Connecting International Finns and Finnish Internationals

INTO offers a lending service for household equipment for all international students at Hervanta Campus. Our service is mainly reserved for students studying at Hervanta Campus, if you are studying at the centre campus you should check out the starting kit service by ESN FINT! There are two different sets that can be borrowed, as well as some extra items.

A small service fee is charged for the starting kits (5€), an addition to the deposit (20€). The deposit is returned to the student completely once the items are returned in their initial condition (clean and dry). When returning the kit, we will inspect the set and deduct money from the deposit if necessary.

Utensils borrowing and returning sessions are organized usually at the beginning and the end of each semester. The dates are announced via the club’s official communication channels, but usually also Facebook. The sets are given out on a first-come-first-serve system.

In case of questions or requests please contact
