15th EASA Biennial Conference
Staying, Moving, Settling
Stockholm University
14-17 August, 2018

Finding accommodation in Stockholm

Stockholm is popular. Nordic Augusts are mild and green and pretty and people flock to Scandinavian capitals in summertime and as they all need room and board, finding last minute accommodation may prove tricky. So please make an effort to book your shelter well ahead of time to avail of the special rates hotels are offering to EASA2018 delegates - or simply to ensure you get a roof over your head at all!

Please note that conference will not sell any accommodation as part of registration, so delegates must find/make their own arrangements. A list of accommodation options follows, with the hotels listed first offering discounted rates to EASA delegates. N.B. Most of the rooms block-booked for EASA delegates will be released in late May, which means that it is essential to book accommodation soon.

The address of the main conference venue is: Aula Magna, Stockholm University, Frescativägen 6, 114 18, Stockholm
Please also have a look at the map showing all EASA2018 conference venues and the hotels, hostels and boat accommodation listed here below.

Please note that there is no guarantee for accommodation, available places will be distributed on first come first served basis, so please be quick - deadline for couch booking is 20th of June.

We would also like to invite conference participants to check out the EASA2018 conference page on Facebook where we will post up to date information about the conference. Please also feel free to use it as a tool to connect to fellow conference participants about all things related to EASA2018.

The 'Google' solution

If none of the above takes your fancy, you can always use peer-reviewed travel advice or accommodation sites such as Tripadvisor, Lonely Planet, Booking.com etc. If you are thinking of renting a place for the week, where you can do your own cooking and may-be share the costs with colleagues/family, look at AirBnB, or the “Vacation rentals” section on Tripadvisor, Booking.com or Lonely Planet and read the advice/reviews before making a booking.

For those who want to meet locals, yet keep their costs to an absolute minimum, we recommend looking at couch-surfing (remember to read the reviews!).
