The choice of housing varies from campus to campus, but all types of student accommodation in Sweden are generally of a high standard, and students are usually offered a furnished single room or a small (shared) flat for around SEK 2,800 per month.

As a nominated exchange student to Mid Sweden University, students can easily book a room by sending an e-mail to the proprietor of their choice through the accommodation portal on the Mid Sweden website.


Visa information

Canadian citizens must apply for a residence permit at the Swedish Embassy or Consulate in Ottawa or Vancouver. This is usually time-consuming so it is wise to apply immediately after receiving notification of results/confirmation of enrolment at Mid Sweden University.
