Arrival and Pickup service
Pick up service & keys during the fixed Arrival dates
At both campuses a group of tutors, (in Helsinki called the Exchange Committee, EC), acts within the Student Union of Hanken as a support group for exchange students. One important task is to pick you up at the airport /harbour/railway or bus station if you will ask for pickup in in the online system. To make it possible for the Hanken to arrange the pickup service efficiently, you must upload you Arrival data in Mobility online by 1 August/1 December and mark if you want/do not want a tutor to pick you up upon arrival.
If you will arrive during the two fixed arrival dates and have requested a tutor this guarantees that a tutor will meet you, will have the key to your apartment and will take you there.The tutors will pick you up almost around the clock during these two dates. Please note there will be no pickup during the night between 1 am and 7 am. If you arrive at the airport during the night hours (Helsinki/Vantaa airport) you will have to book a room at a hotel/hostel close to the airport or wait at the airport until the morning 7 am when a tutor will pick you up.
Arrival days in Helsinki Autumn 2017: Mon 21 - Tue 22 August
Arrival days in Vaasa Autumn 2017 : Tue 29 - Wed 30 August
When the pickup plan has been finalized by the tutors in August, the tutor who will meet you will contact you about the set up, e.g. the meeting point.
NB! Be sure to give us all flight (boat/train) details and your correct contact when uploading your arrival data in Mobility-Online.
Remember also to inform us about any changes in your travel plan! ANY changes AFTER the upload deadline (1 August) MUST be communicated in an e-mail to email@example.com in order to reach us and the tutors, because we print the Mobility-Online arrival report only once after the deadline.
