Accommodation Options

The rental market in the Reykjavik area is quite limited. Reykjavik is dealing with shortage of available housing caused by a long term pause in housing construction due to the economic crash in Iceland 2008. The tourism boom in Iceland has also added to this systematic problem.

We strongly advise you to secure housing prior to your arrival.

The University of Iceland owns a limited number of guest apartments that can be rented out for its staff temporarily. Due to high demand for the apartments, these cannot be guaranteed. Most staff members from abroad rent apartments through private entities.

Occasionally private renters contact us with housing offers, which are then forwarded to international staff seeking accommodation. We do not guarantee housing and are not in any way responsible for staff accommodation.
