The studios and rooms are reserved for international degree students moving to Finland, who have been accepted to complete a Bachelor's or Master's Degree at the University of Helsinki and are liable to pay tuition fees. This group also includes students who have been awarded a Tuition Fee Grant.
The application period ends on May 23. The sooner you are able to pay the tuition fee the better chance you have to secure an apartment. You can receive a housing offer only if you have paid your tuition fee.
The Unihome studios are located on Vuolukiventie. Hoas aims to offer you an apartment close to or with good connections to your study campus, unless you wish otherwise. Please also note that you may receive an offer for a different accommodation type than what you selected in your housing application. Hoas will send its housing offers at the end of June, Unihome's housing offers might be sent already before that.
If you apply for housing from this quota, please refrain from applying for an apartment directly through Hoas’ website until you know whether you have received housing from this quota. Otherwise there is a risk that your applications will get mixed. Apartments in this quota are furnished, unlike apartments that you would apply for directly from Hoas.
Terms and conditions regarding Hoas and Unihome apartments
- You will need to pay a 500 euros deposit when accepting the housing offer.
- The residence period is only for the first study year, from the 1st of August to the 31st of July with a fixed-term contract that cannot be terminated in the middle of the term. After this fixed term rental agreement you can apply for a standard unfurnished apartment from Hoas. Please note that neither Unihome nor Hoas can guarantee that they can offer you an apartment after the fixed term rental agreement has ended.
