Stockholm offers a range of housing opportunities, but finding accommodation can take time so you have to start 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 some need to find housing on their own.
Accommodation through KTH
Certain student groups are guaranteed housing from KTH Accommodation during their study period. All tuition fee paying students and students holding a tuition fee waiver are guaranteed accommodation for up to 23 months (depending on the length of study programme and contract start). Students admitted to an Erasmus+ programme as well as EIT and Science without Borders students are also guaranteed housing, usually for up to 11 months depending on contract start. The accommodation offered through KTH Accommodation is located around Stockholm within commuting distance of all campuses. The rooms are mainly single rooms in corridors but there are also some studio apartments.
KTH Accommodation also try to assist exchange students in finding housing during their studies. KTH Accommodation does not provide or assist in providing housing for degree students from EU/EEA and Switzerland, but there are lots of ways of finding accommodation on your own.
Finding accommodation on your own
Finding housing in Stockholm can take some time so start looking as soon as possible. It is wise to start by joining theaccommodation 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 can usually get something. Then start looking for accommodation through other housing companies and private ads.
