The state supports the construction of TYS student housing. TYS’s tenant selection is regulated by the guidelines of The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA) and TYS’s rules.
Tenants are selected in accordance with the Equality Act and no one is discriminated on the basis of age, origin, nationality, language, religion, belief, opinion, political activity, trade union activities, family relationships, health status, disability, sexual orientation or any other personal reason.
Tenant selection is based on an assessment of the urgency of applicant’s need for housing. In the tenant selection, an income and wealth comparison is followed, in which case low-income applicants are given priority. The priority of applicants in a similar situation is determined by the application submission date. In August and September, priority will be given to new students moving in from out of Turku.
Editing the application does not change the original submission date of the application.
