Accommodation Information for Students

The majority of our programmes and courses in English are given at Campus Västerås and many of the teachers/professors/faculty members you will encounter during your studies at MDH are based there. This in combination with the active international student association makes most international students choose to stay in Västerås. As a service to you we cooperate with the local accommodation agency Bostad Västerås to make it easier for you to apply for housing.

In Västerås you can choose between living in dorm style apartments with a shared kitchen, or apartments that have a private bathroom and kitchen. Many of the apartments are located conveniently close to the University. There are both furnished and unfurnished alternatives..
