Zero Tolerance of Substance Abuse

In Finland, smoking is prohibited indoors in public facilities by law. Savonia is a smoke-free university where smoking is allowed only in designated outdoor locations.
Savonia will not tolerate any substance abuse. We have a counselling model that aims to intervene in substance abuse as soon as possible so that a student receives best possible support in his/her situation.

Substance abuse program in Savonia UAS is a part of the work, which is done to maintain the student’s wellbeign and ability to study. This program is our communal effort to take a responsibility for each other.
