Important information for spring semester 2019 and autumn semester 2019

Please note that kitchen renovations are currently taking place in some of the buildings at Lappis. At the moment we do not know if any of our rooms will be directly affected by these renovations, so if you choose Lappis on your accommodation application please note that you will not be able to switch accommodation if it turns out that the kitchen in your corridor will be affected. Tenants that are directly affected by kitchen renovations will be given a 40% discount during the period they are affected.

Also note that during 2019 SSSB has started building 500 new apartments at Lappis so there will be construction work taking place every weekday. All tenants staying in Lappis must be willing to put up with any noise connected to this construction work and no compensation will be offered for this. Please note that there will not be any parking available at Lappis while the new apartments are being built.
