JAMKO's gym

JAMKO’s members can break a sweat at JAMKO’s gym for free. The gym is located on the Rajakatu main campus in the basement of D-wing, room DK25. The gym is only for JAMKO’s members so make sure you have your valid student card with you!

Use of gym and sports hall lockers. You will need your own lock to use on the lockers. The lockers are only for short term use and available during the workout only.  JAMKO retains the right to break the lock and empty the content if the lockers are misused.

Study path students can also use our gym for free with a study certificate. You can download your study certificate from the Atomi service in Peppi. Please have a valid ID and your study certificate (either physical or electronic copy) with you at the gym, so that your right to use the gym can be checked if needed.
