Welcome home, student!

KOAS student housing locations are designed with the students' needs in mind. With us, you can apply for a shared flat (2 and 3 people in a flat) alone or with a group of friends, a studio flat or a family flat. If your life situation changes along the way, no worries! You can always apply for a different kind of accommodation later.

Make sure to apply for a flat as soon as you have accepted a place for studying in Jyväskylä!

Our rent is all-inclusive:

  • Water, renewable electricity and heating
  • Fast data connection and cable TV
  • The use of a laundry room
  • Safe housing locations
  • KOAS Meeting Room for group work and studying, KOAS Bike e-bike for exploring the city and many more extra services!

In addition, many of the housing locations offer various other services and communal activities organized by the Tenant Committee.
