- full-time students of post-comprehensive school educational institutes in Turku
- also students of upper secondary schools and vocational institutes
After graduation, students are able to continue their tenancy for up to one year, upon a separate agreement. Find out more about our housing locations.
TYS also offers youth apartments, which can be applied for by 18–29-year-old young adults living in Turku (not students). Fixed-term contracts of a maximum of five years will be made for these apartments. Youth apartments are available at two different housing locations, Ironside and Kiertotähti.
The apartment application form is only available online. For couples, it is enough if just one partner is a full-time student in Turku. However, both must fill in their information in the application form. The information of all children that may move in with the tenants must also be entered into the form.
Only one person is allowed to live in an apartment that is less than 34 square meters in size or in a room in a shared apartment. Pets are welcome to our apartments, excluding shared apartments and the apartments at Tavasti and Yo-talo A.
We have also furnished rooms in shared apartments. Furnished rooms have bed (80x200cm, no mattress), desk, chair and bookshelf.
The agreements will be made for full months, i.e. the contract will start on the first day of a month and end on the last day of the month. The rental agreement is either valid until further notice or a fixed-term agreement. Read more on rental periods. An office fee of € 60 will be applied to agreements of less than 12 months that have been defined as fixed-term agreements in advance. Read more on the fees.
