The Housing Office at the International Office at Stockholm University manages a limited number of rooms in Stockholm. Unfortunately, due to the high demand and shortage of accommodation in Stockholm, housing is not guaranteed for every exchange student. Therefore, it is critical that you apply for housing early and before the specified deadlines. Housing is typically a single room that is in a student residence with a shared kitchen and/or bathroom.
Students can learn more about their accommodations by visiting Stockholm University housing.
The UW Study Abroad Office can't officially advise you about visas.
The volume and diversity of students participating, the shifting requirements of foreign governments, and the complexity of these applications make it impossible for us to accurately advise you on immigration policies.
If your program requires a visa, documentation will be provided from your host institution after your acceptance.
As a participant of a university exchange, you pay an exchange fee equivalent to UW tuition (1.5 quarters of UW tuition for semester-long exchanges, and 3 quarters of UW tuition for academic year exchanges). Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and UW Study Abroad Office administrative fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad. In most cases, you pay housing fees directly to the host institution or housing facility. You should also budget for additional expenses such as international airfare & transportation, books & course materials, visa & passport fees, study abroad insurance and personal expenses.
