Students, enjoy affordable cultural events again this year!

HYY and Lyyra have once again gathered cultural discounts offered to students in the metropolitan area. Information in the booklet Carpe culturam! – student’s cultural discounts 2011–2012 has been updated from last year and it is now even more comprehensive – more than 150 cultural operators are already involved! You can get your own booklet and enjoy inexpensive cultural experiences: the booklet is available from HYY’s central office and the distribution points of year tags on all four campuses. The information in the booklet can also be found on HYY’s website at and Lyyra’s website.

Diverse cultural interests during the study years are an important part of becoming a smart and educated person. Many operators in the wide cultural field of the metropolitan area occasionally offer significant student discounts. However, this information does not always reach students who are interested in culture and they might miss affordable concerts, free museum days and affordable tickets. HYY and Lyyra want to help students with this problem.

We encourage everyone to participate and make the student’s cultural discount package even more comprehensive: any new or missing student discounts and changed information may be forwarded to HYY’s Secretary for Cultural Affairs (kulttuurisihteeri(at) If you have any feedback about the lack of student discounts, please get in touch with cultural organisers. HYY and Lyyra wish inspiring cultural experiences for all students!
