Summer apartments

In the summer, AYY often has vacant apartments that can be rented to temporary residents with fixed-term contracts. In the summer, mainly anyone can become a tenant if applicants do not include an adequate number of AYY’s members eligible for housing or other students.

When are the summer apartments available

The summer housing season is 1st of May to 31st of August. Summer tenants are mostly offered fixed-term contracts of 2-4 months.

Apartments available during the summer

Usually mainly shared apartments and furnished shared apartments are available during the summer months. Studios or larger apartments are rarely available even during the summer. We make offers based on the application the summer applicant has made, but if there is nothing suitable available at all, we can also suggest something else and send you an offer for an apartment that we actually have available.

Housing rents

Housing rents do not change in any way during the summer months. Rental information is available on the Domo system.

Furnished apartments

AYY’s apartments are UNFURNISHED. This means that apartments do not include even the bed, for example. However, apartments always include fixtures and equipment, such as stoves, refrigerators, etc. Apartments in the furnished shared apartment queue are the exception and include beds, chairs and tables.

Housing applications

You can apply for summer apartments throughout the year, but the preferred move-in date should be during the next summer (not over 12 months however).

You can apply for apartments by following these instructions.

  • Register in Domo system
  • Be particularly careful when filling out your contact details! Housing offers will be sent by e-mail, so you will need an e-mail address that you actively check in order to apply for the apartment.
  • Choose the Bachelor student option
  • Choose Otaniemi as your place of study
  • Choose “I do not have Aalto University student number” and attach an informal explanation that you are applying for a summer apartment. Please include dates when you need accommodation in the explanation!
    This ensures that AYY can draft the contract for the right time period.
  • After this you can fill out applications. Remember to fill in the preferred move-in date correctly!
