You can apply to rent a room in a DIS studentboende all year round. When you have submitted your application, you will be invited to a Zoom video interview.
To be eligible to apply for a spot at a DIS studentboende, you must be enrolled in an educational program in Sweden. Exchange students in Sweden for an academic year or semester, such as through Erasmus, are also welcome to apply. The education can be practical or theoretical: you can be training at vocational school, you can be studying at a university (bachelor, master, doctorate, etc.), or you can be enrolled in another educational program. Proof of studies is usually shown through your Mecenat student card, or a letter of proof of enrollment in your educational program from your institution.
Rent and contract
The contract between the tenant (you) and the landlord (DIS) is made on a four-month to one-year basis. If we offer you a room, you will sign a formal contract. The contract will be in Swedish according to Swedish law. The contract is dependent on you being enrolled in a study program in Sweden. If you withdraw from your education program, you can no longer live at a DIS studentboende.
There are specific expectations of the residents at a DIS studentboende. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with our expectations before you apply.

The application process consists of an online written application, and if your written application is successful, a subsequent Zoom video interview. The online application consists of you providing background information about yourself and elaborating on ways in which you will contribute positively to the living and social environment (all answers should be written in English). It is very important that you compose in-depth and thorough written answers, since applicants will be invited to a Zoom video interview based on the quality of their written responses.
Along with your application, please submit proof of enrollment in your study program (photo of your valid Mecenat student card is best). If you do not yet have a Mecenat card, proof of enrollment in your educational program from your institution is required. Please note that transcripts, an acceptance letter, and/or proof of application submission are not sufficient.
We will invite successful candidates to a Zoom video interview.
