Welcome to Aalto University Housing Services
The Aalto University Housing Services website helps you with your questions about when, where and how to look for accommodation and housing in the Helsinki region.
The pages will present options and tips useful in obtaining accommodation. You will also find practical information about living in Finland and other useful links.
As in many other metropolitan areas in the world finding suitable and reasonably priced accommodation in the Helsinki metropolitan area (i.e. cities of Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen) can be challenging for both, incoming or visiting faculty and for incoming students.
You are therefore advised to start looking early and with wide geographic perspective. Chances of finding an apartment increase remarkably if you are willing to live outside the downtown Helsinki and the campus areas.
