Housing Committee

The Representative Council has approved the new Housing Regulations and it will come to effect on November 1, 2022. It has been decided that Housing Committee will be abolished and the operation will end completely on 31 December 2022. From November 2022, applications will be processed according to the new Housing Regulations. Starting from January 2023 the applications will be handled by Housing Services. Before that, AYY will transfer the processing of applications from the Housing Committee to Housing Services step by step.

The Housing Committee (ATMK) consists of three residents’ representatives and three representatives appointed by the Student Union Board. Residents’ representatives are appointed by the housing cooperative. In addition, AYY’s employee acts as the secretary of the Housing Committee. The Committee meets at least once a month during the academic terms of Aalto University.

The minutes of the meetings are public and available upon request from AYY’s Services Office. However, the committee members do not comment on unfinished matters.

Scoring of Applications
Application form to the Housing Committee

Contacting the Housing Committee

You may contact the Housing Committee, for example, if you do not meet the credit limit for the right of residence defined by AYY, or if you would like to apply for additional scores for a housing queue and your situation is not defined in the housing scoring instructions.

If you apply for additional scores or for the extension of the right of residence on medical grounds, your application cannot be processed without a medical certificate. Therefore, please submit the application only after you can attach a picture of the original medical certificate. A screenshot of Omakanta website is not considered a sufficient medical certificate.

Please apply for the postponement of the moving day well in advance. Once you have accepted the termination of your lease, we will offer your apartment to the next resident in the queue. We may offer the apartment to the next resident already two months before the expiration of a valid lease. Once a new resident has signed a contract, it begins immediately after the previous one has ended, and the date of moving can no longer be postponed. In addition to the Housing Committee, please inform AYY’s housing services if you apply for the postponement of the moving day.

Contact by form

All applications to the Housing Committee are submitted in writing using the electronic form of the committee. The form includes instructions on how to fill in the form. Please include any attachments you would like to be considered when processing your application. Please make sure the email address you entered on the form is correct, as decisions will only be sent by email to the address you have provided. 

The last meeting of the Housing Committee is in mid-December. When the agenda of the meeting is closed, the application form will be removed from the website. After this, you can contact Housing Services directly. Contact Housing also if you have questions about the Housing Committee's decision that you have received earlier.
