At Tavasthem we provide student accommodation in the heart of Turku, close to both campus and the city centre with all the best restaurants in town. At Tavasthem you can choose to relax in the comfort of your own room or to socialize with the rest of the tenants in the Tavasthem community.  

Tavasthem was renovated in 2017 and has 44 updated rooms in which modern comfortability and architect Erik Bryggmans’ signature mid-century style coexists in balance. There are both studio apartments (approx. 16m²)  and two-room apartments (approx. 32m²) at Tavasthem. Most of the apartments have their own refrigerator, WC and a space for a microwave. Some of the two-room apartments also have their own showers and stove.  

All tenants have access to the communal kitchens, showers and laundry room. Furthermore, the rent includes weekly communal sauna shifts and WiFi. The house is also home to a lunch restaurant, event venues, a gym, an esthetician and the popular burger joint Linna Burgers.  

The security deposit is equal to two monts of rent. All leases are signed for a minimum period of 12 months. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our service expert Markus at
