Finding the right student housing at KTH

When I decided that I am going to accept the admission result at KTH, the first thing I was excited and anxious about was where would I be living? Fortunately, KTH assures accommodation to fee-paying students and scholarship students. Student accommodations are spread across the city and based on your choice of budget, proximity to the city centre, kind of neighbourhood you prefer you can choose between various places.

For more information about accommodation, register for the upcoming webinar here where you will meet KTH staff working at the accommodation office will inform you about different accommodation options across Stockholm and how to apply to it. The webinar is on 22 April 2021 at 4:00 PM CEST.

There are four accommodations that KTH offers with two student accommodations on campus and one in the north and another on the south of campus. Malvinas and Teknikringan are on campus. Lappis and Björksätra are outside the campus in the city. Each place has a different kind of accommodation with Malvinas and Björksätra being a single room apartment, Teknikringan being a shared apartment and Lappis is a corridor studio with a shared kitchen.

You can read my blog about Teknikringan here. Teknikringan is on campus and living on campus has its own advantages. You can read my blog about Lappis here. Lappis is where I lived since moving here and is quite famous for having a tight-knit student community.

I hope this blog post was useful. Maria has written an interesting blog about finding accommodations outside student housing. Do check it out.

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.
