Finding housing in Stockholm as a student can be tricky. Below we have listed some useful tips and links to help you find accommodation in Stockholm.Tuition-fee paying students are guaranteed accommodation through KI Housing for their first year, but must still apply for this on time. For other students, it is vital to start looking for somewhere to live as soon as you can. There is a lack of student accommodation in the Stockholm area, and it may take a whole semester to find a room.
