Apply to be a Hoas host for exchange students! (latest by 30.6.)

7 June 2021

We are looking for hosts to make Junailijankuja, Kitarakuja and Klaneettitie a home for exchange students from 1.8.2021 until 31.5.2022. The aim is to improve guidance and comfort of living.

There will be two hosts in both of the areas (Pasila&Kannelmäki) who work together as a team. They are the link between Hoas and the tenants. In addition, hosts’ tasks include organizing social events for the students (e.g. a welcoming event), helping them in their questions regarding housing, hosting the Junailijankuja and Kannelmäki Facebook groups and reporting about difficulties and defaults in the building.

We are looking for students who

  • enjoy international environment
  • know the Helsinki Region
  • take initiative and have good organizational skills
  • speak fluent English
  • are used to team work; experience e.g. in a student organisation is valued
  • are not afraid to act in different situations and to supervise that the students respect the rules and peace of other tenants
  • are a bit of craftsmans and tourist guides in order to be able to help the students with everyday troubles.

Hoas hosts will be paid 300 euros a month. There will be 20-25 working hours every month. You will also get valuable experience working in an international environment and get to know people around the world. The work task requires living at Junailijankuja or at Klaneettitie from 1.8.2021 until 31.5.2022. Hoas will reserve apartments for the hosts, but they need to pay the rent themselves.

Send your application latest on 30th of June 2021 to tenantactivity[at] Write on the title field ’’Hoas host application 2021 and your name’’. Please tell on the application which area your wish for.
