Service points

In addition to the office of our own, we serve you at service points. The office of OSASTO in Kontinkangas functions as one service point, that you can visit to pick up your new student card.

Business owner! Would you like to work together?

Student Union OSAKO represents the 8500 students of Oulu University of Applied Sciences. There are several options for companies and organizations to reach our students. The prices for ads are listed in OSAKO’s media card (in Finnish). If you’re interested in advertising your services to Oulu UAS students or would like to have more information in English, please contact OSAKO’s Secretary General.


A banner on OSAKO’s website is an effective way to reach the students. The banner serves as a direct link to your company’s website. If your company is interested in offering benefits for OSAKO members, your contact information will be added to the list of benefits on OSAKO’s website. Students find their way to OSAKO’s website also via our Facebook page, which has more than 4000 followers.

Student benefits

Together with local companies, OSAKO offers benefits for its members. All partners are listed in student card benefits. OSAKO informs students about new benefits  in its newsletter, which is sent to all Oulu UAS students every second week. Members of OSAKO can be identified by a student card issued by University of Applied Sciences Students in Finland – SAMOK.


Throughout the year, OSAKO organises several parties and outdoor events which 300-1700 students attend. Sponsors are promoted when marketing the event and/or at the venue.

Give feedback

Is there something wrong with your studies? Would you like to say thank you to OSAKO for the great party last weekend? You’ve come to the right place.+ Here you can say whatever is on your mind. You may withhold your name.

    I’m here to make sure that ordered student cards reach their owners and OSAKO’s systems are working properly. It’s my job to maintain the best opportunities for board members and others to work at OSAKO: I keep all the files in order and take care of office and its daily routines. I have done my studies at OUAS and been working at the student union for over ten years. Even though sometimes I feel a bit old in this field, the best part of my job is to work with young people. In my free time I try to keep up after my daughter and after she has gone to bed, I may play a little guitar.

    Ihanaa olla osakolainen!
