I was very lucky because I didn't have to look for an accolodation myself. Moreover, most of the exchange students going to my school were living there: it was a means to meet people! I had the opportunity to share an appartment with 2 students and it was a great experience. The location of the accomodation was quite good: it took 5 minutes by train to go to the centre of the city.

Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
In fact it is not really a campus. It is a building that belongs to the association of the school (KY). In that building there are only apartments for 3 people which is very useful to find friends and to know quickly people from other countries. So I would make the same choice, and you know, when you pay 120 euros per month, you are very happy to spare to travel!!

Concerning the accomodation, KY, the association of the school give you the choice between 3 appartments between 120 and 400 euros. People in appartments at 400 euros are lucky because it is so beautiful and comfortable there, but so unlucky to have boring days because they are alone and it is so difficult to get friends there. At last I am very happy concerning my choice to live in "Ida", even if I have to take the bus during 30mn to go to school and to the city.

The appartment itself is not very nice, in the first days everybody was depressed but once you get used to it you'll have a great time in pasila. More info about the specific housing possibilities good have been given to the students on forehand.

The student housing association provided very large, clean, well equipped apartments for reasonable prices. Also they were very flexible on arrival/departure times so if you had to stay longer or leave early it was possible to cancel your contract without penalty

Housing is not provided by the university but rather my the student housing organization. In Mikkeli where i studied, this was provided by MOAS (http://www.moas.fi)

They offer many possibilities and less or more money. You can also live in a KY students appartment, which is very cheap and nice. However, the scholl organizes the housing for each exchange student, which is very good.
