  • Andrahand.se. List of sublets available for rent. Swedish only.

  • Bytalyn.com. Another online resource for second-hand rentals. Some services are free, but it costs 189 SEK for one month of full access. Swedish only.

  • Stifelsen Stockholms Studentbostäder. Student housing agency in Stockholm.

  • List of student housing agencies around Sweden. Swedish only.

  • Studentlya.nu. Second hand rentals for students.

  • Dagens Nyheter.Click on 'bostad' in the top navigation bar. Then scroll down to 'Leta bland privatannonserna' (search private listings) and 'uthyres.' Swedish only.
