There are dozens of different kinds of organisations operating in the region of TTYY: guilds, vocational clubs, international clubs and leisure clubs. In addition, there are several sports clubs operating within TUrVoKe ry, the teekkari sports club.
The student union supports the activity of organisations with various kinds of grants, by organising club rooms and other tools and assisting in problematic situations like rule amendments and insurance issues. This site offers comprehensive Organization guide as well as hints and tips on how to found an organisation and amend rules.
How to establish a new club?
Contact the organisation sector (jarjestot(at)ttyy.fi) and discuss your idea. Make sure that similar club doesn’t already exist in TUT. It is advisable to formulate the rules of the club together with the organisation sector in order for them to be compatible with the Finnish Patent and Registration Office.
The club is founded in a constitutive meeting, where all interested persons gather and approve the rules. If you wish to establish a registered association, you must report it to the Finnish Patent and Registration Office. The minutes of the meeting, the approved rules, the contact information of the board and the action plan of the club are then passed on to the Student Union to be finally approved by the board. After the Student Union board has accepted the club into the region of the Student Union, a cooperation contract can be signed. Approving the rules of a club takes time due to the many steps of the procedure. If you wish to found a club or change the rules of an existing club, contact the Organizational Sector as early as possible.
