Note: When drawing lots, ticking the ”Any” option of the application form and submitting a request in the comments field cannot be accommodated. Each applicant receives an email containing their draw number, which confirms that their application has been received and they meet the selection criteria. Each applicant can have just one application to TYS. If an applicant receives another offer for accommodation from TYS at this point, they are removed from the lottery draw queue. Those students who have already applied to TYS for accommodation may add Aitiopaikka to their application by editing it. Further information: firstname.lastname@example.org
