Student housing

Ylva was among the first to offer housing services for students. We are student-owned, and our owners’ needs are naturally taken into consideration as we plan our operation. For instance, we offer accommodation in the city centre for hundreds of students every study year. In addition to real estate management, different housing solutions remain among our interests.

In the future, we will also introduce accommodation aimed at researchers in the form of the Lyyra block to be constructed in Helsinki.

Both community and privacy

Ylva has operated the largest summer hotel by the name Hostel Domus Academica for several decades, and in May 2019, the accommodation gets a new look and identity under the name Both. At Both, visitors won’t have to choose between privacy and community, as the modern shared spaces and private rooms provide the opportunity to have both.

With the launch of Both, we wish to better convey our values, and lift the history of the Domus Academica premises and Finnish art and design found in the building to the spotlight. We also operate Both even more sustainably. As a part of Ylva, we compensate the carbon emissions from the accommodation business, including the emissions of our guests, via Compensate.
