Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY) together with student union JAMKO organizes temporary accommodation, which is meant for students of University of Jyväskylä or JAMK University of Applied Sciences who don’t have an apartment when their studies begin in Jyväskylä.

The temporary accommodation is arranged between 21st of August and 17th of September 2017 in Forenom Apartments in Jyväskylä. The accommodation is in shared apartments of at least two people and the price is 25€/night/person. Here you find all the necessary information concerning the temporary accommodation.

Please note that temporary accommodation has limited amount of places, and unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a place for everyone. You can book your place in temporary accommodation starting from Tuesday 15th of August.

How the process goes

 

  1. The student in need of temporary accommodation can book / enquire the availability of the accommodation via phone or email directly from JYY.
  2. If there is space the student can book a bed for him-/herself for Monday afternoon to Wednesday morning, Wednesday afternoon to Friday morning or Friday afternoon to Monday morning.  Only the student wanting to come to the temporary accommodation can book a bed for him-/herself (e.g. the student’s tutor can’t do the booking).
    1. The student can arrive to the accommodation only on Monday, Wednesday or Friday afternoon.
    2. The bookings can only be done in series mentioned above (Mon.-Wed., Wed.-Fri., Fri.-Sun.) Student can also book a bed for several series at time  if he/she knows that the need for accommodation is longer. e.g. from Monday until the next week’s Wednesday.
    3. If the student happens to find a permanent accommodation, and is no longer in need of the temporary accommodation offered to you by JYY, he/she must cancel the reservation of accommodation series booked at least one workday before the next accommodation series starts. Cancellation must be done by noon, otherwise the student will be billed for the next accommodation series.
    4. The booking made by phone or by email is binding and you are required to give your billing information when booking the accommodation.
  3. The student will pick up a room key for the accommodation, sign a contract and pay for the accommodation at JYY’s Central Office during the opening hours. The person staying at the accommodation must pick up the key him-/herself. In situations if the person is arriving in the evening after office hours the process is negotiated separately.

 

 

Booking and contact information

 

Students have to book their place at the temporary accommodation in advance, before arriving to Jyväskylä. Please contact JYY directly for booking:

  • apu@jyy.fi
  • +358 50 410 9329

 

If there is space the student can book a bed for him-/herself for Monday afternoon to Wednesday morning, Wednesday afternoon to Friday morning or Friday afternoon to Monday morning. Student can also book a bed for several series at time  if he/she knows that the need for accommodation is longer. e.g. from Monday until the next week’s Wednesday. The reservation can only start on Monday, Wednesday or Friday. If the student happens to find a permanent accommodation and is no longer in need of the temporary accommodation, he/she must cancel the booking at least one working day before the next accommodation series starts by noon. Otherwise he/she is obligated to pay for the booked nights 25€/night/person. The maximum time of stay is not restricted during 21st of August and 17th of September 2017.

 

Example 1: Student has booked an accommodation from Monday afternoon to Friday morning but happens to find a permanent accommodation starting from Wednesday. The student cancels the booked temporary accommodation from Wednesday afternoon to Friday morning on Tuesday by noon and thus isn’t obligated to pay for the Wed.-Fri. reservation. 

Example 2: Student has booked temporary accommodation just to be on the safe side from Friday afternoon to Monday morning upon her arrival to Jyväskylä. She gets a call on Friday at 3 pm that she got a permanent apartment and is no longer in need of the temporary accommodation for the weekend. Because the time limit for cancelling the booking was on the one working day before the reservation starts by noon she is obligated to pay for the temporary accommodation from Friday to Monday 25€/night = 75€.     

 

Please note that temporary accommodation has limited amount of places, and unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a place for everyone. You can book your place in temporary accommodation starting from Tuesday 15th of August.
