Purchase of earplugs 

The university places a joint order of earplugs once a year. Students can sign up for the joint order in August-September.

All first-year students are entitled to:  

  • standard earplugs (HiFi or “musician’s” earplugs) paid by the university   
  • Or personal custom-moulded earplugs for €130, when the joint university-level order is placed in September-October (the university pays €20 of the price).  

Joint order of earplugs as a first-year student

The joint order for hearing protection gear is placed in September. Advance information on the order is provided in the newsfeed on the student.uniarts.fi frontpage, in Tuudo and in newsletters.   

On 10.10.2023 from 9 am to 4 pm, an event will be organized in room S3101 of the Musiikkitalo where measurements are taken and an impression of their ears for custom-made earplugs have been made.   

Order of earplugs later in studies

After the first year of studies, students can purchase custom-moulded earplugs for the price of €150. The price is lower for first-year students, because due to budget reasons, the university can only sponsor the purchase of earplugs for new students.  

Uniarts Helsinki’s Hearing Protection Policy

Uniarts Helsinki has compiled a Hearing Protection Policy that describes the nature of noise exposure produced as part of the university’s operations and the causes for exceeding recognised safety levels. The policy also defines methods and practical tips for reducing noise exposure and the schedule for the required measures.
