E-mail

Once you have received your user account for the host university’s computer network (see above), you should be able to use your own UTU / ÅAU e-mail account. It is recommended that you also use this Finnish e-mail account while staying in Finland.

 

There are some mailing lists at each university and the Student Unions will provide you with information on how to join these lists. By joining the mailing list(s) of your university, you will get the most updated information concerning both study and leisure. UTU also has two lists administrated by UTU International Office to spread official information. EXCHANGE-list for exchange students and UTUINTERNATIONALS-list for visiting staff and researchers. Some of the most useful mailing lists for international visitors are:

 

UTU: EXCHANGE-list

ÅAS: ESN-ÅA-list

 

The majority of all the information about parties, excursions and social events is provided via e-mail as well as all the important information about the student unions and other student organisations. Some university departments also provide students with course information via e-mail.

 

The e-mail list of the International Office of the University of Turku will inform you about changes in course schedules etc. The International Office will add exchange students on the list automatically before their arrival to Turku/Åbo. If a student has not given the permission to join when filling the online application form, it is possible to subscribe and unsubscribe to the exchange mailing list online by giving your information at www.utu.fi/en/studying/students/exchange/home/exchangelist.html.

You can get a copy tag for the copying/printing system from IT Services or library service points. The tag includes the quota of 300 pages, which is free to students. Staff printing and copying is not restricted, but they also need a copy tag when using machines that have a reader on them.

 

The quota doesn’t automatically include paper, the paper distribution is decided by the department. The printing quota is 300 black and white pages per semester. Priting colored pages expends 10 pages of quota. The quota is tied to your utu account.

The following locations can sell credits for your quota, allowing you to print more:
