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.

I was looking for a freemover stay abroad through Uniclub and I got some of the best service I have experienced. They took care of all the practicalities, and removed almost all the hassle of work it can be to apply for an exchange stay.

I am going to Australia for a semester, and before finding Uniclub the whole application seemed impossible. These guys are simply the best. They have the right answer for literally every question that you have. They are helpful, quick, with excellent service

Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.

I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
