New housing secretary

Susanna Rantakylä will be our new housing secretary from August 1st onwards.

Summer 2019's application period has ended

Summer's application period for apartments lasted from June 15th to July 15th. During the same application period the Foundation's residents, whose lease expires between 9/2019-12 / 2019 were able to apply for an extension to their residence. The Housing board of Savolainen osakunta has evaluated the applications and results have been send to applicants. More apartments wil become available every month and they will be offered to applicants according to the queue.


General information

Savolaisten Ylioppilaiden Säätiö (Foundation of Savonian University Students), established by former members of Savolainen osakunta, has student apartments. Most of the apartments are located in Antti Korpin tie, Koskela. The foundation also has some apartments in Rautalammintie, Vallila and Maapadontie, Patola. Those who move alone may apply for a room in a shared apartment or for a studio. Couples/friends may apply for two-room apartment. Most of the foundation’s tenants live in a shared apartment.

The foundation’s apartments are mainly for the University of Helsinki students. Students of other universities (or universities of applied sciences) are also able to apply. An applicant must be a member of the Savolainen osakunta either when applying or when receiving the apartment, at latest.


The official times to apply for apartments are in 15.6.–15.7. (Summer’s application period) and 1.–28.2. (Winter’s application period). Applying is possible outside the official application periods, too. Applications that are received during other times than application periods are put on the end of the queue. The queue and applications in it will be removed when the next official application period begins.

Unlike HOAS, Savo University Students’ Foundation is not bound to offer apartments for all applicants. We select the applicants that are considered to be most sufficient.

How to apply

We are currently upgrading our applying system. Please fill in this form to apply for apartment and bring it to the office during reception times (see below) or send it via post mail. Applications received outside the official application periods will be added to current queue for apartments.

Following attachements must be included in the application:

  • Certificate of attendance at the university
  • Transcription of completed studies. From freshmen: certificate of completed studies in high school
  • Tax assesment decision ('verotustodistus')
More information concerning tax assessment decision can be found from tax authority's website.
