On what basis are the apartments rented?

We always try to find a housing solution that supports the studies. Hoas aims to offer the housing based on the order of the application submitting date. However, the main criteria for Hoas when providing furnished apartments is the information received from the schools in Finland. Meaning that the person who has been waiting the longest is not always automatically the first applicant receiving the housing offer.

We try to offer the applicant an apartment that is located within a reasonable distance from your school or has good public transport connections.

  • Hoas classifies public transport connections as good if a one-way travel takes maximum of 55 minutes to your destination.

Hoas aims to offer the apartments according to the chosen housing types on the application. In case the preffered housing types are not available any longer, or the distance is too long, applicants can be offered another housing type. Due to a large amount of applicants Hoas can not guarantee a specific location or type of accommodation.
