University Chaplain

A university chaplain who works for both the University of Vaasa and the Vaasa University of Applied Sciences supports students and staff on the Palosaari campus. When life is tough or you otherwise need someone to talk to, do not hesitate to contact the university chaplain – regardless of your religious background.

Meetings on the Palosaari campus

The university chaplain is available:

  • On Tuesdays 13.00–15.00 in F116 in Fabriikki (Yliopistonranta 10)
  • On Wednesdays 13.00–15.00 in WA1128 at VAMK (Wolffintie 30)

We can also schedule a confidential discussion on campus, at the premises of the church or elsewhere. You can also arrange a meeting with Timo via Zoom or Teams.
