Housing during the Summer School in Human Sciences

Accommodation during Summer School

Summer School participants will be accommodated in the apartments of Kortepohja Student Village at about 2.5 kilometres / 1.5 miles from the University. They will have a furnished study-bedroom (with a shared kitchenette and bathroom) which also include a blanket, pillow and bed linen. Some of the apartments may also include basic kitchenware.

Choosing Kortepohja Student Village as your accommodation is budget-friendly, but requires considerably more self-containment than staying in a hotel. For a good description of the accommodation level in Kortepohja, see the summer school group accommodation info at their webpage www.kortepohja.fi/en/tenant/tenancy-guides/instructions/group-accommodation/
