When your lease starts on the first day of the month, you can pick up the key earliest on the first working day of that month after midday (according to the Finnish rental law and the previous tenant has time until this to return the key) from the Housing Office (address: Yo-kylä 12A). The key is available only during office hours, not on evenings, weekends or public holidays.
In December the housing office is open
- Mon-We 10am to 4pm, Thu 9am to 5pm and Fri 10am to 3pm. On the first weekday of the month, the office is open from 9 am to 5 pm.
Please note the exceptions in office hours during the Holiday season!
- Epiphany 6th January, the office will be closed.
If you are arriving later than in the beginning of the month then you can pick up the key after your arrival (during office hours). If you are arriving outside office hours, you can ask your student tutor from your arrival university to pick up the key in advance for you (if the key is already available). Please contact your arrival university to find out who’s going to be your tutor and the tutor will contact TYS for possible early key request (remember to tell your tutor your apartment’s address).
Please also note that the key has to be activated before it can be used. The activation can be done January 4th 12 am at the earliest. You can find instructions for activation in the key envelope.
Please note that the time when you pick up the key does not affect on the rent, the rent is paid for the full semester.
