Tenants Activity

In Soihtu’s housing locations, tenants can influence housing and the development of the community in many ways. You can participate in tenants activity in the official Tenants’ meetings, Tenants’ committee or in the more informal Village Meetings and Village Team.

Tenants activity is a privilege for all tenants and important for the well-being of the community. Through tenants activity, tenants have a possibility to influence things that are important for them – supervise the tenants’ interests, develop the housing location to look like the way they want them to look like and organize communal activities for the tenants. 

Tenants’ committees are chosen in annual tenant’s meetings and all tenants who have turned 18 years are welcome to join (1 person per apartment). Tenants’ activity in rental buildings has also been defined in the law in which for example the tasks of a tenants’ committee are listed.

Next Village Meeting:

Time: 18th of April 2022 at 5 pm – CANCELLED! We’ll continue planning in Village Team WA group.

Place: Rentukka’s Club Room

The Village Meetings for the tenants of Kortepohja Student Village are great opportunities to discuss current housing issues and upcoming events, as well as to get to know the neighbors. In the spring’s last Village Meeting we will plan for Rentukka’s 50th birthday event!

Join the Village Team!

Register as a volunteer or discuss about the topic in Kortepohja’s own Discord!

We will create a joint discussion group of volunteer tenants to plan events and other fun for the tenants of the Student Village.

No commitments, no unwanted tasks – the activity is completely voluntary and requires only genuine interest in your own housing community.⁠

How can I join the tenants’ committee? 

  • Participate in the annual tenants’ meeting that is called together by the tenants’ committee of your own housing location. 
  • You can join in the middle of a year by contacting the tenants’ committee of your housing location. 
  • In case there isn’t an active tenants’ committee in your housing location, you can establish one by calling together a tenants’ meeting. Ask further information from Soihtu’s Community manager.
