Student housing application

You can apply for an apartment as soon as your study place in the Helsinki metropolitan area has been confirmed. The more residential areas and apartment types you choose for your application, the better your chances of getting an apartment.

You can also apply for an apartment for a shorter stay in the Helsinki metropolitan area. A student who has, for example, an internship related to studies, studies or summer work in the Helsinki metropolitan area can apply for an apartment for a fixed term.

Exchange student housing application

You can apply for Hoas furnished apartments for exchange students if you are participating in an exchange student program in one of our co-operating schools. The application period for exchange student apartments begins on 1 April for the autumn semester and on 30 September for the spring semester. An exchange student can apply for an apartment during the application period even before the study place in Finland has been confirmed.

Exchange students can have an exchange student housing application and a student housing application valid at the same time.
