The University of Eastern Finland offers its staff and students the opportunity to utilise sports services with the intent of increasing general well-being.

The Student Union aims to provide its members with fun experiences and the pure joy of exercise. It is not our intent to turn our members into serious athletes, but to encourage them to spontaneously partake in sports activities. The Student Union aims to achieve this by organising events such as the bi-annual sports afternoon, where members are given the opportunity to try out a variety of sports that suit various individual skills and tastes. Learn more about sports on campuses!

International clubs

Student clubs operate under the Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland as not-for-profit societies seeking to provide university students with inspiring leisure time activities. The activities of the clubs are required to follow the law, good manners and the rules of the Student Union. The membership base of all clubs is made up of Student Union members. Learn about our international clubs!
