About us


What is Orbis?

Orbis is a student organization aimed at international and internationally-minded students in the Faculties of Arts and Theology at the University of Helsinki.

We introduce the new international students to student life, provide opportunities for internationals and Finns alike to meet and network; promote and protect international interests especially within the faculties, but also more generally at the university and Finland; and keep international and Finnish students informed about international issues at the Faculties, university and Finland. 

We organize events such as museum visits, parties, excursions, and casual hangouts. Everyone is welcome along and we are always open to activity suggestions!

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep updated on our meetings and events. And if you have any questions or queries, you can email us!  


The membership fee is 5€ and covers life-long membership. Please sign up through our form
