Furnished room

A shared apartment is a great option for an exchange student or for any new student who is moving to a new city since communal living is an easy way to get to know new people.

Living in Soihtu’s housing locations 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 Soihtu’s 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!

Each tenant has their own, lockable room and the common spaces are shared with 1-3 roommates. 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 in the furnished room. For spring semester, the tenancy agreements are made for period 1st of January – 31st of May, 2022.

Most of Soihtu’s furnished shared apartments are reserved for the exchange students of JYU during the academic year. If you are an exchange student of the University of Jyväskylä, please do not fill in an apartment application on our website. University of Jyväskylä will deliver at once the accommodation applications of exchange students to Soihtu.

Few furnished apartments are reserved for the exchange students of JAMK University of Applied Sciences during the academic year.
