Students use @student.uef.fi or @edu.karelia.fi address. Staff members use @uef.fi or @karelia.fi address. After registering, you will receive a username and password to log on the SYKETTÄ service.
PLEASE NOTE! You cannot buy a sports sticker before you have registered as a user!
B) Buy a sports sticker
You can buy sports stickers on our online shop, via the mobile application, or at the offices of the Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY) and the Student Union POKA of Karelia University of Applied Sciences. Users on the Joensuu campus pay the sports fee in Joensuu.
NB! If you are a University staff member and you want access to the Aurora gym, please notify us (email@example.com) or UEF (firstname.lastname@example.org) of your payment, then we know to open access for you.
There are two ways to use a sports sticker:
– The mobile sticker on the mobile application and/or
– A physical sports sticker attached to a student card, staff card, or a separate blanco card
Download the SYKETTÄ mobile application to buy and use the mobile sticker. With the application, you can start using SYKETTÄ right away without visiting a campus office. You can use the mobile sticker instead of or alongside a physical sticker.
You can buy or pick up physical stickers from a campus office. You will need a valid student or staff card. You can pay the sports sticker at the offices, or beforehand in our online shop or in the mobile application. If you do not have a student or staff card, you will receive a separate blanco card with the sticker attached.
A valid sticker is an absolute requirement for using the services. Always keep your sports sticker with you when using the services! Be prepared to present your sticker when requested. Mobile application users must be prepared to prove their identity (e.g. with a student card or an identity card).
C) Enroll on classes
Users must enroll beforehand on all instructed group exercise classes, instructed and open ball sports turns and other exercise turns, free turns and family turns. Users enroll on classes using the sports calendar on either the SYKETTÄ website or the mobile application. Enrollment always starts 7 days before the class begins. The ‘Enroll’ button below the class description will be active once enrollment has started. Only enroll on one class/turn at a time. Overlapping enrollments are treated as irrevocable enrollments.
Depending on the event, enrollment for sports courses or introductory sports classes usually starts 14 days before the event. Users do not need to enroll on gym turns or regular turns for student and staff groups.
You can check your upcoming classes by clicking ‘Own enrollments’ at the top of the SYKETTÄ website, or in the Personal Calendar section of the mobile application. Keep in mind that the number of participants is limited, and popular classes might fill up very quickly.
The universities do not have insurance for SYKETTÄ users, users are responsible for their own safety while using SYKETTÄ services.
