News | 31.7.2019

The opening hours for the Starting Package Storage have been updated.

There are two ways you could receive a starting package:

A) Your tutor picks up a package for you before you arrive

Please let your tutor know in advance whether or not you want the package. Your tutor picks up a package for you during our opening hours.

You should come to the Starting Package storage within two weeks after your arrival with the following two receipts (paper/screen shot) to sign a contract paper. Please bring with you:

  • Receipt showing that starting package fee (€70) has been paid (€50 deposit and €20 for loaning fee)
  • Receipt showing that student union membership fee has been paid (fee varies depending on your stay).

Exceptions: TUAS and Novia students: Students don’t need to pay the student union membership fee. Get a student proof from your school (e.g. letter of acceptance/ student card/ student certificate/ registration paper etc.)

 If you have received a starting package, and have not signed a borrower's agreement within two weeks after your arrival, you will receive a penalty fee of €10.00, which will be deducted from your deposit.

B) You pick up a starting package yourself after you have arrived to Finland

In this case you need to check the opening hours of the storage to see that they fit with your arrival time. Depending on what time you are arriving, the storage might not be open anymore and you will have to spend the first night without the items of the package.
