Welcome to Vaasa!

Welcome to Vaasa, the pearl of the West Coast!

The Student Union wishes that you’ll have a wonderful time in the city of Vaasa and in the University of Vaasa.

The Student Union of the University of Vaasa (VYY) is a student organization of 4100 members. VYY is a self-governing community subject to public law and its status is defined in the Finnish student union act. All University of Vaasa students undertaking bachelor’s or master’s degrees are members of the student union. Doctorate level students and exchange students can join the union if they wish to do so.

We strongly encourage all the exchange students to join the Student Union. Membership grants access to all of our services, including student health care services, survival kits and many more.

In case you have any questions about the Student union, do not hesitate to ask the executive board or the personnel via email or by visiting us at the VYY service office!
