Summer School students can arrange accommodation themselves, or apply for it from Lappeenranta Student Housing Foundation LOAS. This company provides Summer School students with a furnished single room in shared apartments (2-3 rooms per apartment, shared bathroom/shower and kitchen). The residences are within easy walking distance of the university. 

Accommodation in LOAS is usually provided from Saturday till Saturday. LUT has agreed with LOAS that students participating in the field trip can return their keys on Monday July 8th at the latest. No extra fee is required for an extra day. 

A furnished apartment includes:

  • In the kitchen – a table, benches, refrigerator, oven.

Unfortunately, there are no blankets/pillows nor kitchen utensils (no pots, pans, dishes, or cutlery) in the rooms. The University provides students with a mattress and curtains (Even the white nights are one of Finland's most fantastic events, it might be hard to fall asleep without curtains).
