Beware of landlord scams, check out this page
Unfortunately, ESN Linköping cannot help exchange student with finding accommodation, we just don't have the means to help everyone in need of apartments/rooms. However, what we can do is to link you to websites that might help you in your search.
Here is a page with a lot of good tips when searching for accommodation:
This page might help you with emergency lodging:
They will post new available rooms and apartments twice every week starting midst July, some with move in date in August and some with move in date in September. You'll have to sign up first, that way you'll get 1 point per queuing day. Don't pay too much attention to the number of points of the others in line though, primarily sign up for those with low number of people in line.
Heimstaden also offers rooms to students and is worth checking out. Sign up and read more here.
