Student live: Accommodation and other housing options

You've been accepted to KI & now only one question weighs heavily on your mind: where are you going to live once you get to Stockholm? Not to fear - your KI digital ambassadors are here! Digital ambassador Gerda will be hosting a live on housing to give you an inside look at more than FIVE different student accommodations all around Stockholm. We'll be asking real, current KI students questions like:

  • Did their apartment come furnished?
  • How much are they paying in rent & utilities?
  • How long does it take them to get to KI campus?
