Novia UAS does not offer student accommodation. Students are expected to arrange their own living before their arrival in Finland/or place of study. Apply for student living as soon as possible after receiving your decision on student admission to ensure that you have a place to stay. In Ekenäs there is a company that rents apartments on campus for students called Kustregionens utbildningsfastigheter. These appartments have some furniture and internet. If you want to live off campus there is an useful site on Facebook called "Raseborgs bostadsmarknad".
How to get to campus Raseborg?
Campus Raseborg is situated at Raseborgsvägen 9 in Ekenäs (Raaseporintie 9 in Tammisaari). If you arrive by car, you will find the parking lot in front of the main building. You can also take the train or the bus. The train station is a 10 minutes walk from campus and the bus stop is almost opposite of the main building.
Bring Your Own Device practice, BYOD
Campus Raseborg is constantly working to improve and modernize the education and educational profile. Since computers have become a common part of our everyday work, all students, who begin their studies onwards, should have their own laptops for their studies (Bring Your Own Device practice, BYOD).
The campus will continue to have computer rooms, especially for the parts of the study work that require heavier software and special equipment.
When purchasing the computer, you should choose a laptop equipped with office software, internet connection and web camera.
The operation system that we recommended is Winows 7 or newer. Mac OS X doesn’t have extensive support. Linux and other operation systems are not supported by Novias ICT-services.
When starting your studies, instructions on how to get free access to Microsoft Office 365 will be given and also how you can get the antivirus programme F-Secure for a reduced price.
Membership in the student union Novium
As a member of the Student Union of Novia, Novium, you can enjoy many benefits during your years of studying. For instance you'll get a calendar for free, cheaper entrance fees at events and legal advising for free. The membership fee is only 10 euro per academic year. The student card from the student union gives you discount on train and bus tickets and on student lunch (in student restaurants).
