Housing services

The Helsinki Metropolitan area is a fun place to live in, but finding suitable accommodation in the capital region can be challenging.

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.
