Only four of Sweden's 32 student towns can offer housing to students within a month, news agency TT reports. According to the National Union of Students, the nine biggest university towns have no available accommodation at all. Almost half of the towns boast about a housing guarantee for students, but the student union says this is often just dishonest marketing.

According to the union, an acceptable offer of housing should not be a sub-let apartment or somewhere far outside town, and the rent must be affordable.

TT reports that students hoping to study in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Lund or Uppsala will have to wait 2-3 years before they will be able to get student housing of their own.
