Student Wellbeing Working Group promotes the well-being and studying abilities of students as well as the consideration of students as members of the university community. The Working Group comprehensively processes matters pertaining to students’ wellbeing, studying abilities, financial situations, living and communality, as well as to the guidance and progress of their studies. The Working Group also acts as a link and a coordinator between the work of different operators that promote the well-being of students. In addition to the Student Union, different operators of the University, the FSHS and the united parishes of the city of Oulu are represented in the multi-professional group. The Working Group holds meetings approx. once a month.

Four members and four deputy members are selected to the working group for a two-year term. OYY’s Specialist in Social Affairs is entitled to attend and speak in the meetings and supports the student representatives in their work. Participation in the working group is voluntary work and does not award the participants study credits.

The Board of OYY appoints the student representatives in December of 2021, and the representatives’ term begins in January of 2022. Eligible for the position are all students who have submitted their application by the deadline of the application process and are registered as attending by 31 November, 2021.
