KAMK's student union called KAMO, can offer a welcoming service for all new students arriving to Kajaani from abroad. The student union KAMO can arrange a taxi and accommodation keys ready for the incoming students if agreed mutually two weeks before the arrival. The students will have to pay for the taxi themselves, it will cost approx. 15 - 40 euros / person depending on the arrival place and the location of the accommodation. Depending to the address of your accommodation, the taxi will take you directly to the address of the accommodation, and a tutoring student will be welcoming you by the accommodation with your room keys (available only for Ketunpolku apartments) or first to the campus to meet the tutoring student and get you apartment keys and then to your accommodation.
