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.
