Kungshamra

Kungshamra accommodation area is located a short bus ride north of Stockholm University Campus Frescati. Here we rent a total of 86 corridor rooms that are available to exchange students at Stockholm University.


Location and room information

This housing area was built in the mid-sixties and is located between Ulriksdal’s castle and Bergshamra centrum. The buildings are owned by SSSB, and are between two and four floors high.

There is a mix of corridor rooms and apartments, however Housing Office only provides corridor rooms, with 8 to 12 rooms in each corridor. All rooms are 18-19 square meters large, have a private bathroom with a shower and WC, and access to a common kitchen shared with the other students living in the same corridor. All corridors are mixed gender and mixed nationality.


Important information for spring semester 2019 and autumn semester 2019

Please note that kitchen renovations and bathroom renovations are currently taking place in some of the buildings at Kungshamra. There will be construction work taking place every weekday, so all tenants staying in Kungshamra must be willing to put up with any noise connected to this construction work and no compensation will be offered for this.

At the moment we do not know if any of our rooms will be directly affected by these renovations so if you choose Kungshamra on your accommodation application please note that you will not be able to switch accommodation if it turns out that your bathroom, and/or the kitchen in your corridor will be affected. Tenants that are directly affected by kitchen renovations will be given a 40% discount during the period they are affected.


Application Information

The corridor rooms at Kungshamra are only for single occupancy and are only available for exchange students. All other international students are not eligible for this accommodation.

You cannot choose a specific room, a specific size or a specific floor on the accommodation application. However, you may specify if you would prefer a small room, a big room, a cheap room, a room on the ground floor, a room not located on the ground floor and so on under "additional information" on the application form.

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.


Amenities

All corridor rooms are furnished with a bed (size: 200 cm long and 90 cm wide), a mattress, a desk, a chair and a wardrobe.  Some rooms may have curtains, blinds or extra lamps and chairs which were left by previous tenants for your use.  However, these are not provided by the Housing Office and cannot be guaranteed. You must bring your own quilt, pillow, sheets and towels.

The kitchen is equipped with refrigerators, freezers, private cupboards and a stove (with oven and hot plates).
