SKH is in a very limited capacity to help with housing. Below we have listed some tips to make your search a bit easier. Remember that finding private accommodation in Stockholm may be hard work, but most students find somewhere to live after a while.
The following sites are agencies and/or offers information about student accommodation and other accommodation alternatives:
Study in Sweden
SSCO – Stockholms studentkårs centralorganisation
Hostel, hotel and Airbnb
Alternatively, you can contact one of the hotel/hostel/airbnb agencies in Stockholm before or on arrival. This should only be considered as a short term solution, since it’s a pricy one, while trying to find long term accommodation. See the site Swedish Youth Hostel Association.
- Contact one of the Student Unions at SKH so you can ask students who are already living in Stockholm. They might need a roommate or know of free rooms.
- Contact your embassy in Stockholm to see if they have any contacts or information to offer, or if you can place an add with them.
- Check the notice boards at the university for notes on subletting of apartments and rooms.
- Check the newspapers for available accommodation. There are a number of second hand letting agencies in Stockholm. Most of them have in common that they charge quite a steep fee for access to their registers of available flats and most of these flats have high rents and are for short term rental only.
Student accommodation through SKH
SKH has three rooms located in the student housing area of Lappkärrsberget (Lappis) for rent. Let us know if you are interested in one of these rooms, but kindly be aware that normally there are more incoming exchange students than rooms available. Therefore, we ask you to be prepared to find housing on your own.
