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 (in Pirkanmaa). The studies must be full-time and lead to a degree. The minimum requirement is 20 ECTS credits in a calendar year. 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 available for all TOAS tenants.

In most locations, the connection is a 100/100 Mbit/s* Ethernet.

Remember to bring your own network cable. In some locations the connection is VDSL2, for which a WiFi modem can be found in the apartment. The locations with VDSL2 connection are 200 (blocks B–E), 205, 260, 460, 495, 496, 510, 520, 610, 730.

60 Years of Student Life

We know that no two students are alike: they differ in life situation, habits, hobbies and needs. We do your best to provide quality student housing for each.

We value your privacy, but also provide common areas for cooking, relaxing and socialising. Our rent level is affordable, about 25% lower than in the private market.

Beware, you might even find a lifelong friend or a spouse!

Before you jump into student life, we recommend you get to know our rules and policies.

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.
