Aalto Space mobile application
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.
Range of buildings and facilities
The application’s range of buildings and facilities covers several buildings, coworking facilities and working stations located on the Otaniemi campus.
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 developing new functionalities with the help of user feedback.
Using the application
Currently, the application identifies users through phone numbers, for personnel also Aalto ID registration. 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.
In order to ensure the best user experience, users must have reported their current phone number to Aalto University.
