Finding accomodation

It can be hard to find accommodation having newly arrived in Uppsala. As a PhD student you are entitled to rent students' accommodation. The university has general information and lists of landlords with student apartments at: http://www.uu.se/en/about-uu/join-us/accommodation/, and http://www.uu.se/utbildning/studera-i-uppsala/bostad/ (in Swedish).The student union, Uppsala studentkår, has joined together with the university and local council to form a housing association: www.studentboet.se. This site also offers some useful tips and advice on finding a place to live. Many departments at the university also have some form of accommodation for rent for shorter periods of time to visiting researchers, newly-arrived PhD students etc., so do check with your department if you are struggling to find somewhere to live.
