Greenhouse is a student hub, accommodating over 100 students just like you, in a high-quality, newly renovated house of high ecological standards. Greenhouse provides constant opportunities for social interaction, which is a perfect way for you to meet new people and make friends who come from all over the world. It is close to the city center and yet you have the opportunity to take a stroll in the Scanian landscape. Sweden often takes the lead on globalenvironmental issues, and Lund University is internationally renowned for its education and research on green subjects. Live Lund at its very greenest at New Greenhouse! The building was once raised for the Swedish Seed Testing Agency - to ensure the quality and health of crops - and has nowd been completely refurbished to accommodate students with a green heart.
Wi-fi: There is free high-speed wifi available throughout the building.
International or short-term students: Moving in and out at Greenhouse can be adapted to your schedule. If you want to stay one semester or just a few months - Greenhouse welcomes you anyway!
Compact living: At Greenhouse, you have your own room. There is one toilet and one shower per three rooms. There are several kitchen areas on each floor, and shared lounge and living room areas. This is compact living at its best; efficient living spaces, opportunities for social interaction and a green community feel!
Rooms types: We have different room types at Greenhouse, from small to large; differing accordingly in price. Small from 8 sq. m. and 2464 SEK; Medium from 12 sq. m. and 3575 SEK; Large from 14 sq. m. and 4043 SEK up to 20 sq. m. All rooms are furnished.
Highest fire-safety: In the refurbishment of Greenhouse, we put in fire-safety of the highest order. Fire-resistant materials are used throughout. There are individual fire indicators for each student room and fire and smoke detectors in all areas including bathrooms.
Bike-friendly: There is a strong biking-culture in Lund and at Greenhouse, we promote biking for our students. Just outside the house there are bike stands for all students and an open-air bike fix workshop, where you can make sure your tires are inflated and your bike is in top condition. If you are not a biker, there are bus stations at convenient walking distance.
Heating: Greenhouse is heated with a new modern heating-system where heat is recycled in the ventilation-system. This gives back about 4 degrees of temperature that otherwise would be lost – instead it is sent back into the building.
Eco-friendly kitchen appliances: Kitchen appliances are all eco-friendly and have low energy consumption (A++ and better). Taps and toilets are designed for efficient water use.
LED-light: Greenhouse is lit up with LED-light, the most ecofriendly light with a long life- span and high energy-efficiency. Some lights are also controlled by motion detectors and time-control to save even more energy.
Recycling: The recycling and sorting house makes recycling easy, with separate boxes for your different kinds of waste, and clear how- to guides.
