The student unions of the universities in Turku (TYY, ÅAS), the student union of the Novia University of Applied Sciences (Novium), and the Turku University of Applied Science (TUAS) run a starting package storage where exchange students can borrow a package with household items which they then return before they leave Turku.

Please check out the opening hours before coming!

Opening hours

We will let you know as soon as there are new opening hours. The instructions below are only for students who have to leave urgently. If you are able to leave the package for someone else to return after the situation is over, please do so. 

Please read instructions before returning the package

You can return the Starting Packet in front of TYY Service Desk (Rehtorinpellonkatu 4A, ground floor) starting from 17 March at 16.30.
