Current apartment situation
Soihtu has three housing locations in Jyväskylä: Kortepohja Student Village, Soihtu Korttelikylä and Soihtu Vehkakuja. All apartments of September have now been offered to applicants.
We offer apartments that are available later in autumn to those who have sent an apartment application. Apartments and rooms will be available all year round. Please note that there is no separate housing queue, the student apartments are offered based on the applicant’s needs.
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. You can also edit or delete your application on the applicant’s page. Please remember to update your application correctly if there are any changes to your information (e.g. e-mail or address changes).
Most of our apartments are unfurnished. Soihtu has furnished apartments in Kortepohja Student Village, but during the academic year, we reserve them for the exchange students of the University of Jyväskylä and JAMK University of Applied Sciences. JYU and JAMK have reserved a limited number of apartments for their exchange students. Soihtu can only guarantee a furnished student apartment for those exchange students, whose accommodation has been agreed with JYU or JAMK. All furnished apartments have been offered for the autumn semester 2023.
