Hoas

Hoas in brief

Hoas is an example of what the student community can do together. It all began when 16 student organisations in the Helsinki area put their heads together, gathered a small amount of capital and took out a hefty bank loan. Those were the humble beginnings of the Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region, which has worked since 1969 to provide affordable rental housing for students. In a little over 45 years, that small amount of start-up capital has turned into a business with a turnover of 70 million euro and 9 400 student apartments.

Administration

The Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region (Hoas) is a non-profit foundation and it was founded to relieve the shortage of student housing in the capital area. The Hoas foundation is directed by and operated with governing bodies that include for example executive board, board of directors, managing director and tenants' co-operation body.

Values

The values guiding Hoas' operations are responsibility, fairness, considering individual needs, transparency and safety.

Corporate Responsibility

Hoas abides by the essential regulations, guidelines and principles that promote sustainable development. We expect our partners to also support sustainability.
