How to apply for an apartment at Koas

When you have a place to study or have received confirmation from your school about a place to study, you can apply for an apartment. It is easy with these steps:

  1. To apply for an apartment, you must be enrolled in an educational institution. Share a link about your studies in the additional information section of the application. You can find the link in the Studyinfo (Opintopolku), under Share study information. Set a link validity period of at least 5 days. If you have just received a study place, a certificate is not required at this stage.
  2. Fill in an application online. Get to know the Koas housing locations first. Shared apartment, studio and family apartment applications are made separately. You can apply for a family apartment alone or with your spouse. You can also apply for a shared apartment with a friend. It is wise to accept the shared apartment offered because you can simultaneously keep an application valid for other type of apartment.
  3. Accept the apartment offer and sign the rental agreement. First, read the apartment offer carefully. The draft rental agreement is accepted by electronic identification according to the instructions you received by email.
  4. Collect the keys from Koas Keybox. The keys to your new home are picked up from the Koas Keybox on the first weekday of the month of the beginning of the tenancy starting at 12 noon. Remember to also get home insurance before moving.
