Survival kits

Exchange and visiting students living outside the Kortepohja Student Village can borrow basic domestics items, so called Survival Kits, against a partly refundable deposit from the Village Office Vaapukka in Kortepohja. The service is run by the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä.

The Survival Kit includes the following items:

  • blanket
  • pillow
  • bed linen
  • 3 plates
  • fork, knife, table spoon and tea spoon
  • pot with lid
  • ladle
  • mug
  • glass

All the items are second-hand. The deposit for the Survival Kit is 70 €. 50 € will be refunded to the students who have joined the Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä if the kit is returned in good and clean condition (30 € to non-members). A fee will be deducted from the deposit for any missing, damaged or dirty item. If you would like to have the kit, please inform your tutor about it. In most cases, your tutor will pick up the kit for you in advance.

Please visit the Rentukka Info desk in Kortepohja to pay for the kit. Contact information and opening hours of the office can be found on the Student village webpage.

To return the Kit, make an appointment with the Rentukka Info desk towards the end of your stay (or as soon as you know you do not need the Kit any longer). Your student card or a receipt of the Student Union membership fee should be presented when returning the Survival Kit.
