Student housing is mainly organised through student housing foundations that maintain apartments around the Helsinki metropolitan region.

Student accommodation in Finland is of high standard. The apartments are in very good condition, including central heating, a refrigerator, cooking and washing facilities, and internet access. Even in shared apartments each tenant has his or her own room, and all shared apartments are either all-female or all-male. The prices vary depending on the location and the size of the room or apartment.

Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region (HOAS) maintains the majority of student apartments in the Helsinki region. HOAS offers accommodation mainly for full-time undergraduate and graduate students of both universities and universities of applied sciences but assists also doctoral students. HOAS aims to offer a suitable apartment in the vicinity of your educational establishment or in a location with good transport facilities. The rent for an unfurnished room in a shared flat is around 230 € and for apartments 350-850 € per month.

Student accommodation is also available through Finland’s Student Housing Ltd.
