Which advice would you give?

Thanks in advance for participating!

My experience is that it can be tricky sometimes to find accomodation i goteborg.

There is a queue system called boplats goteborg. I would not recommend this one as it takes ages to even get an offer for a second hand contract for a flat. I was in the queue for about 7 months and did not get one offer.

Try instead to look in local papers or internet sites like blocket. I am swedish but new to the Gothenburg area so I went on where I found both a flat to rent very affordable over the summer and also a house to rent for a year. On this website there are also flats for rent. I am not sure whether you need a swedish id number (person nummer) to be able to rent, but I think it will make it easier. You can apply for a person nummer at skatteverket.

Rent per month for an ok flat or small house ranges from about 8000 kr - 15000 kr per month roughly.

Hope this information is useful to any of you.

Happy accommodation hunting!!
