Student housing for exchange students
TAMK does not have on-campus dormitories. Housing for students in Tampere is administrated by the Tampere Student Housing Foundation (TOAS). TOAS offers furnished rooms for incoming exchange students at a student-friendly price including free internet and other fairly priced services (car sharing, car park, TOAS gyms). TOAS tenancy agreements are always fixed-term* (from August to December or/and January to May).
The application period for TOAS apartments starts in May for autumn semester and around mid-October for spring semester. You should apply before you get the official Letter of Acceptance from TAMK.
POAS (Pirkan opiskelija-asunnot) offers some furnished apartments (room in a shared apartment) for exchange students. Tenancy agreements in the furnished apartments are fixed-term.
Opiskelijan Tampere facilitates temporary short-term housing for students who have not found an apartment before arriving in Tampere or whose rental agreement starts later than they arrive. For more information, please see Temporary accommodation for exchange students.
