Student accommodation

Finding housing can be a challenge in Stockholm, but there are many ways to increase your chances of getting accomodation.

Student accommodation can be a challenge in Stockholm, which is not just the capital of Sweden but also the greatest tourist destination in Scandinavia. The city is vibrantly overflowing with life, but that means living quarters are tight.

Be active

Search housing advertisements websites, social media such as Facebook pages and groups, and ad sites such as Blocket.se. Write your own ad stating that you are looking for housing or that you want to rent a room. Always be aware of scams and do not pay anything for an apartment until you have seen it and signed a contract.

Check if your university can arrange student accommodation

Many Stockholm universities can arrange housing for their international students, so ask the international coordinator at your university and see what resources are available.
