The Finnish Student Sports Federation OLL, founded 1924, is a national advocacy and service organisation working on behalf of Finnish student sports. OLL is the common representative for all Finnish students at higher education institutions. The federation engages in advocacy, support, education, research while also operating in the national and international communities on behalf of student sports.
The primary goal of OLL is to ensure that students engage in sufficient physical exercise in order to secure a healthy lifestyle and see to it that students are offered an adequate level of high quality sports services. Our mission is to promote student well-being and the sports culture of higher education institutions by acting as the foremost advocate and expert of sports in higher education. Our work supports all students regardless of the type of exercise or sport.
We pursue our goals through sports policy advocacy as well as through coordinating sports and member events. OLL also governs Finnish student elite sports, international organisation work, sports advocacy for students.
