It is possible to state a preference for the students who are guaranteed to receive a housing offer, however, it is not guaranteed that it will be possible to take it into account.

You can both state in the application that you would like this, but we cannot guarantee that it can be arranged.

The guarantee is only for the student and does not include spouse and/or children. We have a very limited number of apartments suitable for famiilies, but if you are planning to bring someone you need to state this in the application. For students who are not included in the guarantee (exchange students including double degree students and EU/EEA master students) it's unfortunately not possible to bring spouse and/or children.

I am expecting a package, but it doesn't fit in my mailbox, where can I pick it up?

Most likely you will have to pick it up at one of the so-called service points. However, KTH Accommodation does not have any information on where this will be, so you will need to contact the delivery company directly.
