Student Accommodation in Mustiala

HAMK will arrange accommodation in advance for students provided that they inform of their arrival well in advance. You will be staying in a dormitory with other Mustiala students and exchange students from all over the world.

Up till now, all foreign students and teachers have lived at Mustiala since it is the cheapest way of living here, and it is difficult to rent an apartment in this region. In Forssa, there are some hotels but the cost of living there is much higher than staying in Mustiala. Foreign students do not have to pay a security deposit for housing in Mustiala, as it is many times the case in the private market. In Mustiala, your accommodation will be in a student dormitory. The dormitory has a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Foreign students pay around €130/month (which is extremely cheap in Finland) for accommodation in a double-room. You can bring your own linen or rent linen from HAMK Mustiala (extra charge €10/set).
