Survival Packages

Members of the Student Union (ISYY) who stay in Joensuu or Kuopio for the maximum time of one academic year can rent a survival package which includes several things that are needed in everyday life. The idea is recycling, so most of the items are second-hand.

The package content is different in Joensuu and Kuopio.

Please watch this brief video about how to handle and how not to handle the survival package:
