Abstract
This paper evaluates the practicality and efficiency of different solutions to the
house allocation problem faced by the company providing housing for students
at Lund University. Both static and dynamic mechanisms are considered. A
series of simulations show that the problem could be solved more efficiently by
altering the booking period length of the currently used mechanism, and even more
efficiently by adopting some variant of the top trading cycles mechanism developed
by Abdulkadiroglu and Sönmez (1999).
