Students with housing priority

If you have been invited/accepted within an exchange or cooperation agreement in which KI prioritizes you for housing, this should be confirmed in your acceptance/invitation letter.

For further information about the allocation procedure and priority order, please see this link.

What kind of acceptance letter should I submit?

Program students (admitted to Bachelor- or masterprogram)

All program students should submit their notification of result from Universityadmissions.se.

Exchange students (coming through a central bilateral exchange agreement)

An exchange student has got an invitation letter from one of the international student coordinators at KI.  The name of the student, the name of the student coordinator at KI, that you are an exchange student and what courses you are participating in must be written in the acceptance letter.  The period of study must be written in the acceptance letter as well.

For other students (if you have not received a letter of invitation/acceptance), you can ask your contact person at KI to fill in this form (download the form here), sign it and then upload it to your user account.
