KTH has an Accommodation Office located in the Info Center at Drottning Kristinas väg 47 (Campus Valhallavägen). KTH Accommodation rents rooms for exchange students in student housing buildings (dormitories). Rooms are also rented in apartment houses. The rooms are located in central Stockholm as well as in the suburbs of the city. KTH offers this service to some international students as the housing market is extremely difficult in Stockholm. The location of the room will depend on the number of rooms available at the moment. There is no possibility to choose your room or address, nor to change an allocated room! Exchange students will be able to mark an interest for help in finding accommodation in the same on line application form as for exchange studies at KTH. Then the KTH Accommodation will contact the student directly about the demand; confirmation is sent to the student before arrival in Sweden. Please note that the housing contract is signed upon arrival at KTH. For information and opening hours please visit their website at:
