SSSB – Stiftelsen Stockholms studentbostäder
SSCO is the governing body of Stiftelsen Stockholms studentbostäder (SSSB) which is the largest student housing company in Sweden with their nearly 8,000 student accommodations. SSCO does not however work directly with conveying housing. Instead, we continuously work towards national and regional decision makers, to improve the housing situation for students.

Instruction regarding the student housing waiting-list and student housing tenure (Swedish only) – valid until 31 December 2019
Instruction regarding the student housing waiting-list and student housing tenure (Swedish only) – enters into force on 1 January 2020
On 9 October 2019, SSCO’s board adopted a revised version of the Instruction which will enter into force on 1 January 2020. More information on what this means for you as a customer/tenant can be found here (Swedish only). If you are a tenant of SSSB you shall have received an email with this information in English. If you are queuing you should be able to find it if you log on to My pages at SSSB’s website.
There are over 90,000 students in Stockholm but only just under 18,000 student accommodations. SSCO is the governing body of Stiftelsen Stockholms Studentbostäder (SSSB), which is the largest student housing agency in the Stockholm region with nearly 8,000 student accommodations.
As a member of a student union affiliated with SSCO you have the right to queue and live in SSSB’s accommodations. You can join SSSB’s housing waiting-list before you have become a student union member, but your membership will be checked after 90 days so it is important that you join the union as soon as possible. If you have become a member within these 90 days your queuing points will continue to add up as normal. If, however, you have not become a union member, you need to pause your place on the waiting-list to not lose your credit days. The credit days can be paused for a maximum of 36 months, after which you will lose them.
For newly admitted students there is the possibility to sign tenancy against the presentation of an acceptance letter. There will however be checks during the term regarding whether you are a student union member or not.
Grounds for termination of SSSB’s tenants
Once per semester SSSB will check that those who reside in their accommodation meet the study and union membership requirements (tenancy review – Sw. boprövning). If a tenant does not fulfil these requirements, has breached their obligations towards SSSB, or have reached the maximum tenancy period, their contract may be terminated by SSSB.
If the tenant feel they have been terminated on incorrect grounds they can appeal the decision to the Housing Delegation (Sw. Bostadsdelegationen). Appeals to the Housing Delegation regarding termination shall be submitted as soon as possible, and no later than 6 weeks before the given termination date. The Housing Delegation does not handle issues received after that date.
Tenants who wish to apply for exemptions from the study and union membership requirements shall also turn to the Housing Delegation.
If you wish to send an application to the Housing Delegation you can hand in your application at SSSB’s customer service centre (head office) or send it by post to:
104 32 Stockholm
The decisions of the Housing Delegation may be appealed to the Board of Appeal no later than 14 days after the date of the decision; otherwise the appeal can be rejected. The Housing Delegation does not handle applications from tenants in rent arrears (Sw. hyresskuld).
All issues are handled by post only and appeals should be sent by post to:
113 29 Stockholm
Do not send registered letters (Sw. rekommenderat brev) as the post processing is not handled by the person in charge of the Housing Delegation and Board of Appeal.
Any other contact with the Housing Delegation and Board of Appeal is carried out via e-mail: email@example.com. The staff at SSCO’s chancellery cannot answer questions regarding the Housing Delegation and Board of Appeal.
