Similarly to when I applied to Linköping I couldn’t find any accommodation. In Umeå (and probably all Sweden) Master students from EU and Sweden have to find accommodation on their own. I tried all the options, and still couldn’t find anything affordable and furnished. Then I applied for emergency housing at Umeå Studentkår Akutrum. The pictures below are from the accommodation I was given – a big shared apartment (4 female collective), where I shared one 30 sqm room with another person.
