Finding accommodation in Uppsala can be a challenge, but with the right strategy and resources, you will soon call this city your home. Start by signing up with the major housing agencies and exploring the nations housing offerings. Use online platforms like Blocket and Facebook for more opportunities. And don't miss out on protecting your new home with a home insurance policy.
In Uppsala, the bike is king. There is a reason why the city is often referred to as the “Amsterdam of the North”. With a bicycle you can easily reach all corners of the city. If cycling isn't for you, don't worry — Uppsala's bus network covers all important routes and keeps you connected.
Your academic adventure will take you to different campuses such as Ångström, EBC, Geo, BMC and SLU. Mazemap is an invaluable tool to help you find the right place in the maze of the university. Each campus has its own character and we at UTN are here to help you explore them all.
The student aid from CSN is a cornerstone of many students' finances. It combines grants and loans, giving you the flexibility to focus on your studies. Be aware of your rights and obligations, and keep CSN updated on your study progress to avoid financial surprises.
Receptions and engagements in the UTN or the nations are perfect ways to meet new people and create a network. Attend events, join a nation and enjoy Uppsala's unique student culture with gasques, balls and traditions. Or why not join a committee or task force, or run a project? Your time in Uppsala is a chance to grow both personally and professionally.
On Thursdays, Uthgård turns into the city's most welcoming meeting place for students. The Thursday pub offers weekly themes, exciting flavours and a chance to hang out with new and old friends. Members of UTN enjoy discounted rates and our vice club champion always welcomes more hands to the team. Visit UTN's Klubbverk on Facebook for the latest news about our pub nights.
Café Bocken on Uthgård is the perfect place for a break. It serves everything from fresh coffee bread to filling lunches, always at prices that fit a student budget. And if you need a break from your studies, a selection of board games is offered. Remember that Swish is an option if the disk is unmanned.

If there are changes in your studies that affect your eligibility for student aid, you must notify CSN as soon as possible.
