Klostergatan 16 is very centrally located – only a few minutes from the city center. This building was a hotel up until 2015 and was then converted into student living. This location offers some unique social areas on the ground floor for our tenants, including a large sitting room, a common kitchen, gym, laundry facilities and a café.
We have 233 student rooms in this building. Most rooms are about 23 square meters and all include private bathroom and kitchenette (with fridge, microwave oven and basic kitchen equipment). The kitchenette is only for heating and not for heavy cooking or frying. The common kitchen on the ground floor is fully equipped and cooking stations can be booked by all tenants. The concept is dependant on communal responsibility and all tenants are expected to clean up after themselves after using the common facilities.
The rooms are furnished with a bed and mattress, pillow and quilt, chair, a desk or table, closet, curtains and ceiling lamp.
You can find an interview with one of our tenants at Klostergatan here.
