Housing and Student Life

Our Housing & Student Life office is located just next to DIS classrooms, providing accessible support services to you. This department is staffed with trained employees who are on-site and can assist you in any next steps to move forward when you have a non-academic issue or question. For academic concerns, find DIS Academic Resources here.

DIS Care Team

Living in a new culture and having new experiences can be as challenging as it is exciting. Given the transitions, adjustments, and adaption you go through while studying abroad, it is important that you have support. As a current student at DIS Stockholm, our Care Team is trained to help you in times of difficulty through support services available during your time at DIS.

Members of the Care Team are Housing & Student Life administrative staff at DIS – not doctors or counselors. If a case demands professional assistance, the Care Team will advise you on how to see appropriate medical professionals.

To book an appointment, email with a brief description of what you would like to discuss, and when you are free. Someone will respond to your request within one business day. DIS Stockholm Housing & Student Life Office is located in 1E – 411.

Conversations with the Care Team are private, but not confidential. Utilizing the Care Team serves as your consent to processing of the information you choose to share with the Care Team, which may include sharing of information with individuals outside of DIS. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions about what this means before and throughout your conversations with the Care Team.

Referral to an External Provider

If necessary, DIS is able to refer you to an outside affiliated psychologist/psychiatrist or assist you in accessing other resources. In most cases, DIS insurance will be able to cover these referrals. If you decide to find your own provider, DIS can share a list of therapists or doctors who have previously worked with DIS students.

If the Care Team refers you to a trained psychologist/psychiatrist at a local clinic, and you do not show up for the scheduled appointment or fail to cancel 24 hours in advance, you will be charged 1,000 SEK.

Though the Care Team can assist you in navigating the health care system, you do not need to work through the team to see a doctor. Find details on seeing a doctor, going to the hospital, or locating a pharmacy here.
