Idun accommodation area is located in Vasastan close to the city center. Here we rent a total of 84 studios that are available to both exchange students and international master students.
Location and room information
Idun is located north of the city center, in the area called Vasastan. This apartment complex with 7 floors was built in 1968 and is owned by SSSB. In 2013 an additional 84 studio apartments were built and these are the ones that are available from the Housing Office at Stockholm University. All studio apartments are between 20-29 square meters, have combined living area/sleeping area/kitchen area and private bathroom with shower and WC. The kitchen area has a stove (with oven and hot plates), a refrigerator with a freezer compartment.
The Idun apartments 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). When making an accommodation application you cannot choose a specific size or 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, please specify in the application that you want to share. If you have a specific student that you want to share with, please include the name of that student in your application. If you do not have a specific student in mind to share with, Housing Office will choose your roommate (it will be another international student with the same gender as you).
If you do not want to share the apartment or if the person you want to share with is your partner (and that person is not an international student at Stockholm University), please specify that you do not want to share. When you have received an accommodation offer you must then give the Housing Office the name of your partner so that we can arrange an extra key to the apartment. Please note that if you specify that you do not want to share, only your name will be on the contract, and you are thus responsible to pay the full rent for the apartment.
Also note that you must choose three different types of accommodation when you fill out the housing application. If you receive an offer, we will try to give you your first option, but please note that this might not be possible, and we cannot guarantee that the offer will be for one of these three options.
All Idun apartments are furnished with a bunk bed, mattresses (size: 200 cm long and 90 cm wide), wardrobes, dining table, two chairs, and lamps. The furniture is the same for all apartments and we are not able to change, remove or add any furniture. You must bring your own quilt, pillow, sheets, towels and network cable.
Cooking utensils, dinnerware and cleaning articles are not supplied by the Housing Office. However, these items may have been left by the previous tenant for your use.
