You can apply for a LOAS student apartment directly online and applications are accepted all year round. One application at a time is valid for three months, but you should submit an application as soon as a study place has been confirmed. LOAS’ apartments are intended for students who study in Lappeenranta. Check your own application status using the queue query!
Familiarise with LOAS’ buildings, residential areas, student apartments and their floor plans. You can apply for different properties according to different criteria and needs. Consider in advance what you hope for from an apartment: furnished or unfurnished, city centre or near the school?
The rent of LOAS’ student apartments is based on the size of the apartment, form of apartment and furniture. The two-bedroom apartments have the most affordable rent and the most expensive rent is for the studios. The rent of all apartments always includes a fast broadband internet connection. Familiarise with the housing support systems in advance: You can find detailed information on housing support on Kela’s website.
Our apartments are designed in principle for the needs of students, so they are practical, easy to maintain, diverse and yes: affordable. There are lots of different apartments around Lappeenranta, either furnished or unfurnished. Studios have the highest demand and they have the longest queues. If it important for you to be offered an apartment immediately after by the start of your studies, apply for shared apartments too – you can apply for a studio later on.
Are you looking for a peaceful idyll or the liveliness of the city? All of LOAS’ apartments are situated within reach of excellent transport connections or close to educational institutes and schools. Within the vicinity of the residential areas, you can find most basic services at walking distance or with good transport connections: grocery shops, pharmacy, culture services and hiking opportunities.
During the summer, most students go elsewhere so we have lots of different empty apartments. We rent furnished apartments to companies and people coming to Lappeenranta to work or study for the summer. The shortest possible rental period is one week.
