3.8/5
Housing
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
Living on campus was a great way to get to know other students, especially those from the international program. Our location made it easy to access the university for class and other resources like e-mail and the library.

The buildings are old, so sometimes things fon't wrk like they should, and they are really ugly, but it's no big deal. The part we will remember fondly is the people, not the building.

Try to get a housing next to university, there are saunas. And there are mainly exchange students : the best way to do parties and to make friends. You can also get a really fast internet conexion for 25Ç a year. This is great to stay in contact with your relatives. They also provide you all the necessary to cook.

It was a very nice flat which a shared with other 3 girls. My room was clean and fresh and light. The building was very calm comparing to the others, so I didn't have any problems with noise when I had to study.

The buildings were well-located and included a sauna and laundry room. There was also a large gathering room (one room for four 8-floor buildings) with a TV and a kitchen. The only thing lacking was a small gathering room in each building--there were often people gathered on the stairs to chat, and that was rather uncomfortable and impersonal.

The exchange programme from Oulu found an accommodation for me and sent me all the papers a month before my departure. So I didn't worry about it. Prices are low, because there are a lot of government's helps for students. The accomodation was small but clean and comfortable. However, it was a little far from the campus, but I took the bus or a bicycle to go to university.
