A certificate of your study place for your apartment application

Anyone can apply for an apartment of Soihtu Housing. Primary applicants for our apartments are members of the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY), and other students after them. We verify the membership from the student register of the University of Jyväskylä. If you are about to start your studies, your information hasn’t necessarily been updated to the register so please deliver us a certificate of your admission (e.g. a screenshot from Studyinfo or a copy of your acceptance letter).

If you are a student but not a member of the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä, you need to attach a certificate of your studies to your application to prove your student status.

Soihtu Housing, or the former JYY Accommodation Services, is a producer of rental apartments owned by the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä JYY. We rent apartments primarily for students but increasingly also for others. Our apartments are primarily offered for members of JYY, and for other students after them. 

If you are exchange student of University of Jyväskylä or JAMK University of Applied Sciences, you don’t need to certificate your study place.
