Survival Kit for exchange students

Start your exchange period stress-free with a Survival Kit!internationalisation

A Survival Kit is a rentable utensil package offered to exchange students of JAMK University of Applied Sciences. Renting a Survival Kit is completely optional, but will surely ease one’s first days in Finland as it includes basic living necessities such as kitchen equipment, a blanket, a pillow, covers and towels. The content is different quality, different color and mainly used, but washed. The Survival Kit is rented as a whole and its content as individual items cannot be rented. Approximately 80% of exchange students rent a Survival Kit and good feedback has been received regarding the service.

The rental price of the Survival Kit is 75€ per one academic year out of which a deposit is returned to the renter upon the Survival Kit’s return in good, clean condition. 40€ will be returned to members of the student union, 30€ to non-members. JAMKO membership is therefore a valuable investment for exchange students! The price is always the same regardless of the rental period.

If you are interested in renting a Survival Kit, contact your own tutor. Tutors handle Survival Kit reservations and pick-ups so you will have less things to worry about in terms of your arrival.  The kits can be reserved for one semester or for the whole academic year at a time, but the reservation is binding. Survival Kits can be paid and returned at the JAMKO office (Rajakatu campus, room FP23) only during office opening hours.

More detailed information and a list of the kit’s content on JAMKO’s website. Your tutor will provide you with a more detailed information about the specifics.
