Congratulations on your admission! Getting into university is a major achievement, but for many students, the next big step is finding somewhere to live. In Sweden's major cities, where competition for housing can be fierce, this is particularly challenging. But worry not, we've put together a guide to help you through the process.

Step 1: Register for housing queues as early as possible

One of the first things you should do is register in housing queues. Many cities have specific queues for students, and the earlier you register, the better. Services like dibz can automate the process and increase your chances of finding housing.

Step 2: Explore different housing options

There are several types of accommodations to consider, including student halls, shared apartments, and private apartments. Each option has its pros and cons, so consider what best fits your situation.

Step 3: Be active in your search

Use all available resources to find vacancies. This includes online platforms, the university's housing service, and social media. Don't forget to also network with other students; sometimes, tips from acquaintances can lead to housing.

Step 4: Prepare your application carefully

When you find a housing option you're interested in, make sure your application is well-prepared. Include all necessary documents and write a personal letter explaining why you are the perfect tenant.


Finding housing as a student can be challenging, but with the right preparation and resources, it's definitely possible. By following these steps and making use of services like dibz, you'll be closer to your new home in the city of your dreams.
