For furnished exchange student and some master's degree student apartments, the rent for the whole year is collected during a period of nine (9) months, as the furnished apartments are usually empty during the summer months. This is why no rent is collected for furnished apartments in the summer (June-August). Exception to this is address Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu 29 due to a summer hostel operating in the premises every summer.

The rent in furnished international degree student apartments is collected normally during 12 months.
