The services provided be the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä make sure that you can focus on the most special moments of your life. In Kortepohja all the services are near to you. Groceries are right around the corner and a great deal of hobby opportunities are right in the neighbourhood. Bus stops that will take you right to town are right outside your window.

The Kortepohja area has been developed by the Student Union since 1968. JYY wants to be a part of this development in the future as well. In addition to developing the area we make sure our apartments always have what the tenants need. Building and renovating within Kortepohja is an important part of our service.
