Information for Tutors

A great number of new exchange students arrive to Turku and TYS apartments each semester. Here’s some information what tutors should note about exchange students arriving and living in TYS apartments.

Before the arrival:

  • Make sure that your exchange student is accommodating in TYS apartments and they have accepted the housing offer
  • TYS does not require deposit payment for new contracts
  • Ask the address of the apartment and possible room number/letter

Picking up the key:

  • Agree with your exchange student are they picking up the key themselves or are you picking it up for them.
  • Send an email to office@tys.fi an make an appointment to pick up the key or keys.
  • Please note that keys are only available within TYS Office opening hours. Tell in your email who´s keys you are picking up. Please inform your name and phone number in the email, so that we can contact you if any problems occur. Wait for a confirmation message.

Key pick up:

  • Please note that key can be picked up also later, if your exchange student is arriving later. There will be long queues at the housing office during the first days of the month, please prepare to wait.
  • If your exchange student asks you to visit the apartment before their arrival, please consider that it’s someone’s home. Specially in shared apartments, there might be tenants in other rooms already living in the apartment.
