Kungshamra accommodation area is located a short bus ride north of Stockholm University Campus Frescati. Here we rent a total of 86 corridor rooms that are available to exchange students at Stockholm University.
Location and room information
This housing area was built in the mid-sixties and is located between Ulriksdal’s castle and Bergshamra centrum. The buildings are owned by SSSB, and are between two and four floors high.
There is a mix of corridor rooms and apartments, however Housing Office only provides corridor rooms, with 8 to 12 rooms in each corridor. All rooms are 18-19 square meters large, have a private bathroom with a shower and WC, and access to a common kitchen shared with the other students living in the same corridor. All corridors are mixed gender and mixed nationality.
The corridor rooms at Kungshamra are only for single occupancy. They are only available for exchange students that are members by SSCO, meaning that you need to be a member of a student union (see SUS and DISK). Confirmation of this need to be sent in during the beginning of each semester. You cannot choose a specific room, a specific size or a specific floor on the accommodation application. However, you may specify if you would prefer a small room, a big room, a cheap room, a room on the ground floor, a room not located on the ground floor and so on under "additional information" on the application form.
Also note that you must choose three different types of accommodation when you fill out the housing application. If you receive an offer, we will try to give you your first option, but please note that this might not be possible, and we cannot guarantee that the offer will be for one of these three options.
All corridor rooms are furnished with a bed (size: 200 cm long and 90 cm wide), a mattress, a desk, a chair and a wardrobe. Some rooms may have curtains, blinds or extra lamps and chairs which were left by previous tenants for your use. However, these are not provided by the Housing Office and cannot be guaranteed. You must bring your own quilt, pillow, sheets and towels.
The kitchen is equipped with refrigerators, freezers, private cupboards and a stove (with oven and hot plates). Cooking utensils and dinnerware are not provided by the Housing Office, so you may have to purchase these items. However, there may be kitchen articles left by previous tenants that everyone that lives in the corridor is allowed to use.
