Find a home

Stockholm is one of the hottest tech hubs in the world and the fastest-growing city in Europe. Consequently, the housing market is quite competitive. At SSE we have a small housing office that offers rooms and apartments to some of our international employees, guest researchers and visitors affiliated with SSE. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee housing possibilities to all applicants, but we will try our best to help you find a suitable home. If you want to apply for accommodation through SSE, please talk with your manager. 

We have listed a few websites with housing ads, which you can find here. We recommend you to start looking for housing alternatives as soon as you can.
