PSA: You Can Withdraw Cash from Kylänvalinta

There is no ATM in the Student Village anymore. The nearest ATMs are located next to the pharmacy at Nummenmäki, at the corner of Hämeenkatu and Kiinanmyllynkatu next to K-Extra store, and near Siwa store at Verkatehtaankatu. This means that you’d have to walk for a while to reach an ATM. Considering this you might think you’ll have hard time getting cash in the Student Village, but you’d be wrong.

You can withdraw cash at Kylänvalinta store when you make an purchase with your credit or debit card. When you are about to pay your groceries, tell the cashier that you would also like to withdraw some money. They’ll add a sum of your choice to your total, and give you the cash.

This has worked for us with different kinds of debit and credit cards, so go try it out!
