Aalto Space mobile application

It can be challenging to find unreserved rooms for studying, group work or conferences on the campus. Aalto Space makes finding and booking facilities easy for all users of the campus’ facilities.

Aalto Space is a mobile application for Android and iOS devices. It helps the user navigate the Aalto University campus and allows them to book facilities for studying and group work. Aalto Space’s conference room booking functionality is piloted by the University’s personnel and business users.

The application also provides an excellent means of communication between the University and students: Aalto Space has an emergency messaging feature with which Aalto Communications can send notifications about various exceptional situations on the campus.

You can download the application from Apple App Store- or Google Play.

Aalto Space can also be used with a browser: https://booking.aalto.fi/aaltospace/

Range of buildings and facilities

The application’s range of buildings and facilities will increase during 2019 as several new buildings and coworking facilities located on the Otaniemi campus will be made available in the application. Aalto Space is already in use in eight properties: the Undergraduate Centre, the Harald Herlin Learning Centre, A Grid, Dipoli, the School of Business building, Maarintie 8, the Computer Science Building and the Väre building.

The application’s map allows you to easily find also those teaching facilities in the building that are not included in the booking system. The application’s developers intend to continue increasing the number of campus buildings in the application and to develop new functionalities with the help of user feedback.

Taking the application in use 

Currently, the application identifies users through phone numbers. The users are divided into four user groups: visitors, students, personnel, and business and campus users. The user group determines the range of available facilities, the duration and maximum number of facility reservations and the time window of advance reservations.  

Please read the application’s terms and conditions.

In order to ensure the best user experience, users must have reported their current phone number to Aalto University.  

Average number of users: 500 daily, 1 500 weekly and 3 000 monthly. 

By 31 May 2019, the application had been downloaded 12 189 times. 

Development: Kisko Labs, CORPI, Nimble Devices, ASIO in co-operation with Aalto University Campus & Real Estate and Aalto University IT Services
