3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
Apartments are not much more expensive than student housing and it would allow me to share it with some friends that I pick. On the other hand I could pick the location.

Sudent accomodation in Uppsala is very good but some campuses are a bit far. I would avoid living in Polacksbacken for instance. If you are sent there try to discuss it with your coordinator. If you can speak with exchange students who go to your university while you are at theirs you could try to swap rooms, that's the only way you'll get a room in the Nations dorms where there's usually a huge waiting list. The best Nation dorms are the ones of Kalmar, Ostogota, Snerikes and Stockholms.

Housing

Why?
I had a great experience there. The only minus point was that it was a bit too far from the university and the city centre compare to other campus building. Living on the campus helps you to meet student from other faculties and to better integrate the student life.

They had arranged everything before you arrive. The only thing is that you have to mention in which location you want to live as the difference between the locations are pretty big. I really appreciate the fact that they mix exchange student and Swedish student in the flat so you can learn more about Sweden and the Swedish culture.

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.

Why?
I was really happy with what was provided for me, and would see no reason to change it. I loved the corridor atmosphere, the mix of international and local students and the facilities were more than I had hoped.

The only thing I didn't have and was looking forward to, was my own bathroom. The other hassle was when I managed to lock myself out of my room, and had to wait until the next morning for a locksmith to come and open it for me because of the hours of operation of the student housing desk. Understandable I guess. The best thing about this accommodation was the interaction and social nature of living. I was at Rackarberget, while the majority of students are at Flogsta, but I think there are pros and cons of both. My location was better for a start, but Flogsta maybe better for social reasons. Still, Rackarberget was pretty damn good!

Living n such a big campus was great! You get to meet so many people from different countries. And besides that, the rooms were large and well-furnished and equiped with an own bathroom.

The location of my student house at Rackarbergsgatan was excellent. It was only a 10 mins walk from my main study building Ekonomikum. I also had the opportunity to interact with the local Swedish students and also other international students.

I had the opportunity to live in the student housing area at Rackarbergsgatan. It was great that I have the entire room to myself and there was also kitchen facilities. With only 5 tenants per apartment, I can interact with the others in ease. The only flaw is that I would have to share the toilet and shower room with the rest. But, I couldn't have ask for more!!It was a great experience, plus there was a barbeque pitch and a huge garden just outside my apartment.
