OYY was founded in the autumn of 1959 to nurture the mental well-being of students and to advocate their economic welfare, as well as to promote education, morality and order. The Student Union has organized various events, looked after students’ everyday life and built student housing. Today, the student union has been operating for more than 60 years, representing students in Oulu and supervising their interests.

OYY’s anniversary is celebrated for more than a week. Anniversary celebrations start on Saturday February 18th with the anniversary sitsit on the Linnanmaa campus. The week of the 63rd annual ball is full of a variety of programs and activities that are open to all members of the student union.
