Otaniemi campus to develop into a lively neighbourhood
By 2021, all of the University's core functions will be in Otaniemi, home of the lively community that supports innovations. The goal of campus development is to mix valuable history and new ways of planning.
Otaniemi, a crown jewel of Finnish architecture
A parkland-style campus established in the 1950s forms the core of Otaniemi. The overall vision of the campus was that of Alvar Aalto, and its individual buildings were designed by Aalto and other celebrated Finnish architects such as Reima and Raili Pietilä and Heikki and Kaija Sirén.
Aalto University's locations
Aalto University has premises in two campuses in the Greater Helsinki region: the Otaniemi main campus and the Töölö campus. The current acitvities in Töölö will relocate to Otaniemi in February 2019. Aalto operates one of its study options, the Bachelors' Programme in International Business BScBA, in the town of Mikkeli, around 200 kilometres from Helsinki.
This is how Otaniemi grew into a centre of technology, business and art
The first hub of world class research, a pioneer of modern architecture, the stage for the CSCE and the home of Finland’s first satellite - Otaniemi’s Aalto campus has a colourful history. Next the campus will become Aalto University’s joint campus and an open community for all.
A campus geared for sustainable development
The key environmental impacts of campuses are related to energy consumption, transport and recycling. A campus operating in line with the principles of sustainable development is a key part of the University's campus strategy.
Aalto University campus journal
The campus development journal examines eg. what Otaniemi looks like in 2050, how to add more green to the campus as well as how a startup ecosystem works.
