How to buy





Please take with you a valid student or staff card. When paying the sports fee you’ll get SYKETTÄ sticker to your card, which allows you to use the schools’ sports facilities and services. If you don’t have a valid, Finnish student card, you may get a new sports card.

All customers should register through the webpage as a university sports user. For registration you need a valid university email address. Registered users will receive a user name and password, which will allow them to register for sports shifts, sport tryouts, and group classes, through the SYKETTÄ webpage.

Who has the right to use the sports services?

Below you will find an explanation of those groups that may use the universities’ sports services. All of those coming to Studentia’s facilities will be asked to show their SYKETTÄ sticker. Also, everyone in group classes, general sports shifts, as well as regular shifts will be asked by an instructor or group leader to show their SYKETTÄ sticker.


UEF’s and Savonia’s sports services are available to all students that are completing a degree in these respective schools and have registered themselves as present for the academic year. For HUMAK and Uniarts the students studying in Kuopio are eligible to use the services.

These groups are:
– Finnish and foreign degree students
– Exchange students that are studying for at least 3 months

Also in UEF:
– Finnish and foreign students continuing their studies

The services may be used until the end of the school year in which you graduate. For example, if a student graduates on 16.10, he or she has the right to use the services until the end of the spring semester, on 31.7, provided that he or she has a valid student card.

The right to study and present attendance may be checked from the student card and the student registry. Students will receive, if necessary, proof from the student and administration service (UEF) or the student services (Savonia).

Those not allowed to use the services in UEF and Savonia are students whose studies do not lead to a final degree (excluded are exchange students and recently graduated students that have paid their fees until the end of the year) or those that have not registered themselves as present.

These groups are:
– Students not registered as present
– Students registered to fill degree spots

Also in UEF
-Those with flexible study rights (JOO studies)
– Students with different studying rights (also known as visiting students)

Also, those open university and open university of applied sciences students that don’t have the right to pursue a degree also do not have the right to use the SYKETTÄ service.


Staff of UEF and Savonia who have a valid work contract have the right to use the SYKETTÄ services.

In addition
– Also, those receiving funding for research in UEF have the right to use the services.

All Savonia staff, that have the right to staff cards, have the right to use the services.
