Housing regarding the autumn semester 2017

All student rooms have been booked for the autumn semester. All rent contracts for the autumn semester 2017 will start on August 20, 2017 and end on January 12, 2018. Housing Office Arrival Days for the autumn semester 2017 will be Sunday August 20 and Monday August 21. August 20 will be the first day keys can be picked up. Note that Stockholm University does not have a housing guarantee and exchange students that do not recieve accommodation from the Housing Office will have to find housing on their own.

Also note that PhD students are not eligible for this accommodation queue (even if they are here on an exchange) instead they can apply for accommodation on this webpage: http://www.su.se/english/staff/relocation/planning-your-stay/accommodation-for-visiting-researchers

Housing regarding the spring semester 2018

Information on how to apply for accommodation for the spring semester 2018 have been e-mailed to all new incoming exchange students. We unfortunately cannot guarantee accommodation for every exchange student and we cannot provide housing for students with children or students who are doing an internship. Students we cannot provide accommodation for must find something on their own on the housing market in Stockholm. All rent contracts for the spring semester 2018 will start on January 15, 2018 and end on June 8, 2018. Housing Office Arrival Day for the spring semester will be January 15 and this is the first day that keys can be picked up.

Confirmation of room or apartment booking

1) Before June 30 (for the Autumn semester) or before November 30 (for the Spring semester) you will be informed by the Housing Office via e-mail if you have been offered accommodation or not.

2) If you are successful, you will receive a housing offer by email including information on the accommodation area, information about how to make the first rent payment, information about picking up keys and information about the rent contract.

3) The housing offer will include detailed instructions and before accepting the offer, please read all the information carefully. If you do not want the accommodation you can decline the offer. Please observe that you will only get one offer of accommodation. If you choose to decline the accommodation you will not be able to receive housing from the Housing Office again.

4) To accept the offer you must first upload a copy of your passport or any other vaild identification card with a photo online. You must then make the first payment according to the instructions you receive and also upload a copy of the receipt of the payment online. Please observe that this payment is non-refundable even if you would later decide to decline the accommodation offer. If you do not make the payment on time your room booking will automatically be cancelled. Please also note that the Housing Office does not cover any bank fees so you must pay these yourself.

Please keep in mind that international transactions sometimes take up to ten days before the amount is registered on the recipient’s account.

Decline offered housing

Please observe that you will only get one offer of accommodation. If you choose to decline the accommodation you are offered you will not be able to receive accommodation from the Housing Office again.

Please note: All the accommodation is rented out on a semester basis so there is no cancellation policy once the rent contract has started.
