I have been in Sweden for more than three months, can I apply for accommodation at KI Housing?
Unfortunately, you are not eligible to apply for accommodation at KI Housing if you have been in Sweden for more than three months since accommodation at KI Housing is intended to be a first place to stay when a researcher/student comes from abroad.
I am bringing my family, can I get a family apartment through KI Housing?
It may be difficult to be offered a family apartment, since KI Housing has few apartments that are bigger than a studio. If you do not get a housing offer for a family apartment from KI Housing, you can use our corporate agreements. For further information about those agreements, we refer to the information written at this link.
Where am I most likely to be offered housing?
It is generally easier to receive an offer for a room than an apartment.
However, if you are interested in a studio apartment, the area with the shortest queue is Larsberg, where we have many studios.
If you are a non-prioritized student, we recommend you to apply for our rooms at Jägargatan and KI Residence Flemingsberg.
The rooms at Strix and Pax are only offered to exchange students and fee-paying masters.
How can I increase my chances of getting housing?
It is important that you have stated the information given at this link and that the information is correct when submitting the application. It is also important that you have uploaded your letter of acceptance/invitation; otherwise your application will not be processed.
When you apply, add as many accommodation areas as possible to your preference list to increase your chances of getting a housing offer. However, it is important that you have read all information about the accommodation areas so that you only add the alternatives to your preference list that you can afford and that you are willing to accept.
When do I have to apply to have a chance of receiving an apartment/studio offer?
If you only are interested in an apartment/studio (not a dorm room), we recommend you to apply for accommodation at least a couple of months before your requested moving-in date to have a chance of receiving an apartment offer. The sooner you can apply for housing, the bigger are your chances. We also recommend adding several apartment/studio alternatives to your preference list to increase your chances of receiving an offer. However, do not choose alternatives that you cannot afford.
When do I have to apply to be certain of receiving a room offer?
As our applicants ask for accommodation for a limited time and usually from a certain date, it is difficult to estimate when you have to apply for housing. In each case it depends on the availability of accommodation and the demand for accommodation during the specific period.
If the applicant comes through a central agreement or a certain exchange program, they may have priority. Other international students and researchers are offered the remaining rooms. The availability depends on the number of accepted priority students.
I am an exchange student/fee-paying master and would like to bring my partner. Can I get an apartment through KI Housing?
Exchange students and fee-paying masters are only prioritized for our dorm rooms and those are intended for single occupancy only. You can apply for an apartment but you will not have priority and you need to send us an email asking to add apartments as alternatives on your preference list.
I am an exchange student/fee-paying master. Can I be certain of receiving a room in the accommodation area I applied for?
As there are many exchange students/fee-paying masters coming, you cannot be certain to be offered a room in your first preferred area. Make sure to apply for several areas (Strix, Pax, Jägargatan and KI Residence Flemingsberg) to increase your chances.
What students have priority for accommodation at KI Housing?
Undergraduate exchange students and tuition fee-paying master students have priority to our rooms at Strix, Pax, KI Residence Flemingsberg and Jägargatan.
