Student housing in the capital

Students wait two years for a dorm room

A Swedish student room

As the opening of the autumn semester approaches, the waiting list for student rooms for university students in Sweden is now one to two years. The head of information for SSSB, which rents out student rooms in Stockholm, says that while five years ago the wait was three months, now Stockholm students have to queue for two years to get a place to live.

The TT news agency attributes the long list to an increase in young people of university age, many international students, and the tough labor market that encourages many people to pursue higher education instead of looking for jobs.
