Information regarding housing applications

The studio apartments at Idun are intended for double occupancy (2 students of the same gender sharing one apartment) but they can also be rented out for single occupancy (1 student living alone in one apartment). Please be aware that we only have studio apartments, which means that the apartments consist of only one room. Exchange students and master students who receive a scholarship via Stockholm University Scholarship Scheme are eligible to rent these apartments. Please observe that when you make a housing application you cannot choose a specific size or a specific floor. You can however, specify under additional information if you would prefer a small room, a big room, a room on the ground floor, the cheapest room and so on.

  • If you want to share a studio apartment with another student remember to specify that you want to share on the housing application. You must also write this students name.
  • If you want to share a studio apartment but does not have a specific student in mind make sure you fill out that you want to share on the housing application and the Housing Office will then choose your roommate (it will be another international student at Stockholm University that has the same gender as you).
  • If the person you want to share with is your partner/spouse (and that person is not an exchange student at Stockholm University) you must apply for single occupancy, so you must fill out that you do not want to share the apartment on the housing application because only your name can be on the rent contract. When you have received a housing offer you must give the Housing Office the name of your partner/spouse for security reasons but also so that you can get an extra key to the apartment.
  • Please note that if you choose Idun as one of your options and you fill out that you are not willing to share you will be booked in an apartment by yourself and you will then be required to pay the full rent.

Please be aware that we are not able to change any furniture in the studio apartments so the furniture will always be: a dining table, two chairs, a bunk bed, wardrobes and lamps (if you want any other type of furniture you will have to buy it yourself).

Inventories in the apartment and kitchen area

The apartments are furnished with a dining table, two chairs, a bunk bed, wardrobes and lamps. Please be aware that we are not able to change any furniture in the studio apartments. You must bring your own quilt, pillow, sheets, towels and network cable. Each studio apartment is between 20,2-28,6 square meter. All the apartments have a private bathroom with a shower and WC. All apartments also have a kitchen area with a stove and a refrigerator with freezer. There may be cleaning supplies and also china and cooking utensils in the apartment but this cannot be guaranteed.

Rent and rent payments

All accommodation is rented for one semester with the possibility to extend for one more semester if the student is continuing their exchange studies at Stockholm University.

The rent for one semester per person for a shared apartment is between SEK 15600,00-22500,00.

The rent for one semester if you rent the apartment by yourself is between SEK 31200,00-45000,00.

The rent includes cold and hot water, electricity, heating and Internet with unlimited time online. The rent is paid in two installments. For more payment information please log into your accommodation account.

Computers and internet

The internet is not wireless (Wi-Fi) due to security reasons so you must have a network cable to be able to use the internet. Please note that network cables from other countries may not work in Sweden so we suggest you buy one in Stockholm. Also note, that there are stationary computers available at Stockholm University, free of charge.


Upon arrival you will receive the keys for your studio apartment. You are responsible for your keys and if you loose your keys you will have to pay the cost of a lock change and that can be as much as SEK 5000,00.

Housing insurance

As the tenant you are responsible for your accommodation, including damages even if the damage is caused by a guest. No consideration can be taken in regard to whether the damage is the result of carelessness, an accident or some deliberate act. As the legal tenant you will be held responsible for payment. As an exchange student you have a student insurance via Kammarkollegiet and it should cover some or all of these costs. This is something you must check with Kammarkollegiet yourself. Master students (who are not here on an exchange) do not have this student insurance by Kammarkollegiet so you must buy a housing insurance yourself.  Note also that neither the landlord or Stockholm University can be held responsible for any theft or loss of your personal possessions and this includes your accommodation keys.
