Not only students but also the big public can go there and eat. You can check the daily menu's online and choose from many locations. Vegan options are clearly marked and available in many of their outlets. You can have a nice peek into Finnish student life and see how they are pampered compared to many other countries. Not junk food but healthy casual food for good price.
You order the portion from the counter and pay for it. After that you can take as much salad and bread as you want. There are also vegan spreads available.
They serve you in English as well.

Pros: daily menu's online , many locations , good prices
Cons: no gourmet options

If you like "industrial" food

Cheap price, for students real cheap and for others little cheaper than normal, but not really proper restaurant. If food is just energy go here, if you want to enjoy your food go some other place.

Pros: cheap
Cons: industrial food

Some tips

http://www.unicafe.fi/en Here you can find the menu of the day in English and addresses of all the unicafe restaurants.

During summers most of the Unicafes are closed but in the city center Unicafes called 'Ylioppilasaukio' and 'Porthania' are open. Ylioppilasaukio is the only unicafe open on saturdays.

And the price: 5,65€ for lunch. Not too bad in Helsinki.

Note they also label what is vegan and there are many throughout Helsinki.

Good food, easy on the budget.

A good value in an expensive city

We ate lunch only once here. We had the vegan tofu and vegetable casserole, and it was really good. The place has a cafeteria-style set up and appeals to lots of college students. You have to bus your own dishes when done. Even though Helsinki is rather compact, if you have trouble finding Unicafe on a map of the city, ask one of the many tourist helpers for assistance.

Pros: great food, good value
Cons: limited hours, can be hard to find
