As a member of the University of Helsinki Student Union (HYY), you will be able to get a Finnish student card which is your means of proving that you're a student in Finland in all situations necessary.
Once your information has been saved in the student register, you can download Frank App on your smartphone and activate your digital student card. The digital student card provides all the same student benefits (e.g., discounts at UniCafe, HSL, the Finnish Student Health Service FSHS and UniSport) as the traditional plastic card. You can begin to use Frank App as of 1 August, i.e., when your right to study begins.
You can also order a plastic student card.
As a member of the Student Union, you will also receive a student calendar. You can collect your calendar from the Kaisa Library service desk, the Meilahti, Kumpula or Viikki campuses, or the HYY service point.
