Exchange Student Housing Offer and Payments

Congratulations, only a few steps before moving in

Housing offer

The housing offers are sent online after TYS has received your application and checked that you have valid study certificate.  You will receive an email notification when the offer has arrived to your Tenant page.

Please also note that TYS can’t accommodate all exchange students arriving to Turku, TYS has 360 rooms for exchange students. The accommodation option you have chosen to the application form is only considered as a preferation and can not guaranteed. Only one housing offer can be send to each exchange student as the rooms are booked very quickly. If we can’t offer you the housing option you prefer, we automatically offer you the other option.

The accepted housing offer is binding, so please check the dates and other details before accepting a housing offer.

Payment information on the Tenant Pages

All invoices can be found from your personal Tenant Pages. Also the received payments are updated under your personal Tenant Pages after we have received he money, but with a few days delay. Unfortunately we can’t send confirmation emails after each payment arrives, but also for this reason all payments are shown under Tenant Pages.

Admission fee

There will be an admission fee of 60 € for all new contracts. This invoice will be sent to you separately and is a one time payment.

Rent

Rent is paid monthly and the due date for paying it is always the 6th of each month. You will receive the rent invoice for your whole stay by email some time after you have accepted the offer. If you are arriving in January, you will most likely receive the rent invoices in December. Please use the payment details provided in the invoice. If wished you can also pay the rent for full semester at once.

The rent depends on the housing location, apartment, etc. and the exact amount is informed in the housing offer (please check it before accepting the offer). The minimum time of staying is one semester and the rent is also paid for that time, regardless of the actual date of moving in or out.

Furniture fee

All exchange students’ apartment are furnished with basic furniture (standard size single bed (80*200 cm) with mattress, desk, chair, lamp, bookshelves and wardrobe.) and for this reason your rent invoice will show the monthly furniture fee of 15 € per person. The rents informed in this website include this furniture fee.

All invoices can be found from your personal Tenant Pages. Also the received payments are updated under your personal Tenant Pages after we have received he money, but with a few days delay. Unfortunately we can’t send confirmation emails after each payment arrives, but also for this reason all payments are shown under Tenant Pages.
