Collecting apartment keys

When arriving you will receive two keys which open the front door, door to the apartment, door to your room, and mailbox. The keys also give access to common areas. The keys of the apartment are given to your Kummi student before your arrival and you will get your keys from them. If you are not sure who your Kummi is please contact the University. The tenant does not have the right to make extra copies of the keys. For security reasons do not leave the address of the room in the key chain when receiving the keys.

Outside office hours contact janitor on duty, tel. +35810 5833 000. Be prepared to prove your identity.

Returning the apartment keys

When the tenancy agreement ends you must return your keys. There are boxes for the keys on the ground floor of Tellervontie, Tutkijantie (staircase C), Tirolintie and Yliopistokatu 16. Keys can be returned in the key boxes or to PSOAS Lounge (Paavo Havaksen tie 5 at the University of Oulu). There are key return boxex outside the office also. One next to the front door of PSOAS Lounge inside the University and another one located outside in front of staircase C. Return the keys in an envelope with your name and address clearly marked.

If the last day of the month is weekend or holiday the keys have to be returned by the following working day by 12 pm. If the keys are not returned in time PSOAS will charge daily rent until the keys are returned. Keys are not to be left in the apartment. 50 € is charged from the deposit for the collection of the keys in case the keys are left in the apartment.

If you give the keys directly to the new tenant, it is your responsibility to agree on the apartment check with the janitor. The apartment has to be cleaned and checked before you hand over the keys. You will also need to sign this form with the new tenant to document the keys given and the condition of the apartment. Please bring or e-mail the signed form to the housing office.
