Our services

We have a limited number of apartments that we offer to international academic staff relocating to Stockholm. We cannot take requests for certain types of housing or locations, but allocate housing according to what we have available when you register, when you arrive, and what your family situation is. You will get one offer from us, and you can accept it via your pages in Mobility Online or chose to say no and look for housing on your own. We do not have waiting lists, and we do not change offers unless a family situation changes.

If you reject our offer due to no residence permit or travel complications, please indicate that on your rejection. You are welcome to contact us again by e-mail in the future, and we can activate your application and give you a new offer. In general, if you are uncertain about your arrival or your permit, we recommend contacting us when it is a bit more certain and applying for housing then.

Our apartments

We have apartments located in Stockholm and the surrounding areas. These are furnished apartments, and are either studio apartments, one-bedroom apartments, or two-bedroom apartments, for larger families. They can be leased for a maximum of one year, i.e. for the first year you are in Sweden. We have a limited number of apartments and we will not be able to offer everyone a place. Pets and smoking are not allowed in any of our housing.
