Living in a student corridor
What’s the best thing about living in a student corridor?
“Living in a corridor room is like living with a big, international family. You get to meet people from different parts the world, socialize and get to know them and see them every day in the kitchen and feel part of a wide, international family.
We have dinner parties where we get together and cook food from all different countries. We also have board game nights.
If you’re looking for an affordable and fun place to stay in Stockholm, then a corridor room is definitely a choice for you!”
Corridor campaign – collect 1.5 credit days when you live in a corridor room
If you sign a rental agreement in a corridor room with a contract start during the period 2021-05-01 to 2023-04-30, you as a tenant can collect 1.5 credit days instead of 1 credit day per day when you have lived at the same address for at least 12 months. If you meet the conditions, you will retroactively be able to be credited with 183 extra credit days.
- needs to be a Student Union member and meet the study requirements according to our conditions for housing during the entire contract period.
- need to have a rental agreement and live in the same room throughout the period.
- shall not have any remarks, for example rent debt or unapproved subletting, during your contract period.
- who sublet your home or have a granted free term is not eligible for extra credit days. The campaign is for active students who use their home themselves.
The campaign refers to all standard rental agreements in corridor rooms with agreement start 2021-05-01 to 2023-04-30. The campaign therefore does not refer to agreements with a waiver of security of tenure.
The contract period needs to be at least 12 months but can also extend up to 24 months.
The campaign is only valid for a contract period of 12 or 24 months, ie a full year. If all 12 months of the rental agreement don’t fall during the campaign period, you will be able to be credited with extra credit days for the months that fall during the campaign period. This is provided that the contract start is within the time frame 2021-05-01 to 2023-04-30 and that you meet the requirement for a contract period of 12 months.
In a corridor room, a room with its own toilet and shower is included, but you share a kitchen and dining area with other students. Only one person is allowed to live in our student rooms.
If you live in a corridor room, you pay rent 10 months a year. This means that you will not receive a rental notice for June and July. Look for the icon below when you book.
In this type of accommodation there is a shared responsibility to keep clean and tidy in all common areas. You are expected to clean the kitchen after you have cooked, recycle and take care of your waste. You are responsible for keeping your shelf clean in the fridge and kitchen cabinets. You also need to be willing to cooperate with the others living in the same corridor/apartment. To make everything work as smoothly as possible, we ask everyone to follow the cleaning schedule that is available. Materials and tools for cleaning are bought and paid for by the tenants.
You are not allowed to have pets in this type of accommodation.
