Jyväskylä is among the most popular student cities in Finland, so it may take a while to find an apartment at the beginning of your studies.
JAMK University of Applied Sciences and the University of Jyväskylä students acquire their apartments through the Central Finland Student Housing Foundation KOAS or from the free housing market. In addition, the University of Jyväskylä Student Union also has low-rent student housing in the Kortepohja student village.
KOAS offers ca. 3900 apartments all around the Jyväskylä town area. The apartment buildings are conveniently located in the suburbs of Jyväskylä and offer an excellent opportunity to integrate with people outside the University. International students are usually placed in the furnished apartments in Roninmäki, Myllyjärvi and Keltinmäki. Laundry rooms, saunas and store rooms, as well as hobby rooms, are available in the buildings.
All KOAS apartments have an Internet connection (free of charge). The price for a furnished single study-bedroom with a shared kitchen and bathroom varies from € 185 to € 230 per month. A refundable deposit of € 250 must be paid before arrival. The sum will be refunded if no damage or loss is detected in the apartment during the departure check-up.
