Exchange Students Moving out

When your lease is about to end here are few things to remember


Remember to clean the apartment/your room properly and empty all your things from cabinets, closets, kitchen etc. The cleaning is checked after moving out.


Remember to notify the post and the registry office (Digital and Population data service Agency) that you have moved out of your apartment.

Thank you for staying in TYS and all the best in the future!

Some time after moving out we’ll send you a link to the customer satisfaction questionnaire. Please fill it, as with your feedback we can improve our services.


The key/key card has to be returned latest on the mid-day of the first working day of the month when your lease ends. If your lease ends on the 31st of December 2021, the key has to be returned latest on the 3rd of January 2022 at 12:00 (mid-day).

You can return the key/key card:

  • TYS Housing Office (address: Inspehtorinkatu 12 A )
  • other option for those living in Varissuo is the office of Akseli Kiinteistöpalvelut Oy (address: Karvataskunkatu 1, entrance from the yard and a mailbox for keys on the right side on the wall) 

Entrance of Akseli Kiinteistöpalvelut Oy (address: Karvataskunkatu 1),  the mailbox for keys on the right side on the wall

the mailbox where to drop TYS keys

If you leave outside office hours you can leave the key to Housing Office’s key return hatch (on left side of the front door) in an envelope with your name and address on it (TYS will provide some key return envelopes in the lobby of your building), or you can ask your friend/tutor to return it in time. Please don’t leave the keys to your room in any case, as then the key is seen missing and you might be charged for possibly consequences. We don’t recommend sending keys via post, as there is always a risk that it’s gone missing and tenant is responsible for possible charges related to missing keys.

Welcome to study in Turku!
