Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region

Hoas rents out, builds and maintains housing in the Helsinki region for students who are studying full time at schools of secondary level education.

Affordable housing for full-time students

The Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region (Hoas) is a non-profit foundation, founded to relieve the shortage of student housing in the capital area.

Hoas works in cooperation with the student unions of the University of Helsinki and Aalto University, as well as 10 other university and polytechnic student unions.

Sustainability at Hoas

Strategic goals and priorities divide our sustainability strategy into sections that together aim towards the easiest and most comfortable student living in a sustainable way with smart and sensible pioneering.

By students, for students

Hoas is founded by students, for students. A student apartment is like any home – except better because it has been designed to fit the needs of a student.
