We strongly advise you to sign a home insurance for your stay at KI Housing. If anything is stolen from your room, or if any property is damaged or lost during your rental period, you are responsible for covering the repair or replacement costs.
Home insurance by Länsförsäkringar
The insurance company called Länsförsäkringar provides a home insurance for students that rents a housing area not exceeding 50 square meters. They accept home insurance applications also from students without a Swedish personal number.
The home insurance for students provides coverage for you and a maximum of one other person in your household who lives and is registered at the address listed on the policy. If you rent an apartment exceeding more than 50 square meters, Länsförsäkringar provides a regular home insurance as well. Unfortunately, you need to have a Swedish personal number to get their regular home insurance.
For more information about insurances, please see the website of Karolinska Institutet.
