Exchange students who are members of the Student Union (ISYY) can rent a survival package which includes several things that are needed in everyday life. The package is our way of helping you to get started with your life in your campus city. By renting a survival package, you will avoid spending a lot of money on some of the essentials upon your arrival. The idea is reusing, so most of the items are second-hand, but they are in good condition.
The package content is different in Joensuu and Kuopio.
Please note that there is a limited number of the packages on both campuses so remember to book yours in advance.
Please watch this brief video about how to handle and how not to handle the survival package:
