Welcome to Dr Forselius backe!

Important information for tenants applying for an apartment in this area! 

SGS Studentbostäder does not own these apartments but rents them from another property owner. SGS in turn, rents these to students. This means that you as a tenant will live in a building among non-students. 

In the rental relations between SGS and the property owner, SGS is not responsible for repairs or maintenance in the property. Instead, SGS forwards fault reports to the property owner. This may lead to longer processing time compared to if you lived in an apartment owned by SGS. If something breaks or needs to be fixed in your home, you can report this by using the contact form on My pages or contact the landlord at Bostad AB Poseidon. You can also always contact your Customer Center.

Many of the areas were built during the 1950s and 60s which means that the state of the apartments may vary.
