla Living Quarter as an upgraded student home and therefore we prioritise students that already reside in a student apartment or dormitory. We are happy to receive applications from June 2017 and the first moving-in date will be in August. This is how the letting of Vallavåningen works.
