Xamk has campuses in four towns: Kotka, Kouvola, Mikkeli and Savonlinna. The range of services on our campus is wide: restaurants, cafés, libraries, indoor and outdoor sport and leisure facilities, as well as services to promote studying and student well-being.
The learning environments – classrooms, auditoriums, laboratories, workshops – are modern and comfortable. The facilities offered by Xamk are highly valued by our international students.
The housing situation in South-East Finland is good, compared to the situation in the Helsinki region or other similar European metropolises.
The rental level is relatively low, and finding affordable accommodation is quite easy. However, you should keep in mind that at the beginning of the autumn term there are many students looking for accommodation. So, remember to be quick to apply for housing either through the student housing services or in the private rental sector.
Degree students arrange housing themselves before their arrival in Finland; unfortunately, Xamk cannot offer accommodation for students. Please, look for more information from new students website.
