Living and Accommodation
It is fairly easy to find a place to live in Kajaani. A company called Kiinteistö Oy Kajaanin Pietari offers shared accommodation and also bigger, so-called 'family apartments'. Some of the accommodation is located on campus and other housing is located 1 – 3 km from the UAS. Internet connection is available for all student apartments for a separate price.
On the shared student accommodation on campus, there are 5 students to one apartment, all have their own rooms (only one tenant per room), the kitchen and bathrooms are shared. Each apartment has two bathrooms. The accommodation also offers shared laundry and sauna facilities. The rooms are furnished with bed, table and chair. Most international students live in shared student accommodation.
Finding an other type of accommodation in Kajaani is also possible but more complicated. When renting a room from private markets, the price will most likely be on the same level and also, in most cases, you'll have to buy the furniture (bed, table, chair, sofa, lamps...) yourself but also for example make an agreement with an electricity company.
