Stockholm Film School does not have the possibility of offering accommodation to the students.
The average price range for rooms in Stockholm is €400 to €1000 a month depending of the distance to the city centre.
There are several webpages that offer accommodations. Although the majority of rentals posted online are legit, you should always follow these three simple rules for your safety:
1. Never pay before signing the contract.
2. Ask the landlord for their personal id when signing the contract to validate their information (they will do the same with you so don’t be shy).
3. Pay the deposit only to a Swedish bank account.
