Membership benefits

As a TOKYO member you can get many different member benefits with TOKYO’s shiny silvery sticker. All of the TOKYO benefits, whether they be advisory or some fancy discounts, belong also to alumni- and supporting members.

 The greatest of TOKYO’s membership benefits is love. It may sound a bit cheesy, but it’s still true. Student advocacy and the well-being of our members and ARTS in general are the main purposes of TOKYO’s existence. TOKYO is in between. It has more authority than the other student organizations of ARTS; however, it’s much closer to the everyday lives of our students than AYY. The more we have members, the more we have voice and resources. By joining TOKYO you’ll be supporting the greater good for our school.

♡ TOKYO’s design-calendar is probably the most popular member benefit of ours. The calendar is published yearly and it’s valid from August till next year’s September. The designer of each year’s calendar is selected with a competition. In 2018 and 2019 the calendar was done with co-operation with AYY.

♡ As a TOKYO member you can take an insurance for accidents, valid  1.10. – 30.9. yearly. The insurance costs 15 euro/year. You can take the insurance from TOKYO’s office.
