Practical Information


Stockholm University will assist the Penn State Law students, as far as possible, in arranging university housing and will provide appropriate assistance in matters of health, language, and local custom that may arise. However, due to shortage of rooms there is no guarantee of student housing. If you are not offered a room through the Housing Office you will get information on how to find housing on your own. There is usually also a second housing lottery once the semester starts for those who still haven’t found housing. Please direct all your questions regarding housing to the Housing Office:
