Housing assistance

Formal exchange students from exchange agreements with a good balance between incoming and outgoing students are given priority for student housing, given that they submit their housing application on time and accept an offer for housing when made.

At Uppsala University there are no halls of residences, colleges or other forms of ‘university housing’. All rooms that students live in are regular rooms owned by a variety of different housing companies. These rooms are administered by the private company Uppsala University Housing Office. The Uppsala University Housing Office has a detailed website explaining all you might need to know about housing in Uppsala and Visby.
