Novia UAS does not offer student accommodation. Students are expected to arrange their own living before their arrival in Finland/or place of study. Apply for student living as soon as possible after receiving your decision on student admission to ensure that you have a place to stay. In Raseborg/Ekenäs there is a company that rents apartments on campus for students called Kustregionens utbildningsfastigheter. These appartments have some furniture and internet. If you want to live off campus there is an useful site on Facebook called "Raseborgs bostadsmarknad".
How to get to campus Raseborg?
Campus Raseborg is situated at Raseborgsvägen 9 in Ekenäs (Raaseporintie 9 in Tammisaari). If you arrive by car, you will find the parking lot in front of the main building. You can also take the train or the bus. The train station is a 10 minutes walk from campus and the bus stop is almost opposite of the main building.
