Idun is located in the city center, in an area called Vasastan. Idun was built in 1968 and is owned by SSSB. The building has 7 floors and 157 studio apartments, of which Stockholm University rents 84.  The studio apartments are between 20,2-28,6 square meters. All the studio apartments have a kitchen area with a stove and a refrigerator with freezer as well as a private bathroom with a shower and WC. No smoking is allowed in the building. No pets are allowed in the apartments or the building. For more information about the accommodation, the area, amenities as well as general rules and regulations please read the attached file "Information regarding Idun" at the bottom of the page.

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.

  • 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 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.

All apartments also have a kitchen area 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 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 (WiFi) due to security reasons, so you need to bring your own network cable. There are stationary computers available at Stockholm University, free of charge. For more information check the PDF file below.


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 and that can be as much as SEK 5000,00.


There is an insurance that covers the building and surfaces in the room such as floors and walls. Your personal belongings will NOT be covered by this. You will have to sign insurance in your home country for this. It is very difficult to get insurance in Sweden for Exchange students as you will not have a Swedish personal identity number which is required by insurance companies. It is not mandatory to have housing insurance, but we recommend it.
