Top-up cards in general
In the PaperCut system value or credit is associated with your user ID. Note: Metropolia balance and HSL card balance are two different things.
You can buy credit online using a Finnish netbank ID. Instructions here. If you do not have a netbank ID, you can buy top-up cards from Metropolia libraries (except Aralis common library).
Starting from year 2023 you cannot buy top-up cards from Karamalmi common library.

Returning credit / Selling credit
You must take care of you balance at the end of your studies. We recommend that you sell the remaining credit to other students.
Metropolia does not refund a credit balance less than 10€. If you have a lot of credit, it can be refunded to you. A three euro handling fee will be deducted from the refunded credit.
