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. These furnished rooms are also a good choice for students who live in another city but have lectures in Jyväskylä only once or twice a week.

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.

Soihtu’s furnished shared apartments are reserved for the exchange students of JUY during the academic year. Since JYU is not receiving exchange students in the autumn semester 2020, these apartments are available for anyone for short-term rental periods (1 – 5 months) between 1.8. and 31.12.2020. If you want to apply for a furnished room for few months, just fill in an apartment application (choose buildings MNP or RS) . Remember to mention that you are applying for a furnished room. This way the application will be directed correctly.
