Financial aid and housing benefits for students in different situations

On this page, we tell you in which situations you can get student financial aid and housing allowance. Only the main rules are included here. There may also be other eligibility conditions. Further information is available on the web pages for the different benefits.

With the help of the calculators for student financial aid and housing allowance, you can estimate what benefits you are eligible for. The calculators are available in Finnish and in Swedish.

  • If you are 15–16 years of age and the child benefit payable for you has been withdrawn, you should state 17 years as your age in the calculator for student financial aid.
  • If you are aged 17 or under and you live alone or you are married or cohabiting, you should state that you are an adult in the calculator for housing allowance.
