Can the student union help provide housing?

It is not possible for the Student union to help in these matters as all housing in Sweden normally goes either through the city or between individuals (personal ads). Housing in Gothenurg is VERY hard to find if you haven't prepared your search ahead. Make sure to register at http://boplats.se as soon as you get admitted to Chalmers and constantly keep a look-out on housinganywhere.com or blocket.se (in Swedish only). The Student Union constantly works to affect the housing situation politically. 

Where can I buy course literature?
The Student Union's own bookstore, of course. At Cremona.se and STORE and Kokboken on campus Lindhomen you can find relevant literature, stationary, snacks, candy and ice-cream but also presents and clothing (only in STORE)

Where can I eat?
Many student division offers the ability to heat your lunchbox. When you get tired of homemade, you can dine in the union lunch restaurants, bars and cafes around both campuses. With the student card you get a discount, and it is always easy to find good and affordable food! List of restaurants on campus.
