Wenner-Gren Foundations offer apartments for foreign guest researchers working in laboratories in Stockholm. The Center is situated close to the city center as well as to the University of Stockholm, the Royal Academy of Sciences, the Karolinska Institute, the Karolinska Hospital, the Royal Institute of Technology and the Stockholm School of Economics. Those who are accepted as tenants receive a scholarship (subsidy), which reduces the rent considerably.
Due to the very long waiting list for tenancy at Wenner-Gren Center the Foundations can only accept applications from postdoctoral scientists with a PhD-degree. The Fundation cannot accept applications from students.
Applications must be submitted either before arriving in Sweden or within six months of arrival.
Six different sizes of apartments are available from the smallest studio with kitchenette of 21 square meters (226 square feet) to the largest one with four rooms and a kitchen of 110 square meters (1184 square feet).
All utilities are included in the rent. The apartments are fully furnished and accommodate individual and family needs.
Please note: As there is a constant demand for lodging it is important that visiting researchers plan their stay at Wenner-Gren Center well in advance giving at least 18-20 months notice of their expected arrival.
Inquiries and reservations can be made with the reception desk at the address below (please do not send letters as "registered mail", they will be returned to the sender unopened). Applications must be sent by e-mail or post.
