Housing Guarantee at Uppsala University
Uppsala University will guarantee an offer of housing to all fee-paying 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. From autumn 2016 and onwards, students will be offered housing for the duration of their studies provided they have submitted their housing application before 31 May. These students will be 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 3500 and 6000 per month.
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 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.
There are several different scholarships available to international students through Uppsala University, the Swedish Institute and the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 programme.
All students at Uppsala University are covered by accident insurance while on the university premises and on their direct way to and from school. Other international student groups may be covered by additional insurance. It is important for all students to find out what kind of coverage they will receive or need to organise privately before arriving in Sweden.
