Starting kits:

We offer a lending service for household equipment for all international students at the City Center Campus. There are two different sets that can be borrowed, Kitchen Set and Bedroom Set. The contents of the kits can be found here: https://esnfint.org/content/starting-kits-service

NOTE that we have only about 20 Bedroom Sets and therefore cannot promise everyone will get one. Kitchen Sets we have enough for everyone who needs one. The Bedroom Sets will be given out by first comes, first served basis, this means you cannot reserve a kit beforehand. 

In order to rent the starting kits, you first need to become a member of ESN FINT. This will be done at the clubroom when you pick up the kit. The procedure will be as follows:

  1. Show us a proof that you are a student or an intern in the Tampere region. This can be, for example, a letter of acceptance.
  2. Pay the 8€ membership fee by card.
  3. Pay the 5€ service fee and 20€ deposit per kit by cash. We only accept cash for this, as the deposit will be returned to you when you return the kits.

Due to the corona pandemic, you will likely be in a self-quarantine for the first days upon arrival. It’s still possible for you to rent the kits, but we ask you to be extra careful and make sure that you follow the safety guidelines:

  • Please keep at least a 2 meter distance to other people. We will make this possible by limiting the number of people that can be in the room at the same time.
  • Remember to wear a mask and take care of proper hand hygiene.
  • If you have any symptoms, please do not come pick up the kits by yourself. You can ask your friend to pick up the kits for you, and they can also register you as a member, provided they can show us proof that you are a student in the Tampere region.

The clubroom can be hard to find. It is located on the Tampere University city center campus in the main building. The room is in the C-wing. The room number is C07b. After 19 o'clock you can only enter through the outside door which is behind the parking lot. See the image below.
