Information about housing
The City of Helsinki owns more than 56,000 rental apartments, most of which are reasonably priced Ara* rental apartments financed with state support. We provide 3,000–4,000 Ara apartments to applicants annually. Our two property management company partners have apartments in various sizes throughout Helsinki: from properties that outdate Helsinki itself to newer constructions.
In addition to Ara apartments, we also provide non-subsidised rental apartments, housing for employees of the City of Helsinki, and apartments for short-term housing needs, for example, during periods of plumbing renovation or practical training.
