The exeption to the right to apply for a Hoas apartment when studying in the surrounding municipalities of the capital area ends on June 30, 2021. From now on the place of study of the applicant must be located in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, or Kauniainen.
Those, who are studying in the surrounding municipalities and have applied for an apartment by June 30, 2021, remain eligible for an apartment offer. The application is valid for three months or as long as the applicant keeps renewing their application. So it is still possible to renew the application and update it, but a completely new application cannot be made after June.
Summary of the changes for those studying in the surrounding municipalities:
- The chance to apply for a Hoas apartment ends June 30, 2021.
- Application made before June 30, 2021, is valid for 3 months or as long as it is renewed during its validity.
- An existing application can be renewed and updated normally.
- If you already live on Hoas or you make a new tenant agreement on the grounds of an application made by June 30, your right to occupancy remains and follows our usual rules and regulations.
