DIS HOUSING OPTIONS
Living in DIS-arranged housing lets you have the independence to focus on your academics while living in safe and convenient locations within the Greater Stockholm area.

Live with Local Students:
Live as local students do in university housing. Universities in Stockholm do not have housing on their campuses. Instead, co-ed residential buildings accommodate university students across these cities. In Stockholm, these residences are called Studentboende.

Live with DIS Students:
Live with fellow students from North American universities and take part in building relationships in a Residential Community. Build a community with other DIS students and challenge yourself to engage locally, as you will have to be proactive to meet locals and get a feel for their culture. Residential Communities can be structured differently, housing a varying number of students. The Communities are co-ed residences.
