Arriving to Vaasa

We highly recommend the international students to arrive to Vaasa during weekdays (Mon – Fri). Please note, that VAMK does not have any own dormitories or reception after 3 p.m. 

Arriving to Vaasa is easy by car, train, bus or plane. Vaasa Railway Station and Vaasa Bus Station are located right next to each other in the city center. Vaasa Airport is located about 9 kilometers from the center of Vaasa. During the times that flights are scheduled to arrive, taxis are usually on call in front of the terminal. You can also pre-order a taxi before your arrival. You'll find more information about ordering a taxi here.

Local buses run from the airport to the center between 6.20 and 21.20 on weekdays. You'll find the timetables here.

The campus area of Palosaari is known for being the most beautiful campus in Finland! From the city center, you can either walk to the campus in approximately 20 minutes or take bus number 1, 3 or the campus line 14. Bus timetables are available here.
