Student Union KAMO

KAMO is the student union of our University of Applied Sciences. It is a non-profit-making association, which looks after the interests of KAMKstudents. KAMO tries to bring colour into student-life through its activities. KAMO also decides on the use of the students’ prescribed right to speak.

Cooperation with KAMK is close. KAMO has two representatives on the board of governors of the UAS and three representatives on the student grants committee for students. In addition, there are student members in various teams within the Kajaani University of Applied Sciences. 


A Variety of Activities

KAMO organises numerous events during the academic year, including outdoor recreation days and social evenings. The main activities are maintained by offering commercial services. KAMO provides services for students at discount prices and they are readily available. There is a kiosk both in the Taito 1 and Taito 2 buildings where textbooks, study materials and copying services can be bought.

Students can join the student union by ordering a student card from KAMO. Members of student union receive different kinds of benefits and discounts in various places such as restaurants, shops, hairdressers, events, movies, swimming etc. Also, the KAMO student card entitles students to a 50 % discount in trains and buses when travelling in Finland.
