The demand for rented housing in Sweden is high, and even for Swedish students finding somewhere to live can be hard. Therefore, you should start your research early and read about your options. As a fee-paying student at Uppsala University, you are guaranteed housing, but if you do not pay tuition you are responsible for finding your accommodation.
If you are a fee-paying student, that is, a citizen of a country outside of the European Union, European Economic Area or Switzerland, you can benefit from our housing guarantee. This means that as long as you apply for and accept your offer on time, the Uppsala University's Housing Office will provide you with a student dormitory room. Please note that you will be responsible for paying rent. The housing guarantee also applies to scholarship recipients.
If you are a non-fee paying student (from an EU/EEA country or Switzerland) then you are responsible for arranging your own accommodation while studying at Uppsala University. This can be a very competitive process. The demand for housing is always greatest during August and September, so start your search for a place to live early and put some time, energy and thought into it.
There are different kinds of housing options.
