Housing services

At SSE we have a small housing office that offers rooms and apartments to some of our international master students, incoming exchange students, PhD students, guest researchers and visitors affiliated with SSE. Below you can see what we can offer and also read more about what might suit you. Since Stockholm is a highly attractive city in many ways, the selection is limited and we can’t – unfortunately – offer housing possibilities to all of our applicants. We, therefore, recommend you to keep your eyes and engagement wide open and start looking for alternatives as soon as you can.

Library services

The Library aims to be the principal information resource for SSE students, researchers and staff.
