Well I don't need a car, or a cable TV. Just a Phone subscription and food.
The thing is TOAS provies electricity, water and internet with the rent, so I just wanted an estimate about how much more expancive it will be on private sector.
Just for comparation, TOAS offered me a room with shower/WC and shared kitchen in the very central Tampere. 28 sq/m for 540e (includes all costs).
It's seems that I can get around Tammela a little bigger flat with my own kitchen for 500e(+all living expances it will be around 570e).
It is not THAT a big difference. Anyone can tell me why TOAS considered as so cheap?
Because you are assuming living costs are cheap. Also, (TO)AS-apartments tend to come furnished. Is the other apartment furnished?
Student housing usually has fast internet, you have to shovel up around 20-30 euros a month for equivalent from open market.
Electricity depends on your use.
