Come and enjoy the fresh air of spring days and spend an afternoon outdoors! Sausage roasting and coffee brewing on open fire takes place in Lämsänjärvi camping center on Wednesday, April 3rd, from 4pm to 7pm. You can enjoy the afternoon just by relaxing by the fire. Children get to take part in outdoor activities and adults can join to the activity. In case of bad weather we spend the evening indoors. The event is open for all students, with or without children!

Please let us know if you are coming by clicking ‘attending’ here, so that we know to prepare enough drinks and snacks for everyone. We will offer sausages or a vegetarian option, coffee, tea, juice and marshmallows. You can also bring your own snacks if you wish. This event is alcohol-free.

FSHS services expands to cover students of universities of applied sciences

The Government of Finland’s proposal for higher education student’s health care was approved by the Parliament on 1.3.2019. The aim of the law is to secure well-functioning and equal student health care services for both university and university of applied sciences students. Kela will have administrative responsibility for providing health services to higher education students, including the collection of a healthcare fee. The services will continue to be delivered by the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS). The Act will come into force on 1 January 2021.

OYY will communicate about the practical changes in more detail closer to the act coming into force.
