When you are offered an accommodation with SSSB you sign your rental agreement online via My pages.
Collect the keys to your new accommodation
You collect the keys to your new accommodation at your local house caretakers’ office. Addresses and maps to the house caretakers’ offices »
When you collect your keys you must bring the following with you:
- Receipt or bank statement proving you have paid your first month’s rent. You’ll find your first rent slip under the heading “My invoices” on My pages.
- ID document (passport, Swedish driving license or ID card)
If you have a Swedish personal ID number but no Swedish ID you must also bring a civic registration certificate that is no more than 3 months old. You will find information about how to order a civic registration certificate at the Swedish Tax Agency website. Go to the Swedish Tax Agency website »
The moving-in date is the 1st or 16th of the month. If this is a Saturday, Sunday or a national holiday, you will have to wait until the following weekday before you can move in. Normally, you can collect your keys at the house caretakers' office on your moving-in day 1400 hrs at the earliest.
You don’t have to collect your keys on the day the agreement comes into force. You can do it a few days afterwards as well. You will be charged rent from the date the agreement comes into force regardless of whether you move in on your moving-in date or later on.
The moving-in date cannot be changed however, even though the present tenant moves out before his/her period of notice ends. The most important reason for this is that if something would happen in your accommodation eventual insurances will not be valid until the day that your agreement with SSSB begins.
You should never accept keys or electronic key cards directly from the previous tenant, nor should you hand over your keys/key cards to the next tenant. SSSB must always check that the all keys/key cards have been returned. We will have the locks changed if there are keys missing.
Your new apartment is inspected by the house caretaker before you move in. You can view the inspection report at My pages under My apartment from the day your agreement comes into force. The report shows if any repairs are to be made in the apartment. You can also add remarks to the report within 7 days after moving in, if you think that more adjustments should be made.
Things to do before moving in
There are a number of practical things to do before you move in to your new accommodation. These include paying your first month’s rent, registering for broadband, changing your address, take out an electricity subscription (does not apply to everyone!), etc.
Pay the rent
You must bring either a receipt or bank statement with you proving that you have paid the first month’s rent before you can collect the keys to your new home. You will find your rent slips under the heading My invoices at My pages.
Your rent for the next calendar month must be paid on the last weekday of the preceding month at the latest, e.g. you pay your rent for February on the last weekday of January. SSSB do not send out any reminders.
As a tenant with SSSB you will receive your rent slips to My invoices at My pages. The online rent slips contain all information you need to be able to pay your rent. More information about you rent »
Get home insurance
If you have a Swedish personal ID number, you are covered by Trygg Hansa free of charge for your first two months as an SSSB tenant. After that, you will be asked whether you want to continue to be insured by them. Read more about home insurance »
Take out an electricity subscription (does not apply to everyone!)
In many of our accommodation units, the electricity is included in the rent. If electricity is not included in the rent, you must contact an electricity company and take out a subscription. Please not that heating and water are included in the rent for all SSSB apartments. Information on how to subscribe »
If you move into accommodation with individual electricity metering, SSSB takes out the subscription for you and then charges you for the electricity you use each month. Read more about individual electricity metering »
Change your address
When you move, you are obliged to notify the authorities of your new address. You do this free of charge at www.adressandring.se » Always give your complete address and remember to also state your apartment number so that the mail will get through to you.
A number of important authorities, organisations and companies will then be notified of the change through the Swedish Population Address Register (SPAR). You must change your address at least five (5) days before you move.
Remember also to notify others of your move, e.g.:
- Your telephone service supplier
- Any newspaper/journals you may subscribe to
- Svensk Radiotjänst (your TV license), www.radiotjanst.se »
- Your home insurance provider
Activate your place on the SSSB waiting-list
Once you have signed a rental agreement, your waiting-list credit days will be reset to zero. Don’t forget to reactivate your place on the waiting-list to start collecting new credit days.
Other useful information
Information about broadband
You activate your broadband once you have moved into your new home. This is done via a portal that can only be accessed from the broadband socket you wish to activate. The portal appears automatically the first time you open your web-browser after connecting your network cable in the new apartment.
1. The activation portal is only available in Swedish but Tele2 has done a manual to make the activation easier. Download the manual for Tele2's activation portal »
2. To be able to use the activation portal you need a Swedish Social Security Number ("personnummer"). If you don't have that you need to activate your new broadband by calling Tele2's Customer Service on 0772-25 25 25.
3. The Tele2 Customer Service's interactive voice response is only available in Swedish. You can download instructions on which button to press to be put through to the right agent. Download the manual »

Log in to My pages on a regular basis
Get into the habit of logging in to My pages on a regular basis. On My pages you will find both news and important information that you as an SSSB tenant may need. Use the same log-in details as before.
Tenancy review every term
Every term, SSSB carries out a tenancy review to ensure that you are entitled to rent student accommodation from us. As long as you have gained at least 15 university credits registered in Ladok for the term in question and are a member of a student union affiliated to the Stockholm Federation of Student Unions (SSCO), you will be automatically approved. Please note that you must have gained your credits at a university whose student union is affiliated to SSCO.
You can track your tenancy review on My pages and see whether you have been automatically approved or whether you need to submit proof of your study results to SSSB and/or become a student union member. Read more about the tenancy review »
