DIS HOUSING OPTIONS
Living in DIS-arranged housing lets you have the independence to focus on your academics while living in safe and convenient locations within the Greater Stockholm area.
Live with Local Students:
Live as local students do in university housing. Universities in Stockholm do not have housing on their campuses. Instead, co-ed residential buildings accommodate university students across these cities. In Stockholm, these residences are called Studentboende.
Live with DIS Students:
Live with fellow students from North American universities and take part in building relationships in a Residential Community. Build a community with other DIS students and challenge yourself to engage locally, as you will have to be proactive to meet locals and get a feel for their culture. Residential Communities can be structured differently, housing a varying number of students. The Communities are co-ed residences.
DIS Stockholm offers a variety of courses in several academic disciplines. For a complete list of programs and courses offered for the current academic year, visit the DIS website
. Some summer DIS program choices will differ from those offered during the academic school year.
DIS is located in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. This crossroads of industry, fashion, politics, and research provides hands-on opportunities to explore local culture.
DIS Stockholm is an internationally renowned study abroad institution. Classroom teaching is enhanced by course-integrated field studies and study tours in Sweden and Europe. The courses at DIS are taught in English by Swedish professors who teach at institutions of higher learning or work in research, government, business or their respective professions.
Housing options include living with a Swedish family, studentboende (European-style residence hall), Living & Learning Communities, and Residential Communities. Residence halls and family stays can be located in the suburbs. Students' commutes range from 30 to 45 minutes.
