A shared room in a shared apartment for exchange students

Shared rooms are for two persons. This apartment type suits well for two friends arriving together in Finland for their exchange. You can also apply for a shared room on your own and Hoas will find you a roommate. Communal living in shared apartments creates opportunities to meet new people.

In order to be able to apply a shared room together, both tenants must have the same exchange period length and they must be the same gender. Both applicants must submit their own application and provide the name of the desired roommate.

Usually 6-8 persons share the whole apartment and two tenants share one lockable room together. The common areas such as kitchen, toilet and bathroom are shared with other roommates. There are separate shared apartments for female and male tenants. This housing type is the most affordable option of Hoas furnished apartments.
