Regardless of the small size, Kajaani has everything you need for your everyday life and even a little bit more on top of that. From the many services in the city, there is a possibility for student discount!

In Finland the emergency number is 112. Calling this number will connect you with the local police, ambulance and fire departments. The Emergency Center recommends that you download the 112 -app, which can be found on the App Store and Google Play. When calling from this app, the Emergency Center is immediately provided with your exact location to ensure your safety.

Typically, grocery stores are open until 10:00pm each day, with a few exceptions, for example, on Sundays or public holidays. The nearest grocery stores to our campus area include Lidl (approx. 1km), K-Market Louhikatu and Tokmanni on Kasarminkatu. There are also two larger Supermarkets closer to the city center such as K-Citymarket on Pohjolankatu and Prisma on Veturitie. Pharmacies can be found in Prisma, on Kauppakatu and slightly further on Soidinkatu.

Please note that for example alcohol is allowed to sell by stores only between 9am and 9pm!
