You can now buy OSAKO’s membership and student card for new semester

You can take care of the student card things well before the beginning of the Autumn semester. Memberships for new semester are now available!

Student cards and membership stickers for the academic year of 2020-2021 are now available in Kide.app. If you already own a student card of OSAKO, it’s enough to buy only the sticker. You can order the student card or buy a new sticker for your card here.

If this is your first time acquiring the student card you can find more thorough instructions on ordering the card in OSAKO’s blog.

If you already have a student card and a sticker for the spring of 2020 or academic year 2019-2020, those are valid until the end of September 2020. You can check when your card expires from the sticker. For example, a sticker that reads 1/2021 is valid until the end of January 2021.

When and where can I pick up my order?

You can pick up your sticker when OSAKO’s office and OSASTO’s service point open their doors in August. If this is the first time you ordered the card, you will get an e-mail about when and where to pick it up.

Our office in Linnanmaa will open its doors on August the 17th. OSASTO’s service point will also open during the week 34. Service hours of OSAKO’s office are from Monday to Thursday from 10 AM until 4 PM.  You can check the exact opening hours of OSASTO’s service point in their social media channels (@osastory).

Digital student card

Before the offices open in August, you can start using the digital student card of Pivo. You can activate it once you have paid for your membership. Please note that it might take a while before the information is transferred between systems, so you might need to wait a couple of hours before you can activate the digital card. If it doesn’t work immediately, just wait for a while and try again later. You can also check that you have entered the personal identity code in your information in Kide.app.

You carry the Pivo student card conveniently in your smartphone. You can also find numerous benefits and discounts by Slice.fi in benefits (“Edut” in Finnish) section, that you can only access in Pivo . This is how to activate Pivo:
