There are several student residences around the city to choose from, varying in size and location. I can only speak from my perspective but if you are looking to meet loads of people and experience student life like none other, go for Flogsta. Depsite being the furthest from the city center, Flogsta has made its reputation over the years: 10 buildings of student housing with more than 150 students per building (local and exchange) means it gets wild. Rooftop parties, corridor parties, sauna parties, you name it. While it does get out of hand from time to time, it is generally the best experience you can have in Uppsala, the proximity to other students means you're always meeting new people, and there are always plenty of activities going on. Unless you need an extremely calm working environement, look no further. Facilities are good with washer/dryer machines, bus connections, ICA supermarket, convenience shop and sport center all close by.
