Application Requirements

To be considered for a room, you must:

  • Be between age of 18 and 27 years
  • Be actively studying in Sweden (or have applied for your upcoming studies) *
  • Have at least one year left of your education
  • Have a valid residence permit in Sweden

* If you have not applied for your upcoming studies yet, you can use this document as an attachment to your application: admittance to an educational institution

Education

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. For our student housing on Södermalm, we offer a shorter, fixed-term contract. 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.

Expectations

There are specific expectations of the residents at a DIS studentboende. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with our expectations before you apply.

Application process

The application process consists of a written application, and if your written application is successful, a subsequent Zoom video interview.

In your application, provide background information about yourself and elaborate 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.
