Our apartments provide an opportunity for cultural immersion. In Stockholm, “student housing” is extremely limited, so most Swedish students live like you will be living – in private apartments spread around the city. Your everyday experiences, from doing laundry in the apartment building to shopping in the neighborhood for groceries, will allow you to interact with locals in your building and your neighborhood.
Students living in our apartments have the option of being assigned a local “contact family” or “SSE student buddy” with whom they meet throughout the semester. We match one to two students with each contact family or buddy. Upon acceptance to The Swedish Program, we will provide more detailed information to help you decide which option is best for you.
We generally place 2 to 4 students in each apartment, with 1 to 2 students per bedroom. Please note that the arrangement in our apartments may change from year to year. Our apartments are located no longer than one hour by public transportation to SSE (under normal weather conditions). However, most of our students living in apartments have a commute between 25 and 40 minutes.
