Long Waitlists for Student Housing

Around 1,179 students are on a waiting list for housing in the Reykjavík capital area, RÚV reports. The University of Iceland’s housing association Félagsstofnun stúdenta has a waitlist of 729 for the fall semester. The number is slightly lower than last year, when 824 students were waitlisted for the fall semester. The association hopes to eventually provide housing for 15-20% of the university’s students, but currently only provides around 10%.

Housing association Byggingafélag námsmanna, open to students from various capital area universities, has a waitlist of around 450 for the fall semester.
