PSOAS tenants can sign up their apartment for subleasing for a maximum period of one year. Therefore, if you are going to another town for a summer job, internship, or out of the country for an exchange, you don’t necessarily have to give up your apartment. Instead, you can sublease it for another student or someone staying in Oulu impermanently. If you are looking for a place to stay for a period of time yourself, can our Flat exchange be the solution in that case too.

PSOAS Flat exchange is only operating as an ad space connecting students and available apartments. Counterparts should always contact directly each other. The latest posts are at the top of the page and they are held on the list for two weeks at a time.

Hi, I would like to sublease my room in a shared apartment. (Your private room with independent key) Basically, you will share a kitchen, a bathroom, and a shower with your flatmate, but your flatmate cannot access your room without your key. There is only one roommate, and other bathrooms and showers are also available within the flat property area, so there is no congestion in the bathroom! The apartment is about 1 km from the Oulu university and has an excellent bus connection to the university and the city center. (Weekdays Morning: about every 4-10 mins, Last bus on Friday night: 3:40 (Saturday)) There are multiple grocery stores within 1 km. It's of course possible to walk to school or stores within 15 mins. The apartment was renovated in 2015 – 2016 and is well maintained. The private room size is about 12m2. The shared kitchen comes with basic cooking equipment (Fridge & freezer, knife, cutting board, etc.) The room is furnished. (Desk x2, office chair, wooden chair, bed x1) There might be changes, but I will likely leave these things in my room. You will also get access to a laundry room, sauna, and club room (where you can host a party) for free! Parking is available with additional payments (15 EUR per month) The rent is only 300 EUR per month including water, electricity and internet. The room is available from the middle of August to the end of January. A deposit is required in advance. *Please note that pictures are not promising furniture in the room. Most electrical appliances will be removed from the room (e.g. computers) I will prepare a list of furniture in the room before we make a contract. The room is suitable for both exchange and degree students. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me! I am willing to help you 🙂

Hei! Olen Emilia, kolmannen vuoden rakennusarkkitehtiopiskelija ja etsin itselleni asuntoa Oulusta syyskuusta 2024 alkaen! Vuokralaisena olen rauhallinen ja luotettava, en tupakoi enkä omista lemmikkejä. Asunnon tarve minulla olisi joko koko alkavaksi lukuvuodeksi syyskuusta 2024 huhtikuun 2025 loppuun tai vaihtoehtoisesti vain syyslukukaudeksi 2024 (syys-joulukuulle).
