Temporary accommodation for students

You should not put your requirement level too high when it comes to your first apartment. The most important thing is to confirm one and start seeking one that meets your needs when you are more familiar with the city. If the situation seems bad, temporary accommodation relieves the pressure for students who have not a permanent place to stay at the beginning of the studies. A few service providers are organizing short term housing at Jyväskylä.

Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä | Gasthaus Laajis

JAMKO supports the temporary accommodation provided by the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY). JYY organises temporary accommodation in fall 2015 for the students of the University of Jyväskylä and JAMK UAS.
