CampusSport’s new geocaching route opened

CampusSport has created seven different geocaching routes for you around Turku. The routes are free to use and made for everyone. A new route called Via Dolorosa was opened 1 Dec. Via Dolorosa, aka Ruissalo Beach boulevard, is a significant road because a considerable part of the Finnish population has wandered that path after having spent a day or two in the Ruisrock music festival. In order to go through the route you need a GoCache app that you can download from CampusCache web page. Students and staff members of the universities in Turku can win prizes by going through GoCache routes.

Teaching in Spring Semester Starts as Planned

In the spring semester, the University of Turku aims to provide as much contact teaching as possible. The coronavirus situation requires that the instructions on safety measures are followed in all activities. The University implements a restriction on the maximum number of participants or the COVID-19 certificate in public events.
