See the section "UNIT FILE LOAD PATH" in systemd.unit(5) for a detailed 
overview of the paths systemd looks at for unit files.  From there you can see 
that you can also put user units in your home directory under ~/.config/
systemd/user/, which is what I do (although pretty much all software I use now 
provides its own user units, so I don't have much in there now).  Of course, 
if you prefer /etc/ that is also fine and the units will be available to all 
users (so the answer is: /etc/systemd/user/ is for user units installed 
system-wide *by the administrator*).
