Housing for International Students

Umeå University can assist tuition fee-paying students and exchange students, who have been nominated by their partner universities, with accommodation for a maximum period of two terms through the International Housing Office.

We can offer single-occupancy student room accommodation in student corridors. Our accommodation is off-campus, but within walking distance of the campus.

We are proud that we are perhaps Sweden's only university that offers the possibility to choose your own accommodation from our housing stock.

Our housing stock consists of some 600 student rooms that are located in five different student housing areas.
