There is no actual application period for student housing, but applications can be submitted on a continuous basis. Applications for housing must be submitted using an electronic application form.

You can leave your application as soon as you know that you have obtained a study position in Kouvola. The application is valid for 3 months, after which it must be renewed if you want to continue your application. The application can be renewed either by telephone tel. 020 615 8911 or e-mail opiskelija-asunnot(at)

Granting of housing

Housing is primarily granted in the order in which the applications arrive. However in the beginning of semester priority is given to the new students who come from outside Kouvola.

We send housing offers to those who have been granted housing. We aim to inform those who need housing in the autumn of their housing by the end of July.


The security deposit for shared apartments is 300 euros and for family apartments 600 euros. The security must be paid under the terms stated in the housing offer. A receipt of the paid security deposit must be presented before the tenancy agreement is signed.

Tenancy agreement

The tenancy agreement is usually signed for a period valid until further notice. It is signed in our office before moving to the apartment. A copy of the document indicating your study position or of the admission notice of the school must be delivered in conjunction with the signing of the tenancy agreement. The key to the apartment is given to you in the same conjunction.


Pets can only be kept in the family apartments (not in shared apartments).

Change of housing

Housing can be changed for a justified reason. We charge a change fee of 100 euros for the change of housing.
