Housing in a single room is included in the program. The single rooms are located at Klostergatan 16. This is a very central location and it’s at most an 8 minute walk to the school. Apartments are spread out, but will be within walking distance from the school, maximum walking time is approximately 20 minutes.
Good to know:
- the accommodation our students stay in has a very good standard, but they are still student rooms.
- it will not be possible to check-in earlier than program start or to stay in the rooms after the program has ended.
- the UISS provides duvets and pillows, but please bring your own bed linen and towels.
Single student room
This room is included in the course fee. Rooms are around 22 square meter. All rooms have a private full bathroom, a fridge and a pantry with a microwave, as well as internet connection via ethernet cable. Bed sizes vary between 90 and 120 cm wide. Unfortunately we won’t be able to tell you the exact size beforehand. Laundry facilities, a small gym and fully equipped kitchens are available in the common areas.

You will presumably land at Arlanda Airport, about halfway between Stockholm and Uppsala. From the airport take bus 801 or the train to Uppsala and get off at the train station. Upon arrival at the station in Uppsala, take a short walk to the student housing located at Klostergatan 16.The address where we welcome the students is Kungsgatan 27.
For directions from the station (A) to the incheck and housing location (B) and from there to the school (C) you can use the map.
Check-in times are between 9.30 AM and at the latest 4 PM. Check-in at earlier dates or times (or later than 4 PM on arrival day) will not be possible at all. It is better to arrive a day early and book a room in a youth hostel or hotel than to arrive late.
You can check in on Sundays on June 16, July 7 and July 28 between 9.30 AM and 4 PM. Rooms in the dormitories will be ready for occupancy on the date of arrival only. It is important to check in within the given hours, as an introduction to the program will start at 4.30 PM on these arrival days, followed by a dinner with students and staff.
The student housing is located at Klostergatan 16, this is student entrance for those who have received their room key. The address where we welcome the students on arrival days is Kungsgatan 27.
Upon arrival you are required to pay 1 000 SEK, or the equivalent in USD or Euro, in cash toward the room deposit before you get your key. This deposit will be returned to you at check-out if your room is clean and nothing has gone missing or has been broken.
Please note: It may be wise to exchange money at the airport or at the Central Station in Stockholm. The cheapest way is to use the ATM machines, which of course are also available in Uppsala.
If you arrive later than the above dates or hours, please send an e-mail or call well in advance, specifying your date and time of arrival. You will then receive instructions on how to proceed. Students arriving after 8 PM cannot check into their rooms, but should check into a hotel for the night.
All students will be checked out of their rooms on the last Friday of their course between 09.30 AM and 12.00 noon.
We do not do “early check-outs”.
If you have planned to leave earlier, i.e Thursday, you will have to leave your room after your check-out. It is therefore not possible to stay in your room “for an extra day”.
Day and time
A schedule will be published at the school two days before, specifying all check-out times. It will not be possible to change those times.
If you have a preference time that you would like to have, this must be stated before the lists are up.
All students need to clean their rooms or apartments thoroughly before departure.
The cleaning should include as a minimum:
- vacuum clean the floor
- mop the floor, dust all the furniture, empty the trash can
- clean your bathroom and toilet thoroughly
- empty and clean the fridge
- clean what you have used in the kitchen
Everything needs to be ready and all your belongings have to be outside the room or apartment when we come to check the room.
