Overall culture first originated in Sweden and found its way to University of Vaasa and TKK in Otaniemi in the 1980s. The use of overalls quickly grew popular in colleges and universities all over. The different coverall colors and color combinations represent different subjects and fields of study.
 
UIO’s orange and white “Kinder” overalls are worn by all engineering & tech students.
 
The cost of UIO overalls is 45€ for non-members and 15€ for members.
