Apply for accommodation other international students
All international students at Stockholm University are eligible to apply for accommodation from Housing Office. However, please note that exchange students are a prioritized group, and due to a high demand for housing from this group, we might not be able to offer freemovers housing.
Who is eligible?
All international students at Stockholm University are eligible to apply for accommodation from the Housing Office, however please note that there is a considerable shortage of housing in Stockholm. Hence, generally, we can only offer accommodation to prioritized groups, which are exchange students from partner universities and master students with a scholarship from Stockholm University Scholarship Scheme.
Student accommodation is rented on a semester basis, and charged accordingly with set arrival and departure dates.
If your studies continue for one academic year (i.e. Autumn-Spring), you can apply for an extension for a second semester later on. The maximum rental period for all students is two semesters.

To apply for accommodation, please register online at our booking system here . When your application has been submitted, it is placed in a housing queue.
