SFS housing report

Today SFS (Swedens united student unions) released their annual housing report. This year’s report shows that students face an unsafe housing market when they start studying. In 12 cities in Sweden, students can not expect to get a home within six months, Stockholm is one of these cities. The report also shows that a number of students have rents that are not reasonable for their finances. You can read more about the report in Swedish here, and here you can download the SFS housing report.

The fact that you can not find a home should not be the reason why you do not start or continue your education, but it is unfortunately the truth for some students. Among our tips on the website, we have listed different ways to find a residence in Stockholm, both first-hand contracts through ex. SSSB but also by subletting through, for example, akademisk kvart.

 

Checklist when you’re subletting:

  • Aways take a look at the apartment before accepting it
  • Check if the person is approved to sublet by the landlord
  • Determine the rules with the person you rent of
  • Sign a contract (but do not pay any money until the contract is written)
  • Save the receipt every time you pay the rent and sign a home insurance.
