Stay active! – students’ wellbeing in summer

Student Union ISYY organises this summer Stay Active! – students’ wellbeing in summertime -project with the funding from European Social Fund. Project is organised at Joensuu campus and online between 22.6.– 31.8.2020. The events are open to all UEF students. Students of the Kuopio campus can also participate in online events.

The aim of the project is to support you in matters related to summer studies and working life, as well as to maintain the ability to study during the summer. Via project we also want to improve the community spirit of students. We organise i.e. small group guidances supporting your study ability and other activities that support the students’ wellbeing.

During the summer you can participate in:

  • ​​​​​​​study groups: welcome to write your thesis!
  • gentle workouts: group exercise classes are organised from Monday to Wednesday
  • activities for better wellbeing: outdoor games (i.e. mölkky), local hiking and cooking

You are warmly welcome, the events are open for all students!

Feel free to invite your friend!

Clear your desk of loans and fees before summer!

Now is the time to return your loans and pay fees online.

You can return books through the book drop hatches near the campus libraries’ front doors in Kuopio Snellmania and Joensuu Carelia.

After this, you can pay overdue fees online via UEF Primo. We will invoice payments during the summer, so it is advisable to check your due dates and pay overdue fees before summer vacation.

You can return books through the book drop hatches throughout the summer eventhough the libraries will be renovated. For more information contact
