Welcome to KTH and congratulations on getting a position here! We are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Sweden and KTH. We are not only here for you, we will also assist your family and your spouses in their acclimation to Sweden.

If you have questions about your stay or arrival to KTH, please
contact KTH Relocation
by e-mail, phone, or we can book a video meeting with you.
KTH Relocation may not always be available if you just stop by. Please contact us beforehand if you would like to book a meeting with us.
Resident permit applications can take awhile and if you are uncertain when yours will be approved, we recommend holding off on applying for housing until you are certain of your arrival. Please note that if you are UK citizen, you will now also need to apply for a residence permit before arriving to Sweden. Residence permits can take several months for processing at the Migrationsverket. Waiting until you are certain of your arrival means that you will cut down on costs for you, and not pay for an empty apartment.
If you say no to a housing offer due to lack of residence permit, please contact us again by e-mail once you have the approval.
If you have already been allocated an apartment and will not arrive in time, you should contact KTH Relocation and consider cancelling it. We will do our best to help you in the future once your permit has been granted.
Keys and arrival
Please contact us a week before your arrival so we can arrange how you will get your keys. Please note that we may not be able to hand over keys at the last minute, since we are not always in the office.
Please note that KTH Relocation will be closed from July 18-August 5.
Due to summer holidays, we will not be starting contracts on August 1, but it will be August 8. You will not be charged for August 1-August 7 if you are given this type of offer.
