Foundation residences

All of our residences are located in prime areas with excellent connections to public transportation. There are also great connections between educational facilities and local towns and villages.


The Hämeenlinna Student Housing Foundation has provided the Hämeenlinna area with housing services for students of various educational facilities since 1987. Our most notable benefactor is the city of Hämeenlinna, which has designated several properties to the foundation, such as Visakylä and Kampuskaarre, as well as organising the initial funding for our development projects. In the Summer of 2005 we also expanded into Riihimäki, where we have 139 apartments.


The foundation board has three student members, one of whom is selected by the residents themselves. The administration is assisted in residency affairs by a residents committee, which is comprised of representatives selected by each individual unit. The foundation organises regular residents nights and different events to improve housing quality and information flow.
