Student Housing in Jyväskylä


With the admission letter in your hand, a lot of questions would be popping up regarding each and every minute detail of the university and the city. Among them, one important question would be Accommodation. Where am I going to live? How do I apply for housing? The city of Jyväskylä has variety of housing options, but the most preferred options by the students are Kortepohja and KOAS.

Kortepohja
First of all is Kortepohja, a student village. https://www.kortepohja.fi/en/  It is run by the JYU Student Union. The renovated Rentukka (https://jyy.fi/en/rentukka-en/) in the centre of the village adds more essence to the village as a hub for the students to get together, work out, study and eat. The grocery stores K Market and Sale, and the bus stops to the city centre are at a walkable distance. It is located 3km from the university library.

First step is to check the apartments that suits you. There are shared, studio and family apartments of rent ranging from 236-1008 euros. The rent includes internet, water, electricity, sauna, laundry rooms and recreational activities. Few apartments are furnished and if it is not furnished it is easy and affordable to get furnitures from second hand shops around the city.

Please remember that you need to be a member of the student union to live in Kortepohja by paying the student union fees. However, you can apply and secure an apartment only with the admission letter from the university and pay the student union fees after you arrive. Your student tutor will help you by collecting the keys of your apartment and guiding you. More details on the application formalities can be found here: https://www.kortepohja.fi/en/applicant/apply/applying-tips/

KOAS
The second option would be KOAS (https://www.koas.fi/en/) which is a Central Finland Student Housing Foundation that offers apartments for students around the city. As the first step, make sure to check the location and type of the apartment and the proximity of stores and the university. Apart from that, the application process is similar and you can apply with your admission letter from the university. The buildings have internet connection, laundry rooms, sauna and store rooms, as well as hobby rooms.

Apart from this you can also look for apartments here: https://jyy.fi/en/apartments/, a forum run by the student union of JYU, if you want to live in the city centre or rent it out from individual owners.

Happy House Hunting!
