At Kämnärsrätten, AF Bostäder is implementing one of Sweden’s biggest investments in long-term sustainable student housing. With Troja – our largest construction project since the 1960s – the expansion is nearing completion, resulting in an increase in the number of student residences along Kämnärsvägen, a 50% reduction in energy consumption, and the creation of a modern campus environment characterized by comfort, social interaction, and biodiversity.
Since its inception in 2016, the Proto, Sagoeken, Hippocampus, and Pireus quarters have been occupied and ready, while construction of Rhodos is in full swing. Anyone strolling or cycling through Kämnärsrätten can already experience a dynamic and social neighbourhood seamlessly integrated with the rest of Lund, thanks in part to Campuskilen – a pedestrian-friendly area with pleasant spaces for outdoor activities and social interaction – meandering through the quarters. Throughout the expansion, we have realized our visions for all aspects of sustainability, from climate calculations, energy efficiency, sound materials, and biodiversity to comfortable homes that provide a conducive study environment and promote physical and mental well-being. Troja will be a lush and beautiful finale with a natural outdoor environment designed to benefit wildlife and insects.

About the new construction project
Troja will cover nearly 12,000 square meters and feature 312 apartments for approximately 500 students, ranging from one-room apartments to apartments for 2-4 friends. The construction will consist of seven buildings spanning 3-6 stories each, collectively forming two protected and welcoming courtyards. Many of the students will have their own balconies, the larger apartments will be equipped with dishwashers, and there will also be bicycle repair rooms in the area. Thanks to excellent insulation and a generous number of solar panels, energy consumption will be only 80% of new construction requirements.
Furthermore, Troja will become one of AF Bostäder's greenest and most natural areas. To benefit both wildlife and insect life, as well as manage rainwater effectively, the number of paved surfaces will be minimized in favor of wild meadows, gravel paths, wooden walkways, picnic areas with wooden decks, and bicycle parking areas with sedum roofs. A significant number of the area's existing trees and bushes have been preserved, and the entire area will be adorned in pleasing earthy tones.
Accessibility and parking
At the Delphi housing area (west of Kämnärsrätten) there are two car parks along Delfinvägen both north and south of the gym facility, Actic Delphinenbadet. If you have a parking permit for Kämnärsrätten, this also applies for Delphi.
Groundwork and construction work will at times entail disturbances in the form of noise and limited accessibility for cars. Pedestrians and cyclists heading for buildings in the area may at times be directed to use another route via a nearby courtyard.
There will be heavy traffic on both Kämnärsvägen and Magistratsvägen.
