Remember the rent increase in March

The rent increase in 2023 will be 2.0% for the D and E buildings in the Student Village and 2.5% for other housing locations. The changes will take effect from 1 March 2023. The increase is based on higher interest and loan servicing costs as well as general maintenance costs. The rent increase does not apply to the Soihtu Vehkakuja two-bedroom apartments and Soihtu Korttelikylä apartments.

In January and February you will still pay the old rent. The rent increase will not change your reference, unless your agreement changes on 1 March 2023. If your rent is paid by someone else or you receive housing benefit, for example from Kela, remember to inform the payer of the increase. Please report any errors, missing invoices or notifications of increase to
