Housing in Uppsala
The communal housing queue administered by Uppsala municipality.
Uppsala Bostadsförmedling is a part of Uppsala municipality and mediates first hand contracts for student apartments from Studentstaden and Rikshem, two of Uppsala's largest student landlords. Even international students who do not have a Swedish personal identity number (personnummer) can get their student housing through them. The sooner you register, the bigger your chances are of getting an apartment. Your accumulated queueing time can be used to search for other types of rental apartments within the Uppsala region, both during and after your study period.
The annual fee to enter this queue is 305 SEK. If you're offered to sign a contract there is an additional administration fee of 625 SEK.
If you don't have a Swedish personal number:
The Nations' Housing
Uppsala's 13 nations (student associations) own their own housing. Some nations have an electronic application system and some have a more manual way of managing the queueing, which means that you need to visit the nation to be able to sign up for the housing queue. A general description about the nations' housing can be found at their common site, uppsalastudent.com. At Nationsgårdarna you will find information about all nations' housing and can also register in the housing queue for eight of Uppsala's student nation housing. You can register at Nationsgårdarna's queue from the day that you turn 17.
To be able to live in a nation's housing, you need to be a member of the nation that owns the housing. For some nations, you are able to register for the housing queue before you have gotten a membership with a nation. Learn more about Nation housing.
