For the Stockholm portion of the week, you are expected to book your own accommodation (check-out on Tuesday, June 25). Homestays will not be available.

For the Copenhagen portion of the week, DIS will either arrange your Homestay* or you are welcome to book your own accommodation (check-in on Tuesday, June 25).

Given that the conference will be held in the summer during tourist season, we recommend booking your accommodations well in advance of the conference.

*The deadline for signing-up for a Homestay in Copenhagen was March 31. This option is now closed. Thank you for your understanding!

Where is DIS Stockholm located?

DIS is located in the Östermalm neighborhood of Stockholm, only a two-minute walk from the 1912 Olympic Stadium. The main building at DIS Stockholm was completed in 2016 and is shared with the Royal College of Music Stockholm (KMH).

The building is located at the T-bana stop ‘Stadion,’ a five-minute ride from the central railway station ‘T-Centralen.’ You can use these landmarks when booking accommodations.

Arranged by DIS: Stay in a Homestay with Local Hosts

The Homestay* option is only available in Copenhagen and is limited to the evenings of Tuesday, June 25 through Friday, June 28 (with departure on Saturday, June 29). There is a fee of $400 per person (maximum two people per family).

The Homestay is one of the most popular housing options at DIS, providing a great introduction to local culture. Most of our hosts, as in U.S. cities, live in the suburbs and not in the city center, so you will travel daily on Copenhagen’s public transit system up to 60 minutes each way using a transportation pass provided to you by DIS. Homestays are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Getting to Know Your Hosts

Participants selecting the Homestay often ask what to bring from the U.S. for their host. A small gift is a nice gesture, but by no means obligatory. Some suggestions include a token from your state (e.g. food, chocolates, book, college hat or t-shirt, a bottle of liquor or wine from your home region). It is also a good idea to show some photographs of your family – your host will be curious!

Cancellation Policy for Homestays

DIS will issue refunds for Homestay fees if participation is cancelled on/before June 1. After this date, Homestay fees will not be refunded. Please contact IEC@dis.dk with questions.
