Student services

At a student office (also called course office) you can e.g. re-register for a course, pick up exams or purchase course compendiums. What office you should turn to depends on which school/department is responsible for the course. If you have questions about what course to choose or your studies on your program, you should instead turn to your education office or programme counsellor. 

Housing services

For exchange students and master students from the EU there is unfortunately no guarantee of receiving a housing offer from KTH. Therefore and due to the housing situation in Stockholm, it is a good idea to start looking for private accommodation as soon as possible.

KTH Accommodation does not assist students in finding housing external to KTH, the service of KTH Accommodation consists only of offering housing from the locations we manage. 

Library services

In 1825 the foundation of the KTH Library was laid through the first purchases and donations. Nowadays, the focus of acquisition is on electronic resources. The library takes great account of requests from students, teachers and researchers when acquiring resources or starting new subscriptions.

The KTH Library provides e-journals, e-books and databases via subscriptions, purchases and open access. 

Medical services

The Swedish healthcare system is financed by social insurance that provides all citizens with subsidised healthcare through the government. There are both public and private providers of healthcare.
