When translated to English, this simple means Stockholm’s student housing. This company provides exclusively to students accommodation in the whole of Stockholm. Here is how they introduce themselves: “The students' housing company since 1958 – Stockholm’s student housing was founded by students who wanted to do something about the housing shortage in Stockholm. Today we are the largest in student housing in Sweden and we continue to build more housing - because we want to make room for even more students!” They provide accommodation to all students who are registered members of student unions that are affiliated to SSCO (Stockholm Student Union Central Organization). Gladly, the student union of Södertörn University, SöderS, is SSCO-affiliated. First step is to become a registered member of SöderS External link, opens in new window. (https://en.soders.nu/membership External link, opens in new window.), then register yourself with SSSB. Unlike the university housing, you need to join a queue with SSSB and each day you spend as a registered member of SSSB adds up to 1 queue day. When you see an accommodation you love, you can book it, and anyone who booked it too with the highest queue days gets the offer. So, the higher your days, the higher your chances of getting your dream offer. Also, unlike other queue platforms in Stockholm, you do not need a personal number or be in Sweden to be able to have an account and join the queue with SSSB. You have a 90-day window to remain in the queue without your personal number, which is an identity/social security code you receive from Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) when you finally arrive Sweden. And least I forget, it is free to join the queue.

When it comes to accommodation in Stockholm, there are many options; although so is the demand for housing. Let me reiterate that the above two ways are from personal experience, which means that you can still find cheap accommodation in other platforms like relevant Facebook groups and websites like Blocket (www.blocket.se External link, opens in new window.) or even queue platforms that may not specifically be for students.
