As a special service Stockholm University tries to assist students from partner universities with accommodation. Stockholm University does not own any student dormitories and does not normally organise accommodation for students. A special exception is made for exchange students from Universities with which Stockholm University has a signed co-operation agreement.
The Housing Office manages a limited number of corridor rooms and studio apartments in Stockholm. Unfortunately, due to the high demand and shortage of accommodation in Stockholm, we cannot guarantee accommodation for every exchange student and we cannot provide housing for students with children. During the autumn semester we cannot offer accommodation to international master students, or to students that are here on an Erasmus internship. If we have vacancies during the spring semester we may be able to rent out rooms or apartments temporarily to international master students or students that are here on an Erasmus internship (only until June 30). As it is very hard to find accommodation in Stockholm, we advise students that have not been given accommodation through the Housing Office to start looking as soon as possible.
Exchange students that will study at Stockholm University for the autumn semester 2014 will receive an e-mail on May 20 with information on how to apply for housing. You cannot apply for housing any other way!
Exchange student that will study at Stockholm University for the spring semester 2015 will receive an e-mail on October 20 with information on how to apply for housing. You cannot apply for housing any other way!

In order to be able to apply for housing you need to be an exchange student who is registered at Stockholm University for studies. Please observe that we cannot provide housing for students with children.
