Wellbeing of students

Wellbeing can have slightly different meaning for every one of us. A student's wellbeing can include for example friendship, economic livelihood or health.

The different services available at the University of Vaasa also aim to support the wellbeing of students including health, coping with studies, safety, housing and study support.

In study related matters students can meet with the university study psychologist. Students can discuss for example motivation, time management or wellbeing issues. All meetings are confidential.  You can contact study psychologist by email: ray.ohtonen(at)univaasa.fi or visit office L125 (Luotsi-building 1st floor).

The Student Union (VYY) also has a harassment contact person whose duty is to guide students who feel that they have been harassed within the academic community. Contact person is obligated by the professional secrecy. Contact email: hairintayhdyshlo(a)vyy.fi.
