Improve your chances

The number of applications Hoas receives is generally high all year round, and for that reason Hoas cannot guarantee an apartment to every applicant. Your chances of getting an apartment will increase if you are prepared to accept an apartment from a wider area and willing to accept a higher maximum rent. You can update your application with the application update form.

The waiting times for the apartments in the center of Helsinki are rather long. It is good to note Hoas campus principle as well when setting are requests on the application. Maximum rent defines the highest rent you are willing to pay.

  • Please note that if you set your maximum rent for example to 300 euros/month, you will only be eligible for offers for apartments where the rent is 300 euros/month or lower.

We always offer housing primarily to basic degree students. Only in rare cases are we able to offer apartments to post-graduate students.
