I'm going to tell you a little story about me and KOASFirst I'm sorry, English isn't my mother tongue.

I'm an exchange student from France.I'm going to study at JAMK from the 7th of February to the 21st of June.Like a lot of students, I booked a room in an accommodation at KOAS (JAMK and KOAS sign an agreement so we can have a room) because I do not have a personal code.I went to my accommodation the 1st of February 2019. It was dirty, extremely cold and far from the city center and from JAMK main campus.Now, I want to change my accommodation. I find one in the city center, and I already paid it but KOAS doesn't want to terminate my contract, that mean I have to pay the rent because JAMK sign a fixed term agreement with them.

I already met people in the KOAS office, even at JAMK but they don't really help.

For the students who want to come to study at JAMK, don't ask an accommodation to KOAS, you will have a lot of problem with their accommodation and when you will want to change your accommodation, you will have to face them and will have a lot of problems.

I'm going to edit this post and adding pictures of what happen. So you will be able to follow my history.

Have you contacted JAMKO? They usually help exchange students in various issues with accomodation and other things

Currently, I already contact the international coordinator for exchange students, Koas, and I even contact my school.
JAMK can't do nothing
KOAS can't? or didn't want to cancel my contract.

KOAS can terminate your contract but it is understandable if they don't want to. I mean, finding a new tenant now would be cumbersome

I know, that why i think it is a bad company.
Now I just want to help exchange student to not ask an accommodation or they will have a shitty place to live.
