We take good care of our apartments and tenants. Student apartments have various options at different prices to meet the students’ different needs.

Kuopas’ housing stock is constructed with state subsidies (ARA apartments). In other words, the income must cover all maintenance, capital and administrative costs of the properties, i.e. income and expenses must be equal. This means that Kuopas does not make a profit. The rent is determined by the authorities. This way you can live affordably in Kuopas!

All rents already include the Internet connection, laundry and water. In most of our locations the electricity payments are fixed, so you only pay €8/month (shared room) – €18/month (three room apartment) for electricity.

In this section you’ll find more information of the apartment types. Note that certain apartment types may only be available at certain locations.

The rent is valid to the end of passing year. If there will be a change in the rent, it will announced at least two months before. Usually the rents will be raised at the beginning of January. If you don’t receive new instructions on how to pay the rent, you can use the same payment information as last year. The reference number and the bank account is the same.
