Tenants’ co-operation body

The tenants’ co-operation body acts as a link between Hoas, the tenants and representatives of the student unions. The co-operation body discusses matters that have far-reaching effects for the tenants. A caring and open tenant community is created through communal activities. The co-operation body offers tenants a way to have an impact on tenant activities and housing conditions.

Central themes are communality, tenant activity, housing costs, property maintenance, the general conditions of the tenancy agreement, the rules and regulations in the property and other current matters.

The tenants are able to have their say on how funds are distributed to support tenant activity. What kind of events and other activity Hoas should support and how club rooms should be furnished and equipped.

In the co-operation body the tenants and student unions have an opportunity to develop student housing in the best direction they see fit. The co-operation body has been an advocate for international students and brought up issues regarding students’ income.

The recommendations for developing the foundation’s operations given by the co-operation body are reported to the board of directors.

The tenants’ co-operation body is elected for one year at a time and it meets up eight times per year. Four of the meetings are in the spring and the remaining four are in the autumn. The themes of the meetings are confirmed for a year at a time.

The co-operation body consists of nine tenant members, a representative of the Student Union of the University of Helsinki (HYY), a representative of Aalto University Student Union (AYY), a joint-representative of Universities of Applied Sciences and a Hoas representative.

The chairperson of the tenants’ co-operation body is always a Hoas tenant and they are also a tenant member in Hoas board of directors.
