HAMKO organizes annually the following events:

  • Alkupamaus celebaring the beginning of the academic year.
  • Café Appro, a tour around cafés
  • Hämeenlinnan Appro in co-operation with student associations HIOP ry and HÄTÄ ry.
  • Loppurysäys celebrating spring and the end of the academic year.

We also participate in events of other actors, such as the Sports and Culture Appro by HAMK Moves. Sports and Culture Appro was organized for the first time in the autumn of 2019.

In addition, the recruitment and career event for students, SUUNTA, is an event organized by HAMKO.

In addition, local student associations on HAMK campuses are active in organizing all kinds of events for students and you’ll find their events from our website’s event calendar, too.

You will get stamps to your Student Culture Pass by participating events. With 10 stamps you get an overall patch and take part in a raffle!
