The Finnish Student Health Service offers health services (general health, oral health, mental health) to university students. FSHS services are available to all undergraduate students of Finnish universities at any FSHS location around Finland. The FSHS fee that entitles them to use the services is included in the Student Union membership fee.
Healthy lifestyles and good human relations influence health, fitness, and endurance. Taking care of one’s own well-being includes also seeking timely health care assistance. All health and illness issues during time of study can be consulted with FSHS services.
The FSHS Vaasa office can be found at the address: Hovioikeudenpuistikko 15 C, 3rd floor (entrance from the Hartmann corner).
You can use the FSHS services as long as your student union membership is valid. If you have paid your student union membership fee for the full academic year, your right to use the FSHS services starts on 1 August and ends on 31 July. Autumn term membership starts on 1 August and ends on 31 December. Spring term membership starts on 1 January and ends on 31 July.
The membership fee must be paid before an FSHS appointment even if your appointment is before the date your membership fee is due. Information that you have paid your membership fee will be transferred to the FSHS within a few days after the payment. Be prepared to prove that your student union membership is valid with either a valid student card or a certificate of student status from your university.
