Send us a call request by email to kuraattorit@luc.fi. Please include only your name, phone number and field of study. 

We will call you in 5 working days. We will try to reach you couple of times.   

In the first call we will discuss about your situation and think together about the solutions that might benefit your situation. If it´s necessary, we will make an appointment with your own social worker. The appointment can be held either on campus, by phone or by video.
