It may take a little extra to find student accommodation in Stockholm. Here you will find some tips to help you along the way.

It is good to start in good time when you are looking for student accommodation because the queues can be long. Feel free to join several housing queues and examine your options. For example, you can share an apartment with other students or become a lodger.
