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.

The courses and the teaching methods were exceptionally good. I really liked the interaction between professors and students that in Italy is actually almost inexistent. Stockholm is my favourite city ever, how could I not recommend it? The sea, the colours, the nature, the sunsets, the people, the hipster stores, the kindness, the vibrant cultural scene.
