Coffee & Friends

07.02.2023 - 07.02.2023 |Kaikki

Coffee & Friends event's idea is to offer low-threshold hanging out after lectures and the opportunity to meet other students over coffee and a snack. All students of the University of Eastern Finland are welcome to Coffee & Friends. You can come to the café alone or with a friend. In addition, Coffee & Friends has a changing chill program.

The café meets on Tuesdays from February 7th forward from 4 pm-6 pm at the Studentia chapel in Kuopio and in the AU110 fireplace room in Joensuu. You can get to the fireplace room by walking from between the Aurora buildings to the backyard, turn left and continue walking straight to the end of the backyard. At the end of the road is the front door of the building that you can enter. The same door also leads to Aurora's gym. Exceptionally 21.2. AU208 room works as a facility for Coffee & Friends.
