Housing Opportunities🏫

HOAS (The Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region)

HOAS, is a really good go-to platform in your search for accommodation in helsinki. Students who have received the admission letter from the host university can apply for student accommodation through HOAS 4 months before the move-in date.

Vuokraovi, are one of the most popular housing platforms in Finland, and should certainly be given a shot in the search for housing.

A good plan C is Oikotie. The platform has a wide range of vacant homes, but unfortunately the site is just in Finnish.

AirBnB or Forenom Hostel Helsinki Pitäjänmäki

In an emergency where you may be late or don't just find the right student accommodation, AirBnB is a well-known alternative. However, we would particularly like to designate Forenom Hostel Helsinki Pitäjänmäki which is a temporary hostel for accommodation in Helsinki, as it is reasonably prices and is close to the campus.

Jeg ledte efter et freemover-ophold i udlandet gennem Uniclub, og jeg fik noget af den bedste service, jeg har oplevet. De tog sig af alt det praktiske, og fjernede næsten alt det besvær med arbejde, det kan være at ansøge om et udvekslingsophold.

Jeg skal til Australien i et semester, og før jeg fandt Uniclub, virkede hele ansøgningsprocessen umulig. De her gutter er simpelthen de bedste. De har det rigtige svar på bogstaveligt talt ethvert spørgsmål, du har. De er hjælpsomme, hurtige, med fremragende service

Uniclub og Deni Isic, få min absolut varmeste anbefaling! Jeg havde en drøm om at komme til Japan, der virkede fjern og uhåndterlig, men Deni og resten af Uniclub har hjulpet mig gennem hele processen.

Jeg er lige vendt tilbage fra mit udvekslingsophold i Irland, hvilket ikke ville have været muligt, hvis det ikke var for Uniclub. Hvis du leder efter en udveksling som freemover, så kan jeg ikke anbefale UniClub nok!
