Laundry Room, washing machines and Drying Room

All residential locations have their own laundry room, an area for drying laundry, and modern washers and dryers. The use of laundry rooms is free of charge. The laundry room is open every day from 7 am to 10 pm.

You can book the washing turn from the electronic reservation system. Washing machines must not be used without a reservation! To book laundry turns, you must register in the system. To new international students we will send the link to the washing machine reservation system with the Rent invoice.

In the new system, the resident can have 5 active reservations. You can always book 7 days forward from the time of the reservation.

Remember to allocate enough time for doing laundry. The washing machine estimates the duration of the program based on the weight of the laundry, so the program duration may be longer for heavier loads.

You can reserve your wash time beforehand at any time when the laundry room is open. If you do not need the time you have reserved, please cancel it. The front door of the laundry room must be kept locked to keep out outsiders. The housing association does not reimburse for clothes that go missing from the laundry room. Use all machines according to instructions and make a fault report of any possible defects as soon as you notice that a machine does not work, or it malfunctions.

Parking Spaces and Spaces with Car Heaters

There are car heating posts in the parking areas of residential locations. Parking spaces in Kuntokuja 2 and Katiskaniementie 6 are 10€/month. Other locations’ parking spaces are 10-15€/month.

Parking spaces can be rented by sending an email to Heating post key can be collected from Kuopas’ office.

The minimum time for parking space reservation is one full calendar month. The reservation can be started in the middle of the month, but it can then be canceled by the end of the next month at the earliest.

The heating posts work with a timed clock or with so-called termotakt system. They turn on when the temperature is below zero and supply power current periodically depending on the air temperature. Because of this, power may not come from the post exactly when you connect the plug to your car. The use of interior space heaters in cars is prohibited.
The heating posts can only be used for the car engine heaters. Unfortunately you can’t charge electric vehicles from the heating posts.

Do not park in reserved spaces. Parking is monitored by the City of Kuopio. Please don’t leave your car in any other places in the yard than a parking slot. You may get ticketed if the car is in a wrong place. If you do not use your car, please find a place for it where it is not in the way of snow-clearing in winter, our maintenance service can help you with this. If you do not want to move your car, take care of the snow-free surroundings of your parking space. This allows everyone to park their car in their own parking space.

When you do not need the parking space anymore, return the heating box key to Kuopas’ office in a plastic bag or envelope with your name and address. Parking space will then be canceled at the end of that month in which the key is returned.

You can find a car slot map in the building guide.
