Students have the option of living with a carefully selected Swedish family or in student apartments. Our host families and student apartments may be located throughout the city of Stockholm, but never more than one hour away from the Stockholm School of Economics by public transportation. Public transportation in Stockholm is efficient, safe, and comparatively inexpensive.
Our criterion for selecting host
families is simple but
demanding: the family must
be motivated solely by their
interest in a rewarding
inter-cultural experience. Our
students are treated as family
members, not as boarders. All
students who elect to live with
Swedish families have their own bedroom.
Students may opt to live in student apartments. We typically place our students in one bedroom apartments with one American roommate or two bedroom apartments with two roommates. Please note that the arrangement in our student apartments may change from year to year. Check our web site on student housing for updates regarding the roommate situation for the semester you are considering.
Students living in our apartments have the option of being assigned “contact families” with whom they may meet throughout the semester or academic year. Upon acceptance to The Swedish Program, we will provide more detailed housing information to help you decide which option is best for you.
