Emergency housing

Every autumn, AYY organises some emergency housing in cooperation with Aalto University. Emergency housing is meant for new Aalto University students who have no other housing options whatsoever. The emergency housing is located in Otaniemi.

Seeking out emergency housing

The emergency housing coordinator is no longer available for 2019.

AYY’s Emergency Housing Coordinator is responsible for organising emergency housing for Aalto students in need of short-term accommodation. In 2019, Joel Arantola acts as Emergency Housing Coordinator, and they can be reached between 5th Aug and 30th Sept.

If you have not found anywhere to stay 1–3 working days prior to your arrival, get in touch with the Emergency Housing Coordinator and the Student Union will try to find you a place in emergency housing.

You can stay in emergency housing for two weeks at most. After that, the place is given to the next person in line. If a student in emergency housing is in a very exceptional situation and there is no one queuing up for their spot, the tenancy agreement can be extended for another two weeks.

You can also get in touch with the Emergency Housing Coordinator to ask for general instructions on looking for accommodation in the capital region. Please note that AYY cannot promise emergency housing for everyone that needs it due to a limited number of housing facilities.

You can contact the Emergency Housing Coordinator by using this form.
