Housing
Type of housing: On campus

Most of the foreigner students are putted to the campus quite far from the center - Mukkula, so U have to buy the monthly bus ticket and its quite expensive, and u cannot come back home at night.But the place is nice, as all the availible campuses in the town. The rent is almost the same everywhere, if u ll add the price 4 the buses to the Mukkula campus.
