Kollektivhuset Regnbågen

Looking for a home with us?

First you must register with the queue of LKF (Lunds kommunala fastigheter AB). 
Name your area of interest (område) "Regnbågen kollektivhus", and you will get a message when we have a vacancy.
Vacancies will also be visible on LKF's homepage.

The assocation of the house will decide who will be the next tenant. (Will be updated)


Is co-housing (kollektivhus) something for you? It suits some of us perfectly, others wouldn't like it.

Although the owner of the house is LKF (Lunds Kommunala Fastighetsbolag, large local landlord, in public ownership), there are many differences from ordinary rental homes.

You must be comfortable with the following facts, or co-housing will probably not be right for you.

Tenants in Kollektivhuset Regnbågen sign a particular agreement, and become members in the association ”Lunds Kollektivhus nr 2 Ekonomisk förening”. Tenants must, among other things, perform a number of tasks for caretaking, including:

Partaking in the food team (matlag). Each adult member is expected to cook at least three times a semester for all tenants.
Regularily clean corridors, stairs, laundry and other common areas.
Partake in cleaning days (röjardag).
Partake in house meetings, roughly once a month.
Partake in interest groups, focused on particular tasks.
Take your own initatives to improvements and maintenance.
Be responsible, and see what has to be done.
In return, you get to know your neighbours, and share responsibility for people and property. Living in Kollektivhuset Regnbågen is safe and fun when everyone contributes.

NB! The particular rules means you cannot swap apartments with other tenants outside the house. New tenants always have to be approved by the association's board.
