Application time for building D begins in May
Have you already heard that building D in the Kortepohja Student Village will be fully renovated by August? The renovation of building D, one of the Kortepohja Student Village’s ”Tower Blocks”, located near Rentukka, will be finished in the summer of 2021. The size of the studios varies from 19,5 to 26,5 square meters. The new apartments will meet the needs of today’s student housing and the old layouts will be history. Every apartment will have a connection for a dishwasher and a washing machine.
There will be 18 apartments on the floors 1-8. In addition, five more apartments will be on the ground floor, so all together, the new building D will have 149 apartments.
Living in Kortepohja is so easy. Along with the basic services, such as Internet, water and electricity, your rental in Kortepohja grants you access to Rentukka’s gym and learning spaces in the middle of the Village. You can also use the laundry rooms and saunas free of charge. In addition, Soihtu offers a basic home insurance for those tenants who are members of JYY.
