Instructions for applying

Fill in the apartment application carefully so that we can look for an apartment that meets your wishes as well as possible. In addition to personal details and your study info, the apartment size and the rent that you would like and when you need an apartment are important information.

Please also make sure that you fill in your personal details on the application only once.

We will send you an apartment offer when an apartment that meets your wishes is becoming available. In general, applicants get apartments faster in the spring and summer than in the autumn when new students are starting their studies, and studio apartments are in biggest demand. The situation changes all the time, so you can ask our customer service about the current situation.

Edit your application

If you want to edit your application, register to Soihtu’s applicant’s page with your online banking credentials. If you don’t have online banking credentials, you can visit our customer service to get the user credentials. Take a picture ID that is valid with you. After creating a username and a password, you can, among other things, add and delete buildings on your application and change other wishes regarding the apartment. Please note that filling in an application doesn’t automatically create you user identification to the applicant’s page.

Please note that if you have originally applied for an apartment without a Finnish ID number, you will have to inform us your Finnish ID number to use our online services without a visit to our office.

The apartment application is valid for three months at a time. A week before it expires, you will receive an email reminding that the application is expiring. You can renew the application on the applicant’s page. Please inform us in case you want to delete your apartment application.

Soihtu’s housing and rental services require processing of personal data. Personal data is used for instance to manage the customer relationship. We especially take notice to the protection of a customer’s privacy and personal data, and we follow a good manner of data processing.
