How to apply for support offered at Stockholm University


The Department of Economics is located on the Frescati campus, A House, floor 6 and 7.

By public transport

The Frescati campus is just north of central Stockholm and can be reached either by the underground (the stop is Universitetet on line 14 to Mörby Centrum), by bus (no. 50 from central Stockholm or no. 540 from north and north-western suburbs), by train (Roslagsbanan) or by car (E4/18, Norrtäljevägen northbound). From Arlanda Airport it is easiest to take the airport bus to the Central Station, a 30-minute ride, and then take the underground from there.

By car from the city centre

Take the E18 towards Norrtälje. About 2 km after the roundabout Roslagstull, you can see the light blue coloured buildings of the Södra huset, as soon as you go under the train bridge. Turn right after the petrol station, continue straight on towards the parking area.
