The Living+ Hub is a physical place at the Aalto University campus in Espoo. It offers space and technology to support educational and research activities and societal networking. Different kinds of events such as lectures, seminars and big room meetings are organized in the hub.

Aalto Networking Platform maintains the hub in a close collaboration with Aalto University Campus & Real Estate. Furthermore, the platform collaborates intensely with the Aalto Built Environment Laboratory and the Urban Academy.


The renewed hub features a big meeting space with a multimedia screen designed and developed to enable easy co-creative planning of three-dimensional space, such as urban landscapes and other human-centered environments. The hub also has an open space for mingling, a co-working space, lecture halls and meeting rooms of varying size. The co-working space can be used for free by Aalto researchers, whereas others conducting research and work related to human-centered environments can rent an office table in the co-working space for a monthly fee.
