KTH Accommodation is a service to international students, assisting them in finding accommodation for their first academic year at KTH. Some international student groups are guaranteed housing through KTH while others need to find housing on their own.
About KTH Accommodation service
KTH provides this assistance in finding housing due to the difficulties of finding long-term housing on short notice in Stockholm. The service is voluntary and limited to one offer that only includes the student, not family members. If you have more specific wishes for housing than KTH Accommodation can offer, we recommend that you look for private housing options.
Thus, for students who are staying for longer than one academic year, KTH Accommodation acts as a stepping stone to finding housing on one’s own. Some student groups are guaranteed a housing offer through KTH Accommodation for a maximum of one academic year, however, a specific location cannot be guaranteed.
KTH Accommodation is a department within KTH, it operates with state funding and is non-profit. KTH leases apartments and rooms from student housing companies and building companies and then subleases these to the students, thus the amount of rooms is limited. Students pay rent to KTH and KTH pays rent to the property owner. Please note that KTH Accommodation does not provide service to individuals who want to lease a room or apartment to students.
When signing a contract with KTH Accommodation it is the responsibility of the tenant to inform her/himself of the terms and conditions of the legally binding contract.
