A Survival Kit is a package of second-hand, basic domestic items needed in everyday life. The Student Union JYY offered this service for exchange students of the University of Jyväskylä until the end of the academic year 2018/2019. Our goal was to make the arrival and first days in Finland a tad easier.

As from autumn 2019 survival kits have become redundant since both Kortepohja Student Village and KOAS housing include the same basic items to their furnished apartments for exchange students.

If you are an exchange student of the University of Jyväskylä who does not live in a furnished apartment of Kortepohja or KOAS and you would be interested in getting a survival kit, please contact kv-asiantuntija@jyy.fi. Please first wait for your accommodation offer from KOAS or Kortepohja and only inquire from this e-mail address about the availability of survival kits once you know you do not get these basic domestic items via your housing provider.
