Services

Student services

Student Support Services is a resource for issues relating to student administration for schools, administration, students and prospective students.

Housing services

Students housing are found in Lappis and Björnkulla. Unfortunately, due to Södertörn University receiving more incoming students than available rooms, we will not be able to offer accommodation to all students. We therefore strongly advise students to check other accommodation possibilities as well.
