Stockholm offers a range of housing opportunities, but finding accommodation can take time so you have to start looking early. The vast public transportation system makes it possible to study in one part of Stockholm and live in another. Some international student groups are guaranteed housing through KTH while others need to find housing on their own.

Regardless if you receive accommodation through KTH or not, we recommend that you join the SSSB  accommodation queue. SSSB is a public housing queue for students and you can apply 90 days before you become a student union member, which is a requirement. You will not get housing through SSSB right away but after about a year in the queue you will usually get an offer. Once you've joined the queue, start looking for accommodation through other housing companies and private ads.

How far away from campus can I live?

The average commuting time in Stockholm is 40 minutes single journey. To find out if the accommodation you are interested in is within commuting distance from the campus you can use the travel planner on the website of SL (Public transport in Stockholm).
