About us

Turun korkeakoulujen reserviläiset ry, abbreviated as TuKoRes (freely translated as ‘Reserve Association for Students in Turku’), is an organization for tertiary-level students in Turku who are keen on national defense and maintaining the necessary skills and fitness for service. We arrange weekly pistol shooting sessions, sporting events, visits to places of national defense significance, and a weekly sauna gathering.


TuKoRes is a member association of the Finnish Reserve Officers’ Federation (FROF), which is the national organization for 290 member associations and over 28,000 members. TuKoRes also operates as a sub-organization within the Student Unions of both the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi. Additionally, TuKoRes is recognized as a partner association within the Student Union of Turku University of Applied Sciences.


Considering the intrinsic nature of our activities and the integral connections to national defense, TuKoRes extends its membership exclusively to Finnish citizens.

We genuinely appreciate your expressed interest in our organization.
