We have one waiting-list for all our accommodation. Before putting yourself on the waiting-list, we kindly ask you to read through our rules.
When you register as a new customer, you start to collect credit-days, which you then use to “book” accommodation. Once you are registered, you will have access to My pages here at sssb.se. We use My pages to communicate with you and there you can find all the information you need about your place on the waiting-list and later about your accommodation.
Getting yourself on the waiting-list
To register on the waiting-list, you must fulfil certain terms and conditions:
- You must be between 16 and 54 years old.
- Your place on the waiting-list is non-transferable, i.e. you cannot give it to someone else.
If you have been on the list before, you don’t need to re-register. Simply log on to My pages and reactivate your place on the list.
Collecting credit days
To collect credit days, you must be a member of a student union that is affiliated to SSCO (Federation of Student Unions in Stockholm). The number of credit days you have is crucial when you’re looking for accommodation.
List of student unions affiliated to SSCO
You’ll find a list of SSCO-affiliated unions on the SSCO website.
90 days grace as a non-union member
When you put yourself on our waiting-list, you can collect up to 90 days regardless of whether you are a student union member or not. If, after 90 days, you have not become a union member, you must defer your place on the list and your credit days yourself via My pages, otherwise you will lose your place. If you have become a union member within 90 days, you simply continue to collect credit days.
On My pages, you will find information on when you must become a student union member in order to continue to collect credit days. You will also find information about how to put your place on the waiting-list on hold so that you don’t lose it.
Registered union member
To collect credit days, it is important that we can find you as a registered union member. Consider the following:
- If you have a Swedish personal identity number (personnummer), you must be sure to register it both with Stockholms Studentbostäder and with your student union.
- If you don’t have an identity number, you must have the same email address registered with Stockholms Studentbostäder as with your student union.
Deferring your credit days
If you stop being a member of the union while on the waiting-list, your credit days will be suspended automatically. When you rejoin the union, your place on the waiting-list will be automatically reactivated and you will continue to collect credit days.
Creditdays put on hold
If you are a member of a student union affiliated to SSCO but your place on the waiting-list has nevertheless been deferred, contact your student union and check that your membership has been properly registered. Check also that you have given the same email address and identity number to the union and to us at Stockholms Studentbostäder.
Resetting credit days
Your credit days will be reset (returned to zero) when:
- You say no to an offer of accommodation for the second time
- You sign a tenancy agreement
- When your place on the waiting-list has been deferred for 36 months.
To reactivate your place on the waiting-list, you log on to My pages.
Priority is only granted on special grounds, e.g. for medical and/or social reasons and/or disability. Being homeless, wanting to live in central Stockholm or wanting a larger apartment do not normally constitute grounds for being given priority.
Applying for priority
You apply to the SSCO Housing Delegation (Bostadsdelegationen) for priority. To apply, you must:
- Have been accepted or be already studying at an HE institution whose student union is affiliated to SSCO and
- Be on the Stockholms Studentbostäder’s waiting-list.
