Cost of living and accommodation

Cost of living and meals

Students are expected to cover their living expenses (accommodation, meals, leisure time and social activities). Degree students who have a student card are entitled to discounts at the Finnish National Railways (VR), bus transportation companies (Matkahuolto) as well as at some restaurants, department stores and smaller shops.

Each school has a restaurant nearby where lunch is served to students at subsidized student prices.
