Loan Society

The Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä has reserved a small loan society for its members. In other words, any member of the Student Union can be granted a loan of 500 euros or less. All the loans have an annualized interest rate of 7 % and have to be repaid within six months. There are no handling charges.

If you wish to apply for a loan, you will need two warrantors, both of which have to be Finnish citizens and over 18 years old. One person cannot act as a warrantor for more than two loans at once. You can get the application form from the Central Office, the Specialist in Social Affairs or the Accommodation Office in Kortepohja Student Village.
