SSSB- Stockholm Student Housing Foundation

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.
