Getting To and From Your DIS Housing
Part of living and studying in Scandinavia means that you commute by bike, bus, train, or metro, as the locals do. Whether traveling to and from classes at DIS, Field Studies, Study Tour departures, or other activities, you can expect that commuting will be a part of your daily life. In both cities, the public transportation is clean, safe, punctual, and efficient.
More and more local students live in the Greater Stockholm or Copenhagen areas and use public transportation or bicycles daily. While the commute may seem intimidating at first, keep in mind that your daily transportation will be no different than a local student’s commute.
In some housing sites, DIS students live with other DIS students, and in others, DIS students share the building with local students. You will be placed in a housing site depending on which summer sessions and courses you are enrolled in.
In addition, students studying in the Architecture and Design Session or at DIS Copenhagen for both Session 2 + 3 can indicate a preference to live in a Rented Room:
- Rented Room, only for Architecture and Design Session or DIS Copenhagen consecutive Sessions 2 + 3 students
