Aalto University Summer School

Safety on Aalto University campus

Aalto University has opened up all facilities on campus in autumn 2021 and is welcoming students from all over the world. All summer courses by Aalto University Summer School will be held on campus in 2022. Here you will find updated information about the current travel regulations to Finland and how Aalto University prevents the spread of the coronavirus on campus.

Updated 2.11.2021. Finland has taken adequate measures to prevent the local spread of the coronavirus and has therefore managed to keep the pandemic in check effectively. The number of coronavirus-related deaths equals 0.02% of the total Finnish population. The only country with a lower mortality rate is Iceland (0.01%).

By the end of October 2021, 85% of the target population (aged 12 or over) had received at least the first vaccine dose in Finland, and 78% had received two vaccine doses. We hope that as many members of the Aalto community as possible will protect themselves and others by taking the vaccine.

Safety on Aalto University campus

Aalto University opened up campus in September 2021, and our facilities are finally filled with students again. All spaces on campus will be open to full capacity from the end of October onwards. 

According to the latest recommendation of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, face masks may now be used at the user’s discretion. To ensure health security, we recommend that face masks should, in particular, be used in spaces and situations where a lot of people are present or where close contact cannot be avoided, or if you have not been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Remember to wash your hands regularly, avoid close contacts, and not come to campus if you are ill. It is important that we work together to maintain a healthy and safe campus for everyone.
