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. Empty your refridgerator and leave the refridgerator door open. The cleaning is checked after moving out.

Return your possible starting package to the student unions. TYS does not accept or return the packages. You can find more information about the packages here:

Don´t leave anything useful to the common kitchen or other common areas, because the kitchens will be emptied and everything will be thrown away before next term.


The key 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 May 2024, the key has to be returned latest on the 3rd of June 2024 at 12:00 (mid-day).

You can return the key:

  • Key return hatch outside of TYS Housing Office on the left. From white mail box on the right, you can find key return envelopes.

    TYS Housing Office (address: Inspehtorinkatu 12 A, key return hatch outside of the housing office). You can return the keys to the hatch any time during the day, even outside of the office hours. Please take a key return envelope from the white mailbox next to the key return hatch, write your name and your apartment address to the envelope, seal the envelope ans drop your key to the hatch. You can also ask your friend/tutor to return the key. 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.


  • 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)

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.
