Changes to AYY's resident selection will enter into force gradually as of 1 September 2023
The gradual change will enter into force when the new Act on Interest Subsidy for Rental Housing Loans enters into force on 1 Sept 2023. In the Act, a resident selection task is considered a public administrative task and includes a provision on official liability, which obliges the student union to implement resident selection in a more precise manner as required by legislation.
Changes to housing application system
System changes are still under way and the new resident selection model will be fully implemented during the autumn. Our aim is to transfer current applications directly to the reformed system. However, we ask all applicants to be prepared to resubmit their applications.
As the first change, we will change the queuing policy to comply with official guidelines, according to which the tenant selection criteria for ARA housing include the need for housing, income, and wealth. Resident selection is based on these resident selection criteria as well as on a comparison between the applicants. As a result, the current scoring and queuing system will be discontinued from 1 Sept 2023, after which you can no longer see your queuing status in Domo.
Please note that we are unable to respond to separate inquiries regarding the application, nor provide an estimate for the time or probability of a housing offer. Housing offers are submitted via email, which is why you need to keep your contact information up to date on Domo and check your email on a regular basis. If you have anything to specify for your housing application, you can submit additional information appendices via Domo.
We will provide more information soon as the system changes progress and the housing regulations and resident selection guidelines will be fully implemented.
