Services

Housing services

Hanken’s quota of HOAS rooms does not meet the demand, especially in the autumn semester when they receive a large number of exchange students. In the autumn semester about 60% of the exchange students coming to Helsinki do not receive accommodation through HOAS. Hanken gives students from outside Europe priority to the HOAS apartments so if you are a student coming from Europe for the autumn semester, be prepared to find accommodation on the private market. However, all students are urged to apply for HOAS, without an application you cannot get an offer from them.

Hanken  provides a number of IT-services for you as a student or as Hanken faculty or staff. Many services are only available for you after login with Hanken user-id and password. As a student registered for the semester, or as an employee, you have the right to a user-id.
