Joen­suu is a stu­dent capi­tal of eas­tern Fin­land and all you need is only walk away. Joen­suu is also the live­ly capi­tal of the North Kare­lia region. Here we have the relaxed and social Kare­lian lifes­ty­le, the joy of life being its dis­tinc­ti­ve natu­re. Approxi­ma­te­ly 25 % of Joen­suu inha­bi­tants are stu­dents. Kare­lia has its own Stu­dent Union POKA and in town you find also Eras­mus Stu­dent Network Joen­suu, which offers lots of activities.

The stu­dent housing com­pa­ny Joen­suun Elli pro­vi­des stu­dents with flats ran­ging from affor­dable sha­red flats to single-room stu­dios. Exc­han­ge stu­dents are nor­mal­ly offe­red fur­nis­hed rooms in sha­red flats. You can easi­ly reach both the city cent­re and your cam­pus by bike or by bus.
