Moving around at the institute and practical matters during a course

From the JHL Institute’s entrance hall reception you’ll get a visitor card with which you can move around in JHL’s central office. Those who participate in JHL’s courses will also get the HSL travel card with which they can travel by public transport. Travel cards are personal and you should look after your card well. If you lose the card, you will not get a new one. You can also borrow a bicycle from the institute.

Participants of JHL’s courses should save the receipts of self-paid costs related to the arrival journey, because the receipts have to be attached to the travel bill.


The JHL Institute and the hotel offer a storage facility for luggage.

Meal breaks

The JHL Institute has a free-of-charge coffee machine in the circle on the third floor, no breakfast is served.

During the course, participants will get a diverse lunch, afternoon coffee and a dinner. All the food ingredients are lactose free. There is also a gluten-free alternative available. It is also possible for those who live in Helsinki to come to dinner.

You should notify of any food allergies and, if necessary, update them in myJHL in good time before participating in the course.

Organisation insurance is valid also during the institute’s training sessions

Did you know? Turva’s organisation insurance is valid also when you participate in the JHL Institute’s training and courses. The insurance policy is valid after you’ve left your home, workplace or holiday house, in your destination, and until you return home from your trip. Organisation insurance can compensate, say, treatment costs related to an accident or an illness that starts suddenly.

If an accident occurs to you during a JHL Institute course or training, or if you get ill, you can apply for compensation with the help of Turva’s electronic claim notification form (in Finnish).

Please note that organisation insurance is not valid when you participate in paid training, remote training, and remote events. Furthermore, JHL’s leisure-time accident insurance does not cover the treatment costs of accidents that have occurred during remote learning at home or in a holiday house.

For more information about insurance policies for members, visit (in Finnish).

If you get ill, contact Education Advice immediately by e-mail ( Alternatively, contact your employer (local courses).
