Strix Armégatan 32
KI Housing administers a number of rooms for Karolinska Institutet in Strix.
The rooms are rented by Karolinska Institutet for exchange students in order to be able to offer them accommodation. Due to the shortage of student accommodation in Stockholm this arrangement is necessary.
Guest researchers and PhD students can apply for a room at Strix and Pax but only for shorter stays, up to maximum two months. Exchange students are however always prioritized for these rooms.
The landlord is the students´housing company in Stockholm, SSSB, www.sssb.se
20 student rooms, daily rent SEK 106 - 111/night, average monthly rent SEK 3225 - 3380, deposit SEK 2000
Room size approximately 16 sqm
The monthly rent is based on a daily rate and differs depending on the number of days of the month, more info

How to get to Strix
On the other side of the road you can see some big red brick buildings. That is Strix, Armégatan 32. If you take the path through the tunnel, you will shortly arrive there.
Equipment in KI Housing corridors
About half of the rooms that we dispose over are located in corridors where all tenants rent their rooms from KI Housing. In these corridors we supply basic kitchen equipment. Every student has one cupboard, one shelf in the fridge and half a shelf in the freezer. The average monthly rent for a room in a KI Housing corridor is SEK 3380 (from September 1, 2012).
Equipment in SSSB corridors
Other rooms are located in corridors where tenants share the kitchen with students who rent their rooms directly from the landlord SSSB or from other universities. If you rent a room in a SSSB corridor you might need to buy your own kitchen
utensils (sometimes there are some utensils left from earlier students that you may use). Every student has one cupboard, one shelf in the fridge and half a shelf in the freezer. The monthly rent for a room in a SSSB corridor is SEK 3225 (from September 1st, 2012).
The kitchen door should always be locked.
Furniture and other equipment in the room
Electronic key system
Household garbage should be thrown in tightly sealed plastic bags.
If you would receive a parcel too large to fit in the mailbox, you will get a notification from the post office in your mailbox of where to pick up the parcel.

SSSB Caretaker at Strix
We have an agreement with insurance company Länsförsäkringar. They accept home insurance applications also from students without a Swedish personal number. The minimum time you can pay for is 6 months and the approximate charge for this period is SEK 250 - 400, dependeing on where you stay. Application forms are available at the KI Housing office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also read information about insuranses on the website of Karolinska Institutet.
An automatic smoke detector is installed in all rooms. Remember to check the batteries regularly!
Precautions against fire
It is important not to store inflammable material such as “paper collections” in common areas (kitchen, corridors or stairwells).
In case of fire the corridor and stairwell might be full of smoke and at that time you do not want to trip over bikes, shoes etc. The evacuation roads must be free of objects. Generally to evacuate the building, use the staircase.
