Emergency Housing Coordinator to help with accommodation at the start of the semester

News Bulletin

AYY

16.08.2017

 

The start of the semester is always a challenging time, but it is especially so to those, who start it in a new country. AYY’s goal is to anticipate issues and students’ needs, which is why AYY together with Aalto University hire an Emergency Housing Coordinator on a yearly basis. The Coordinator helps Finnish and international students who are without housing at the start of the semester.

This autumn AYY’s Housing Coordinator will be Katarina Naumanen. Naumanen is a 22-year-old student in Aalto Business School whose life consists of work, studies and soccer. She moved to Helsinki a year ago, having spent a year in USA playing soccer.

“I’m a semi-professional soccer player, which is why getting a job often works on the conditions of soccer schedules,” Naumanen says. “That is why I’m happy to work on a short-term project like this.”

Naumanen applied to AYY because she was interested to peek behind the curtain of her student union. She has previously worked in the private sector, but she’s happy to get a new kind of job experience.

“As a student I’m interested in seeing all different kinds of services the student union provides to students, and also play my own part in providing and improving these services,” Naumanen says. “In my job I will be able to help with students’ everyday life first hand. It’s challenging, but I’m sure it’s going to be very interesting!”

AYY’s Emergency Housing Coordinator will help those members, who have had trouble getting accommodation for the autumn of 2017. The Coordinator helps with finding the apartment, organizes temporary accommodation and answers general questions on housing issues.

Please find the Coordinator’s contact information and phone service times here: https://ayy.fi/en/housing/apartment-seekers/emergency-housing/contact-details/

The Aalto University Student Union (AYY) is a service and advocate association for about 15 000 students of the Aalto University. AYY works as an advocate for its members, especially in matters of educational politics and social issues relating to studies.

After the lottery process, the applications for Atlantinkatu apartments have been put in order according to the scoring system and the date of the application. During this process, the applicant’s position in queue may have changed. Since AYY’s housing queues are created based on scores, the situation changes constantly.
