Accommodators in Uppsala
Studentstaden i Uppsala AB
This company is the largest provider of student housing in Uppsala. You should visit their website today and register yourself and start collecting “queue days”. The more you have the better. Demand for housing is always greatest during the beginning of the semester, so if you have a place to live but would like to move then doing it during October-November or March-June will mean that you will need fewer days to get a given room. They also have a special category of rooms called recentior rooms, available for newcomers, for which you do not need that many queue days, however there is a limited number of those and they are usually available at the beginning of each semester. They have a good English website and one can register in English as well.
This housing company does not have a waiting list or “queue” for its rooms, which is advantageous for students who do not have hundreds of days in a housing queue. Check there website regularly because new rooms become available often. The rooms are “corridor” rooms in a student area called “Flogsta”. Their site is available in English.

Housing at the Student nations
The nations. I am not sure if you have heard of the so called “student nations” in Uppsala. You can find out more about nations at the Student Union’s website http://www.uppsalastudentkar.nu/en/orientation/nations Each nation has its own housing for its members. It is difficult to say just how much housing is available through nations, and it is difficult to generalise about how difficult it is to get such housing, but, the fact remains that many nations have housing, and at least some of it is available for you to apply for. Because the nations operate independently, there is no central place where you can apply for housing. You will need to visit the website of each of the nations (there are 13) and find info about their housing. There are four nations that do not require you to be a member in order to apply for a room and some of these have queues that you can sign up for before the semester begins. These are GH, Kalmar, and Norrlands nations that also have queues, and Gotlands nation that you can apply for a room without being a member, but they do not have a queue. For all of these you will have to become a member once you have gotten a room, or better said in order to get a room. Specifically Norrlands nation has official room application until the 21st of April, while after that you can still apply for a room but without a guarantee of getting one. If the nation your are looking at does not have relevant information in English there are some key words that will help you. “Bostäder” is Swedish for “housing”. Look first for this link – usually nations have a special person who is in charge of housing. If you can’t find “bostäder” look for the word “kontakta” or “kontakt”. “Kontakta” means “to contact”. A good person to contact is the First Curator (Förste Kurator in Swedish), often known as 1Q. The 1Q has the highest responsibility at the nation and will be able to help you out. When contacting people in the nation’s world it is a good idea to try and write somewhat more personable in your email.
