Housing in Finland

See all Online Open Days in Finland

In Finland, students can choose to live in different types of accommodation: shared apartments, studio apartments, group apartments, and family apartments are all viable options. Wherever you live, you will find all required appliances and utilities, so no need to worry about bringing your microwave from home or installing internet once you arrive!

The monthly rent for student accommodation in Finland varies, so you will have to plan around €160 to €380 for a single room in a shared flat. Rent is higher for those who wish to live in a single apartment or a family flat, as you are not sharing with others.

As soon as you have your acceptance letter from a university in Finland, you should start applying for student housing. In the larger cities it may take you several weeks or even months before you find the right accommodation.
