Who is eligible for housing?

Only International exchange students or International Masters students who have received a scholarship via the Stockholm University Scholarship Scheme are eligible to apply for student housing.  All eligible students will receive an e-mail with information about how to apply for housing.  This email is sent in the middle of May for students beginning in the fall semester, and in the middle of October for students beginning in the spring semester.

Last minute housing lottery for the Spring Semester 2018

We may get some late cancellations on booked accommodation so a Last minute housing lottery will be held between January 15 to January 17. Students that get accommodation in the lottery will be able to move in on January 19. More information about the lottery will be posted on this webpage on January 8. Please note that there will only be a few rooms available in this lottery.

Housing Offers

You will be receive an e-mail from the Housing Office stating whether you have received a housing offer or not.  This email will be sent before June 30 (for the Fall semester) or before November 30 (for the Spring semester)

Housing offers will include information about the housing area offered, your first rent payment due, key pick-up and the rental contract.  The housing offer will include detailed instructions.  Read all information carefully before accepting your offer.

How to Accept an Offer

To accept your housing offer, first upload a copy of your passport or any other vaild identification card with a photo. Then, make the first payment according to the instructions you have received and upload a copy of the receipt of the payment. This first payment is non-refundable even if you later decide to decline the accommodation offer. 

International transactions can sometimes take up to ten days before the amount is registered on the recipient’s account.  If you do not make the payment on time, your room booking will automatically be cancelled.  The Housing Office does not cover any bank fees so you must cover this cost yourself.

How to Decline an Offer

If you do not want the housing offered, you may decline the offer.  However, you will only receive one offer for housing.  If you choose to decline the offer, you will have to find housing on your own.  All housing is rented out on a semester basis.  There is no cancellation policy once the rental contract has begun.
