Arrival at the Lappeenranta campus 

All international students are asked to send their arrival information (name, mobile phone number, arrival date and time, and means of transportation) to LUT Student Services no later than three weeks before the date of arrival. For this purpose, you will receive an arrival information form by e-mail during the summer. 

If you arrive in Lappeenranta on suggested arrival days starting from 25th of August, you will be met by an LUT driver who will give you your LOAS apartment key and drive you to your LOAS apartment to meet your tutor – a senior LUT student. 

Please note that to get a tutor, pick-up service (LUT Driver Service) and your apartment key upon arrival, you need to give LOAS permission to give your LOAS address and key to LUT. LOAS will ask for permission during the accommodation application process. 

The LUT driver service will be available from 22nd of August to 4th of September between 8:00 in the morning and 24:00 midnight. 

LUT tutors are available at your arrival mostly starting from 25th of August. Your tutor will help you with practical matters during your first days in Lappeenranta and at LUT. You will receive your tutor’s contact information by e-mail in around mid-August before your departure for Finland. 

For the driver and the tutor to be able to meet you in Lappeenranta, you will need to submit your arrival details well in advance. If you will be driving your own car to Lappeenranta or will not be living in LOAS housing, no pick-up service will be available, and your tutor will meet you at the university at a mutually agreed time. 

The pick-up service is offered only to students arriving from outside of Finland. Students from within Finland collect their keys from LOAS and arrange their own transportation to their apartment.

If you have any questions concerning your arrival, please contact LUT Student Services at arrival@lut.fi(external site, link opens a new tab).
