Student card and membership benefits

What is a student card?

As a member of Student Union OSAKO, you can get the SAMOK student card, which is also the OSAKO membership card. The card proves that you are a student, and therefore entitled to student discounts.

You can order the student card after you have officially accepted your study place and Oulu UAS has added your information into their student register. As a student of Oulu UAS, you can get the student card only from OSAKO. The card is valid when there is a valid academic year /semester sticker on it. The sticker is a proof of your student union membership.

When you join OSAKO for the first time, you pay for the card and for the membership, which includes the valid semester sticker. In the following years you will only need to renew your membership and pay for the new sticker. Autumn semester stickers are valid until the end of next January, spring semester stickers until the end of next September, and academic year stickers until the end of following year’s September.

First-year students also get a culture voucher, provided by the City of Oulu. With the voucher you can visit cultural institutes of Oulu (theatre, museums) for a very affordable price or even for free. In addition, ESN Oulu offers all new exchange students a complimentary goodie bag. The bag includes a map, useful information about services and events for exchange students and a prepaid sim-card. You can get the bag at the joint orientation event or pick it up afterwards at OSAKO’s office.

Eating, drinking, traveling, sports – there is a lot when it comes to student card discount benefits! The best part is that in addition to dozens of local benefits, several befits are also national. Benefits of the student card are listed on this page.

Although the discounts are an awesome benefit, remember that your membership is way more than just a student card! Learn more about what OSAKO does and how you can get involved.
