AF Bostäder started to certificate its contractors in 2008, in order to give students the calmest possible environment for studying in their homes and better conditions for the contractors.
The students need peace and quiet for large parts of the day, as their homes are also their workplaces. For that reason, all those who carry out work in AF Bostäder’s student housing must know which rules, values and codes of behaviour they are expected to follow. The contractors go on a course that informs them about AF Bostäder’s activities, the handling of keys and our rules for conduct and behaviour. The course ensures that craftsmen, painters and carpenters have the information they need to carry out good work with as little disruption as possible. All contractors active in AF Bostäder’s areas are to carry a certificate with photo ID.
Most corridors tenants really enjoy corridor life, but new students would prefer to live in apartments – if they had the choice. AF Bostäder is testing new ways to increase the feeling of home on corridors.
After many years of increasing activities in AF Borgen, it is now time for much longed-for and locally financed rebuilding work. AF Bostäder, of course, is involved and one of the financiers.
Lund University has a relatively high proportion of international students. One-fifth of AF Bostäder’s tenants come from other countries and the international students like to live – and thrive – on corridors.
Everyone is to feel equally welcome at AF Bostäder. The company has a clear position concerning everybody’s equal value and rights, and therefore participates in Lundapride.
AF Bostäder would like to play a part in reducing sedentary time and spreading the joys of exercise. In May, a total of 500 students were invited to take part in the Lundaloppet fun run with AF Bostäder.
AF Bostäder has a new maintenance plan to be used to predict, simulate, cost-calculate and plan forthcoming maintenance. Most important – carrying out the projects with retained customer satisfaction.
The AF Family and Studentlund offer student life that is unique in Sweden. The strong relationship with student life is a success factor and the sense of commitment is considerable.
The rents are set in two stages. The first consideration is that rental income is to cover AF Bostäder’s costs. The second consideration is how the costs are to be divided between the individual properties.
For many of the students, their AF Bostäder apartment is the first home of their own. Feeling secure is crucial for the experience of student housing – and a top priority for AF Bostäder.
AF Bostäder has its own student housing ombudsman, nicknamed “Bomben” in Swedish. The ombudsman is responsible for student influence on housing matters.
What is best for the students is the best for Lund. The students are our client and by continuing to strengthen our relationship with the AF family and Studentlund, we can continue to deliver good products and services.
To be eligible for our housing list, you have to be admitted at Lund University, and study actively (and preferably diligently). The annual study checks release a large number of housing places to active students.
In 2014, AF Bostäder received the honor of standing behind the carnival in the role of main sponsor. A pure pleasure for a housing company in the middle of student life.
Since 2005, AF Bostäder has been running the project Clean and Tidy - an ambitious effort to keep the well-being of the tenants in corridor housing at a top level.
We are something of a pioneer regarding housing rentals online and for many years the company’s rental activities and range of services has been close to 100 % digital. In 2015, the website received a welcome boost.
Every year, the tenants change at 3 000 apartments and corridor rooms. Such major and intensive administration requires the market’s best technology in order to offer the students the best possible service.
One important reason why students like to live in AF Bostäder housing is the high-quality IT infrastructure that has been in place for many years. That is why in 2013 we started to offer 1 Gbit per second – at no extra cost!
