Vare is a student organization for archaeology students at the University of Turku. It functions both as a bridge between the students and archaeology hobbyists as well as a guardian of the students’ interests in the Department of Archaeology, TYY (Turku University Student Union), and the University.

Vare organizes all kinds of events from seminars to field trips and holds weekly meetings for its members and associates. Weekly meetings (during semesters) are on Wednesdays 12:00-13:00 in the first floor breakroom of the Department of Archaeology in Geotalo (Akatemiankatu 1) and on Fridays from 19:00 onward at Cosmic Comic Cafe (Forum shopping center, Kauppiaskatu 4). These meetings are currently on hold due to the ongoing pandemic.
