Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students and international exchange students are eligible for discounted meals at most campus restaurants. You qualify for the meal subsidy at the restaurant by presenting a valid student ID card. As the Student Union membership is not compulsory for exchange students, those students who decide not to obtain the student card may request a meal subsidy card from the Student and Learning Services in order to get the discount.
Please note that the official study certificate, which you will obtain upon registration, can be used as a temporary proof of your student status at the university restaurants for one month (September or January) before you receive the proper student card.
Student discounts do not apply to cafeteria products.
Doctoral students are entitled to have lunch at staff prices at the campus restaurants. To get the discount, the person must present a researchers’ lunch card signed by the department head, which can be obtained from the department. Note! In Joensuu, the Amica restaurant located in the Carelia building offers prices to doctoral students that are lower than the staff prices. To get the doctoral student prices, the person must present their doctoral student study certificate or student card.
