In most cases, there are two pieces of each item in shared rooms and shared studios, one for each tenant. However, some apartments do not have two pieces of all items due to lack of space. Studios do not have a separate desk or set of drawers due to lack of space.

The furnished Hoas apartments are non-smoking, and pets are not allowed. Unfortunately, Hoas has no allergy-free apartments available. Read more on what is included in the rent.


What do I need to get myself?

For the international exchange student apartments you must acquire the following items for the apartment:

  • Towels
