What’s new in summer 2017?
Hankasuo furniture storage project
The lease agreement on Aalto's Hakansuo furniture storage ended at the end of May. We arranged a recycling weekend for remaining furniture, which turned out to be a highly popular event. Read more here: http://aaltocre.fi/suuri-suosio-aallon-kalustekierratyspaivalle/ (only in Finnish).
Renting projects on the campus
The Fat Lizard microbrewery is the latest addition to the campus (http://aaltocre.fi/en/fat-lizard-brewing-company-move-production-facilities-otaniemi/). At the beginning of June, we also announced that Alko will open a store at the Metro Centre (http://aaltocre.fi/en/long-wait-alko-opens-liquor-store-otaniemi/).
The School as a Service concept is proceeding on the campus as planned. Next autumn, Pohjois-Tapiola upper secondary school will move to Maarintie 6 (Open Innovation House), and basic and early education services will open later, at Lämpömiehenkuja 2.
The university's shared services will move to Dipoli, starting from the beginning of August. The Dipoli opening ceremony will be held on xx [month]. A few photos of the magnificent new main building are shown below (click to enlarge images):

Follow our website and social media pages to be the first to hear about the new partners and service providers that are moving to the campus.
Research and development projects
We will continue to conduct Leesman surveys at schools about to move in the near future. The aim of the survey is to identify the suitability of the current facilities of each unit for education and work, and to apply the results to the design of new facilities. Every school will independently agree upon the publication of their survey results.
What is Aalto CRE?
Aalto University Campus & Real Estate maintains, develops and rents out Aalto University premises at Otaniemi and Töölö. We provide various user services, and act as a link between property service providers and tenants.
We develop the Otaniemi campus in phases in a financially, socially and ecologically sustainable way. Transformation in the area can be physically seen as various construction, renovation and modification projects. We carry out the university’s space use policies, and bring together the best operators to create a multifunctional, cross-disciplinary campus. We use shared spaces to enable interaction and the creation of new, internationally significant ideas. We also rent and build shared spaces to third parties outside of the university in order for stakeholders to work with the university and each other.
