No rent increases in 2024

The economic and global situation of recent years has tested the real estate market with an increase in interest rates and prices. The rise in interest rates, along with rapidly escalating construction costs, poses challenges to the daily operations of housing entities, constrains opportunities for investments, and puts pressure on rent increases. Despite the challenging economic situation, according to Moas’s budget for 2024, there will be no rent increases for the upcoming year.

The parking fee has undergone a slight price adjustment. As of January 1, 2024, the parking fee will be 10,00 €/month (2023: 8,00 €/month).

Information for applicants

Due to high demand, we have not been able to offer all applicants student housing apartment. However, our apartments become available every month throughout the year.

If your requests, contact information, etc. have changed, it is advisable to update the application by sending a new one or contacting Tenant Secretary directly. Please note that e.g. there are significantly fewer applications for shared apartments and some remote properties, so it is faster to become a tenant in them.

In other words, if you were to accept an apartment other than that indicated in the original application, please let us know via email for example. If you no longer need student housing at all, please let us know.

Sorting of plastic packaging from the beginning of July 1, 2023

In all buildings sorting of plastic packaging will be started from July 1, 2023. We change some mixed waste containers to the plastic packages containers and some new waste containers for plastic packages will be brought to the collection point of your property.

Plastic packages:

  • Plastic food packages such as yoghurt pots, deli meat and cheese packages
  • Detergent and shampoo bottles
  • Plastic bottles, canisters and cans

Only clean and dry packages. Caps, lids and pumps separate from the packages. Throw dirty packages into mixed waste. Take the waste to the waste collection point of your housing company.

Beware of scam messages

Yesterday and today scam messages have been sent to residents of rental housing companies in the purpose of getting the recipient to pay the rent to the wrong account. Scam messages have been sent both as text messages and e-mails. Do not react if you receive a new account number for Mikkelin opiskelija-asunnot Oy (MOAS) by text message or email. The messages are written in fluently Finnish, which do not contain links but there is a new account number.

The account number of Mikkelin opiskelija-asunnot Oy (MOAS) has not changed AND we have not sent messages.

If you have paid the rent to the account mentioned in the scam message, the rent must still be paid normally with the correct payment details to Mikkelin opiskelija-asunnot Oy’s (MOAS’) bank account. Please contact your bank as soon as possible and report the matter to the police.
