Housing for international students
Stockholm University rents and manages furnished rooms and apartments which are owned by other landlords in Stockholm. These are available to international students at Stockholm University.
Apply for accommodation:
– Exchange students
All admitted exchange students will receive information via email on how to apply for accommodation from Housing Office. Please read more about the process and who is eligible at the link below.
– Other international students
As an international student at Stockholm University, paying tuition fees, you are eligible for accommodation from Housing Office. However, please note that exchange students are a prioritized group. Master students receiving a scholarship from Stockholm University Scholarship Scheme are also prioritized. Due to a high demand for housing from exchange students we are usually not able to offer housing to tuition fee paying students.
Finding accommodation in Stockholm
Stockholm University has a limited amount of housing, and therefore we cannot offer accommodation to all international students that have applied. For those that we cannot offer housing, please see advice below on how to find housing on the private market.
