There is a specific period where applications for dwelling in the apartment are advertised, in early autumn days for the coming year. Interested people are however able to check for availability at any time over the year.

Applications shall be sent to Þórður Sævar Jónsson, thordurs@amtsbok.is

Applicants should definitely make the applications thorough and appealing, provide information about themselves and the projects they intend to work on while staying there. Good applications increase the chances of getting accepted. It would also be good to mention an additional period in the application if the main period is not available.
