Sports tutors

CampusSport’s sports tutors are volunteer peer exercisers who encourage the students and staff members of the universities in Turku to exercise more. Tutors organise events and excursions. They also work as sports buddies which means that they can support you in your exercising endeavors by for example coming to an instructed class with you. You can also ask a tutor to present our gyms or sports halls to you. For more information, please visit the page Tutors.
