What to expect from your KTH Accommodation?

In two days (May 1st), the applications for KTH Accommodation will be open, and this until the 31st of May. You may ask yourself what the accommodation look like, what is included, etc, so I’m here to help you!

There are many types of accommodations offered, ordered in increasing price:

  1. Shared room apartment: Dorm-like apartment, where you have a single bedroom with two beds for you and your roommate. You also have a kitchen and bathroom in your apartment just for the two of you.
  2. Corridor room: You get a private bedroom and bathroom, and you share a common kitchen with 8-10 other people (great for communal dinners!)
  3. Standard shared apartment: You have your own individual bedroom, and share the kitchen and bathroom with one or two roommate.
  4. Studio apartment: Loft-like apartment where you have an open-space kitchen and bedroom, with a bathroom, all to yourself!

The prices vary between 2,900 SEK and 7,500 SEK per months. Now you may ask, how do you pay? Well it’s really simple, KTH has a payment portal where you can just enter your card details and safely pay the required amount. You receive the invoice for the next month and have about one month to pay the amount.

The accommodation can be located on campus (which is usually more expensive) or more or less away from it. Lappis, for example, has a big student housing complex (some part of it is also SSSB), only one metro stop away from campus.

When you apply for the accommodation, you can state a preference of the type of accommodation you would like. This is handy if you have a specific budget you want to stick to. If you have a friend you would like to live with, you can also state it in the application, and hopefully you can live together! It is to be noted that if you have a roommate, they will be of the same gender as you.

This summer, after you’ve applied, you will receive your housing contract, which cannot be modified. If you want to accept it, you need to pay the rent of the first month, and KTH will guarantee the accommodation for you. You can sign the contract once you arrive here, at KTH Entré. Upon that, KTH will give you a duvet and a pillow, so you don’t need to bring those from home. Although I suggest bringing bedsheets and pillow/duvet covers to sleep comfortably the first night!

More details on exactly what to bring, and arrival days will be published in the following weeks, so stay tuned!
