We are responsible for the mobility agreements and cooperation with our partner universities abroad. The International Office administers and coordinates several international programmes and projects. We administer grants mostly for outgoing students and staff.

Housing services

The housing situation in Turku is relatively good and student appartments are of easy walking, cycling or a bus ride distance from the campus.

It is your responsibility to arrange accommodation for yourself. University of Turku cannot unfortunately guarantee or arrange housing for students and therefore we recommend that you apply housing well in advance, observing the deadlines set by individual housing providers.

One of these is the former main library, located on the University Hill, and after the reform it will be renamed as Feeniks Library.
