The housing situation in South-East Finland is good, compared to the situation in the Helsinki region or other similar European metropolises.
The rental level is relatively low, and finding affordable accommodation is quite easy.
Degree students arrange housing themselves before their arrival in Finland. Unfortunately, Xamk cannot offer accommodation for students. Please, look for more information from new students website.
