Who can apply?

Anyone can apply for an apartment of Soihtu Housing. Primary applicants for our apartments are members of the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY), and other students after them. We pay special attention to those students who have a child/children or are expecting.

Apartments coming available in the beginning of August are reserved for new students each year and members of the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY) are primary applicants.

We verify the membership from the student register of the University of Jyväskylä. If you are about to start your studies, your information hasn’t necessarily been updated to the register so please deliver us a certificate of your admission (e.g. a screenshot from Studyinfo or a copy of your acceptance letter). 

When applying for the newest buildings and for the buildings that have been renovated recently it is good to take into account that especially studios are popular among our applicants.

Credit status of every applicant is checked. However, poor credit history isn’t automatically a hindrance to getting an apartment, but their effect is considered case-specifically. If you have previous rental debt for Soihtu/JYY, please contact our rent secretaries.

For physically impaired, there are both studios and two-room apartments available. Further information from our customer service.
