Housing guarantee at Uppsala University
Uppsala University will guarantee an offer of housing to all fee-paying Bachelor's and Master's students and several other groups of students attending the university through collaboration agreements prioritised by Uppsala University management. This may include formal exchange students. The housing guarantee also applies to scholarship recipients.
Students are offered housing for the duration of their studies provided they have submitted their housing application before 31 May. These students are provided with a fully-furnished dormitory room located in one of the student housing areas in town. Room sizes can vary between 19-48m2 and some have a private kitchen and bathroom while others are shared. Rent will cost between SEK 3800 and 6300 per month.
The housing guarantee is only offered for the individual student. Unfortunately we are not able to provide accommodation for accompanying family members. Students bringing family members along are responsible for finding their own accommodation.
Please note, for guaranteed accommodation, students must apply on time. More information can be found on the University Housing Office's website.
All other students, including non-fee-paying Bachelor's and Master's students, are responsible for organising their own accommodation while in Sweden. There are a number of different housing options for international students, including student dormitory rooms, apartments and share houses. To find accommodation, students are usually required to put their name in housing queues. In most cases, students will earn points based on the amount of time they have been registered.
