Living at TOASWe provide affordable homes for an active student lifestyle.

Right of occupancy

The right of occupancy at TOAS requires full-time studies at higher educational units in Tampere (or nearby municipality). The studies must be full-time and lead to a degree. The minimum requirement is 20 ECTS credits in a calendar year (January-December). We review the right of occupancy regularly and those who have got the revision form must provide an academic transcript of their studies. After graduation the right of occupancy continues in the current apartment for one year.

Free Internet

A free of charge Internet connection of 200 Mbit/s (actual range of variation in brackets 80-200 Mbit/s) is available for all TOAS tenants. The network is intended for studying, communication and leisure use and offers a broadband connection comparable to commercial connections. Using the internet is free of charge but requires a registration to the service provider Telia. You can also leave a contact request and they will call you and open the internet connection. When moving out, make sure you cancel the internet connection by calling to the same number.

Most TOAS locations have an Ethernet connection, so you only need a network cable to use the connection. You will need your own network cable.

In some locations, the broadband connection requires a cable modem *. With the change in internet speed, aparments may have old VDSL modems. A new free cable modem must be picked up from Telia, which can be connected via the TV plug. Read more about the Internet connection at your cable modem location.
Cable modem connection instructions. When you move out, you must leave the cable modem in the apartment.

In locations where modem is needed, the Telia portal (Minun Telia) cannot be used. When doing the registration to Telia you must call their customer service: 0200 11611  (mcc/lnc)

TOAS does not provide a router for the Ethernet locations. If you wish to have WiFi, please bring your own router. Please note that each studio and family apartment has one active internet socket. In case the tenant wants to change it, it will cost 50€ (may be ordered by email to isannointi(at)

*Modem needed  in locations Vanha Domus B-E, Ankkari, Kanjoni, Veikkolat, Lukonlysti, Lukonkruuti, Leenanlinna and Kaisanpirtit. Rauhaniemi and Tuulanhovi have some apartments with cable modem connection, others with VDSL connection.

Problems with the Internet?

General problems with the connection and fault reports, local network charge or mobile call charge.

Tenants are responsible for their keys, also for their children’s keys and spare keys. Keys must be stored safely, e.g. name and address may not appear together with the keys. In case keys are lost during tenancy, the tenant must inform TOAS immediately. TOAS has the right to charge the tenant for lost keys and for changing the locks.

Forgot Your Key?

During the housing office’s opening hours, you can borrow a spare key free of charge. At other times, call the maintenance company’s 24-hour service. The maintenance company charges a fee for opening the door according to its valid price list. Be prepared to prove your identity! The maintenance company’s contact information can be found close to the entrance of your building and also on our website in the location’s page.
