A student centre will be built as a joint meeting place for Aalto University students

Picture: Anttinen Oiva Arkkitehdit Oy

The building, to be built at the heart of the campus, will be implemented as a joint effort by student organisations and the university.

Aalto University Student Union (AYY), Aalto University Business Students (KY) and the Swedish-speaking student nation Teknologföreningen (TF) will have a long-awaited joint student centre which can be used as a meeting place and recreational premises to which every Aalto community member has a reason to come. AYY, the Foundation for Business Students in Aalto University sr, TF and Aalto University have agreed to build a student centre at the heart of the Otaniemi campus, right next to the metro station. The construction project is expected to be completed in summer 2024.

In the early stages, Aalto University will develop the building and order its construction. The student organisations will participate in the design of the building, redeeming their share of the student centre after its completion. Aalto University will lease facilities in the building for student services, for example.

AYY Board member Otto Usvajärvi: – I’m so glad we finally got the project going! This building will serve as a home for the Aalto community and bring together our numerous student organisations and student groups.

Antti Perttula, Chair of the Board of the KY Foundation: – Business students have long longed for a new home in Otaniemi. We will now we get one right at the heart of the campus, to be accomplished in the form of collaboration with the rest of the Aalto community. This is a great thing for business students and an important step in the history of KY.

Edvard Ohlström, Chair of the TF Board: – We have been planning Träffpunkt Aalto for a long time, and it is great to take the first step towards a new TF home and the living room that can be shared by the entire Aalto community. This project will create new opportunities for building synergies and communal spirit.

Marianna Bom, Chief Financial Officer at Aalto University: – The student centre, to be built in the middle of the campus, will create even better conditions for developing students’ communal spirit and supporting their well-being.  Aalto University promotes the project by taking responsibility for the development and ordering of the construction of the project at an early stage.

The building will be easily approachable, functionally flexible, supporting versatile use and energy-efficient. Indoors, we strive to achieve a workshop-like style and a relaxed atmosphere and, in technical solutions, life-cycle cost-effectiveness and ecology. The gross area of the building will be approximately 4,700 square metres.

The Student Centre will be built in a block known as the Chemist’s Block, for which an international invitation competition was arranged in 2016. The competition was won by a proposal known under the name of Nexus from Finnish architecture firm Anttinen Oiva Arkkitehdit Oy. This proposal will serve as the basis for the design of the student centre.

We are looking for Wellbeing tutors!

There are a lot of challenges students might face during their busy years of studying,  whether it was stress, study pressure, balancing volunteer work with school work, or loneliness. KY has addressed this problem with Wellbeing tutors. Wellbeing tutors are an integral part of KY’s BeWell program, which aims to create a more open and transparent environment for KY members and make the discussion about difficult topics easier.

Who is a Wellbeing tutor?

A Wellbeing tutor is someone who is there to offer peer support for fellow students. Being a Wellbeing tutor means that you are an easy to approach person, who is open to discuss and help other students with challenges they might be facing. Topics can include for example making new friends after moving from another city, combining work or volunteering and studies, or struggles with self-criticism, just to mention a few.

  • The position of a Wellbeing tutor lasts for one academic year (starting from Fall 2021) with the possibility of extending it to two years
  • Students looking for peer support can contact you via email (provided by KY), an anonymous platform (TukiNet) or via your preferred means of communication

What does being a Wellbeing tutor offer you?

From being a Wellbeing tutor:
  • You get to help your peers through your own experiences
  • You get to improve the atmosphere at Aalto Biz by sharing your own experiences and challenges with someone who is going through similar things
  • You will be a part of a task force (toimikunta) with a bunch of other motivated Wellbeing tutors
  • You will receive a MTEA (mental health first-aid) training by Mieli ry for free, which will help you both in balancing your own life as well as in facing new kinds of situations

Who can apply as a Wellbeing tutor?

We are hoping to get applications from students from different backgrounds and majors. Whether you are a mursu or finalizing your studies, you are more than welcome to apply!
If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact any of us: helmi.nuortimo@ky.fijohanna.hytonen@ky.fiminni.koivumaki@ky.fivilma.niemela@ky.fimarko.voutilainen@ky.fi
