Exchange students

If you are a student from one of our partner universities who comes to study or complete internship at HAMK for one to two semesters, some of the HAMK campuses can arrange a student apartment for you if you notify us about your time of arrival well ahead of time. Please refer to the specific arrangements by campus for more information.

Degree students

If you are a new degree student, we recommend you to start looking for accommodation as early as possible, well before you book your flight. Student accommodation options are limited, and not all new students can be promised a student apartment.

Whether you have applied for student accommodation or private accommodation, if you are offered a lease, we highly recommend you agree to the offer. 

Please note that the apartments are usually not furnished.

In addition to student apartments, there are private accommodation providers. Private rental apartments are usually more expensive than student apartments and they do not usually include electricity, lamps or internet. This means you have to sign separate contracts with different service providers. 

At the moment the queue for student apartments is long, but make sure to make an application for student accommodation to get in the queue. While you wait for a student apartment, you may have to accept a lease in a privately owned apartment.

If you are arriving with a family, please note that there are very few student accommodation possibilities available for families. Therefore you will have to find a lease in a privately owned apartment ( is your best option for finding an apartment). All incoming students should secure accommodation before travelling to Finland, and especially if you are travelling with children, please make sure you have accommodation before booking your flight.


Select the relevant campus on the right hand side of the page and find instructions for applying for accommodation. Please note that you should only apply for accommodation on the campus (or in the town) where you will be studying. In other words, if you will study in, e.g., Valkeakoski, only apply for housing in Valkeakoski. The other locations are too far. 

HAMK only owns student apartments on the campuses of Evo, Lepaa and Mustiala, and these apartments are a realistic option only for the students studying on those campuses. These campuses are located in rural areas with no public transportation available to the other campuses.
