Stockholm, Sweden

Many original campus buildings were constructed in the early 1900's, but the university soon outgrew its small, prominent nature and expanded with new buildings in the early 1990's. Today, KTH has several campuses throughout Stockholm and the outside county to accommodate the many students studying at KTH. The university is highly regarded in both the community, the country and the rest of the world. 

Stockholm itself has a population of over a million people and is known for green landscapes and beautiful waterways. 


Housing is not guaranteed to exchange students, but applying in advance to secure a place on campus is encouraged.
