Student services

Student well-being services aim to provide adequate support and means for promoting and managing well-being. Student well-being services are available to students throughout the study period.

Counselling psychologists and well-being advisors offer support in challenges of personal life and studies through individual appointments, education and small group activities.

Housing services

  • There is a lot of competition in affordable housing, so it is important to start searching for a room many months prior to arrival. Look into different options and make sure that you have reserved accommodation before you arrive.
  • Metropolia does not have housing services to offer. Thus it is the student's responsibility to find an accommodation for the period of their studies.
