In Sundsvall, Mid Sweden University recommends two different housing companies and areas of student accommodation to international students. You need to be admitted to at least 15 credits per semester to qualify.


Mitthem is the municipal housing company in Sundsvall with a good selection of different accommodation options, note all accoommodation is unfurnished. Nacksta is a popular home among international students, as the area offers a variety of accommodation options. Many students take the opportunity to share a 2-4 bedroom apartment (Swedish and International students). This means that students will have their own private room, but share kitchen and common areas together with a number of other students. It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to walk to campus and there is also a regular bus service.

Arrival and keys

You can collect your keys during the  opening hours of the housing companies. Mitthem are open Monday to Friday 08.00 – 16.00 with exception for Tuesdays 09.00-16.00. For Diös please contact Catrin for information about opening hours.

If you arrive outside these opening hours, or if your accommodation, for some reason, is not available on the day of your arrival, we advise you to book a hostel/hotell for the night and collect the keys when it is possible. In Sundsvall we recommend Sundsvall City Hostel. You can also book our pick-up service, this service includes a key exchange service. This means that students applying for this service  before the deadline (21 December) will receive keys to their accommodation upon arrival at the train station, bus station or airport in Sundsvall. The student Union will pick up the keys at the Mitthem or Diös Housing Company (no other companies) and hand them over to you.

Rent furniture

Keep in mind that accommodation is usually unfurnished in Sweden. Students can easily rent furniture through Northfurniture (NOTE NEW COMPANY) or buy furniture cheap at local second hand stores or the large shopping area Birsta. More information about Housing in Sundsvall can be found at the Student Union website.
