Customer-oriented service company

Our housing services stand out from the other lessors thanks to the affordable locations and the services particularly directed to students. Furthermore, we do not require a large deposit or advance rent for our apartments.

The rent includes a broadband connection. We also offer plenty of sauna turns, good communal facilities, maintenance services, etc.

Active and like-minded students as neighbours are also an asset of student housing.
The foundation was founded and is administered by the student unions in Lappeenranta in cooperation with the City of Lappeenranta and the Lappeenranta Evangelical-Lutheran Parish Union.

LOAS apartments

LOAS apartments are built for young people who are learning to live on their own and who study in Lappeenranta. In our selection of apartments, there is a large variety of choices for different stages in a student’s life. A room of one’s own in a two- or three-room apartment shared with like-minded students, a studio apartment for those who need the privacy for example at the final stages of studies, or a two-room apartment for a family. Our apartments can be applied by all students studying in Lappeenranta either in basic or in postgraduate studies or in supplementary education. Studying is a common denominator for our tenants.
