Every tenant of VOAS student house foundation can join into the residence action. Through it you are able to get to know your neighborhood and neighbors better and also affect to the comfortness of your own residence and residential area.
The statutory tasks of resident operations are written in law but in practice residence action at VOAS is more informal. VOAS has four different resident councils: City center, Olympia, Palosaari and other areas outside city. The cooperation delegation is gathered from the representatives of each resident council and it functions as a main organization to the resident operations. By this way tenants of VOAS are able to influence own living environment easily!
Resident council supervises your living environment
Through the resident councils you have a possibility to participate decisions making at VOAS. We are pleased to welcome you to the occasions and trips which resident councils are actively arranging. We would also like to hear all kind of ideas how to improve living facilities, no matter do they concern either sauna turns or cleaning of bicycle shed. And of course we like to receive ideas for the occasions of which aims are to get people know their neighbors and the activities of neighborhood.
The cooperation delegation decides an annual budget for every resident council so that tenants would have many possibilities to improve and maintain the activity every year. The resident councils can decide about the rules and regulations, division of car parking places, and sauna and laundry room turns in each real estate. They can also act as a mediator in conflicts, arrange voluntary work and other joint occasions. There are millions of possibilities!
The cooperation delegation has the say
The cooperation delegation (YVA) gathers all the representatives of all resident councils. From the members of YVA are chosen representatives of tenants and their back up members to the government of VOAS. YVA gives its statement of the foundations financial statement, annual report, planning’s and budget.
Come along to resident action!

In the late autumn we will also keep a meeting of tenants were everyone has a right to use their voice and were the resident councils are chosen for the next coming year.
Resident councils of City center, Olympia and Palosaari are arranging occasions actively around the year. In the sprong there will be at least game nights and pre-Christmas parties at the end of the year.
I’m pleased to welcome you to living at VOAS and join into the resident action!
