Available Apartments


There is a vacant 23 m² studio apartment as of 1st of  October in Oranssi´s residential community located at Solakalliontie 11 B 5 in the neighborhood of Itä-Pakila, Helsinki.

The apartment is located in a wooden house along good public transport connections, a few hundred meters away from the nearest bus stop.

The apartment can be applied by anyone under 25 years of age including young families, in which at least one of the adults is under 25 years old. Anyone who has already turned 25 is overaged to apply for an Oranssi apartment.

All applications must be handed in personally on following dates at the house in Solakalliontie 11:

WEDNESDAY 20th of September from 6pm to 8pm
SATURDAY 23rd of September from 12pm to 2pm

Only the applications that are filled in personally at the location during the above-mentioned times will be taken into account in choosing the new resident.

The new tenant will be informed, and before signing a lease contract they have to present the most recent confirmed tax certificate.


Living at Oranssi is communal and the residents are expected to work actively and independently for the community by maintaining and improving their own living environment. The residents share collectively the responsibilities over yard work, communal spaces and the maintenance and renovations of the houses. In addition, the residents have regular house meetings where common matters are discussed and decided.

The work done by the tenants enables Oranssi to maintain the rents affordable. However, compared to conventional forms of rental housing, living at Oranssi requires significantly stronger commitment and readiness to invest personal free time to common work and house meetings.

All Oranssi apartments are located in old wooden houses, where the level of equipment and comfort of living do not correspond to many of the modern standards of rental housing.

Oranssi Apartments can be applied by anyone under 25 years of age including young families, in which at least one of the adults is under 25 years old. Despite the age limit, the duration of residency at Oranssi Apartments is not limited.

The most important criteria for choosing new residents are: age, low income, the need for an apartment and an interest in Oranssi’s communal, active and independent way of housing. A rent deposit is not required and a bad credit history will not affect your chances of getting an apartment.

Filling the application form must happen at the location of the vacant apartment during the application period. The application form cannot be submitted by mail or e-mail. All applications will be handled confidentially.
