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 / notebook is probably the most visible member benefit of ours. The book is published yearly and it’s been published by TOKYO since 1975. The designer of each year’s calendar is selected with a competition. Since 2018 the calendar /notebook has been done with co-operation with AYY.

♡ Kipsari is granting student projects together with TOKYO, every year Kipsari makes a profit. As a TOKYO member you are eligible to apply for the I ♡ Kipsari grant. The grant has been as big as 1500€!
