Short-term housing

If you only need housing for a few months, for example due to plumbing renovation, you can apply for short-term housing.

City-owned short-term rental housing

We offer short-term rental housing for temporary housing needs. You may receive short-term rental housing if you need to live away from your home for a few months due to, for example, a plumbing renovation, work assignment or practical training.

Short-term rental housing refers to temporarily vacant apartments reserved by Helsingin kaupungin asunnot Oy or Heka to be used as temporary housing. Due to this, short-term housing is not always available.


Other short-term housing

In addition to the City of Helsinki, several other lessors offer short-term housing. Many of the apartments are furnished. Other places where people can live temporarily include hostels, for example.
