Furnished apartment

A furnished room in a shared apartment is an easy option for an exchange student. This communal housing type is great opportunity for an exchange student who is moving to a new city since it is an easy way to get to know new people. For those who want privacy, we have some studio apartments available (only for the exchange students of University of Jyväskylä).

Living in Kortepohja Student Village is easy because water, electricity, district heating and 1GB Funet broadband connection are always included in the rent. In addition, it is free to use the laundry rooms and common sauna turns are available every day. Rentukka building that is in the middle of the Student Village is praised by our tenants – many people choose our apartment because the gym and studying spaces in Rentukka are in free use of our tenants. The student-priced lunch is served also after lectures so if you aren’t interested in cooking at home, you can stop by Rentukka to eat!

The tenancy agreement is made for whole months, so the agreement begins on the first day of a month and ends on the last day of a month. The tenancy agreement can be valid for a fixed term (academic year or semester) in a furnished room / studio.
