Skrapan – Living in the Centre of Stockholm

In my last weeks’ post, we travelled through life at Lappis. This week, we explore other student accommodation – Skrapan. If you are the one who isn’t comfortable sharing your kitchen with 10 other people or doesn’t want a party place like Lappis but still wants to be in the centre of Stockholm, then Skrapan is the place for you.

The best thing about Skrapan is that its right in the centre of Stockholm with Gamlastan just a stone throw away.

This adds to the vibrant feeling of the place with shops and malls around. Every Saturday there is a flea market happening on the campus where you get to buy things from fresh groceries to antic jewellery and second-hand items. Occasionally there would be open theatres and plays to keep you entertained.

The apartment would be shared by two people consisting of a hall, kitchen and a bathroom. But the thing which stands out the most is the big windows which every room has. This gives access to amazing views, especially during this quarantine. I will let the pictures do the talking here.

It also has an active basketball court. The rent is, of course, cheaper here than Lappis. Being in the centre of the city, the metro station is just outside the campus. Unlike Lappis which only has ICA, there are tons of options for shopping at Skrapan. The backside of Skrapan would be the student community isn’t that organised as in Lappis and it would feel like staying in any private apartment.

Hej, I am from India currently pursuing Integrated Product Design at KTH. Moving to Stockholm has given me an opportunity to explore the new city like a local yet maintain the awe of a traveler. The vibrant KTH campus and its activities are itself a treat to a creative and aspiring mind. Join me on this journey of stories as we meet amazing people, exploring the innovation and sustainability pursuits happening throughout the KTH campus and the historical treasures of the city and the ways of employing jugaad to survive on a budget in one of the most expensive cities.
