Practically oriented studies and nature-centred living in Finland

Studies at Centria University of Applied Sciences are very practically oriented: students work on real-life cases, visit companies and undertake work placements.  Students are personally guided throughout their studies, both by a student counsellor as well as an allocated teacher tutor that advises them on all issues.   

Upon your arrival at Centria, student tutors will welcome you; they will show the newcomers around their new town and explain to them how to get around. The student union COPSA organises events throughout the year to help students get to know each other, such as outdoor activities, games, parties, etc.

Kokkola is a human-sized town, which is extremely safe for all: the crime rate is extremely low, and it is safe to walk around at any time. The city is surrounded by nature and close to the sea; students can enjoy the pure fresh air and the outdoors at any time!  

Accommodation in Kokkola

Centria Housing taking over Tankkari housing services

Centria Housing is taking over the Tankkari student housing activities as of October 15th, meaning that accommodation services will be in even better reach of the students. Students can deal with accommodation related issues right on campus.

Centria Housing will be offering furnished rooms, single and family apartments. Family apartments (studio to 2 bedroom flats) are unfurnished; they are rented out to people belonging to the same household. Couples and single students (aged over 18) can apply for studios.

Shared apartments are always rented out as furnished flats. The furniture includes a desk, a chair, a bookshelf and a bed (in some rooms, the bed is only a frame without a mattress – 80*200 cm, such as Tankkari III and V). Residents are in charge of bringing bed clothing, dishes. Electricity, water and heating fees are included in the rent.  However, the rent does not include water and electricity in the Tankkari I flats, meaning their residents will be billed separately. Sauna is free of charge for all Tankkari residents.
There are laundries in all Tankkari residences, which can be paid for by phone. Some prepaid subscriptions may not work. Heated park spaces can be rented out for a 3 € monthly fee. Contact the housing office if you want to rent a parking space.
The apartments are “Internet-ready”, but residents should contact the operator of their choice and contract it themselves. All apartments are linked to the cable network. Each shared room has a TV socket.
