Housing for LUT students

Scroll this

Students who start their studies in programmes on the Lappeenranta campus can apply for student accommodation directly from the Lappeenranta Student Housing Foundation LOAS. Students who start their studies in LUT programmes on the Lahti campus can apply for student accommodation through Lahden Talot. Incoming students apply for accommodation after their admission to LUT.

The accommodation in both Lappeenranta and Lahti is pretty similar. There are three types of apartments: studios, shared apartments and family apartments. The family apartments can be one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartments.

Shared facilities include a laundry room, storage space and a sauna

All of the student buildings have shared facilities, such as a laundry room equipped with washing machines, dryers and an iron. The student buildings also contain storage space for each tenant, bike shelters and in some cases club rooms for hanging out.

Most of the buildings also contain a sauna that can be used free of charge. The saunas are heated once a week for collective use free of charge, and men and women go separately. Tenants can also reserve a sauna for personal use once a week; this costs a couple of euros each time.

A shared apartment is the most typical accommodation

The most typical type of accommodation, especially for new students, is an apartment shared by two to three students. The rent for these rooms varies between €240 and €420. Each student has a room of his/her own with a lockable door and a shared kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen has a refrigerator, cupboards, a sink, and a stove. Bathrooms are fitted with a shower, a sink and a toilet.

You can also apply for a fully furnished room with a bed, a large desk, a desk lamp, a chair, a bookshelf, a wardrobe and a kitchen table with chairs. However, kitchen utensils, mattresses and curtains are not provided.

The apartments are not mixed – male and female students can live in the same apartment on request only. If you wish to share the apartment with your friend(s), you should submit your housing applications at the same time. Pets are allowed in the apartments as long as they do not disturb the neighbours.

What if you don’t get an apartment in time before studies begin?

In case you have applied for LOAS housing at Lappeenranta Campus but do not have housing starting from the beginning of your studies you can apply for temporary housing. Temporary housing is organised by LOAS and the Student Union LTKY. The students in temporary housing are living in LOAS common rooms on mattresses. Remember to apply for accommodation straight after you receive admission decision from LUT!
