Campus bikes and cycling

On the Otaniemi campus you can find campus bikes for the use of Aalto personnel, carrier bikes for personnel and all student events, HRT city bikes as well as bike maintenance points. The mode of transport has a significant impact on the environment and Aalto strives to offer the most sustainable way of transport between campuses and within. Aalto and ACRE cooperate with HRT and nearby cities.

Carrier bikes

Carrier bikes can be borrowed by Aalto personnel and all student events on Otaniemi campus.

Borrowing carrier bikes:

  • From Dipoli, Otakaari 24, lobby ([email protected]) against signature. From the lobby you will receive the key of the bike, a helmet and a pump if needed. You can  borrow the bike for more than one day, but remember to mention this when borrowing the bike, and also ensure the proper locking of the bike.
  • From Väre, Otaniementie 14, lobby against signature (keys, helmet, rain jacket and a pump if needed)

The carrier bikes are in use from spring to fall, and stored during winter.

City bikes

Otaniemi also has its own city bike stations. Check the city bike website for more information about the service:

Bike maintenance points

At these self-service work stands anyone can maintain a bike for free!

Aalto University has bought two fixed BFIX work stands. The maintenance points contain the equipment necessary for servicing a bicycle – pump station, maintenance stand and toolkit, and a QR code to a mobile guide. Using the work stand is free to anyone using a bike. The locations for the maintenance points are Otakaari 27 (A Blanc) and Korkeakoulunaukio (in front of A Bloc).

Shower facilities and dressing rooms

In the campus buildings, there are various shower and dressing room facilities for commuting cyclists. For personnel, you can find most of the showers from digital campus map on ACRE's website. For updated information, please ask talovastaava or receptionist.

For students there are shower facilities in Väre (G section, 0 floor) and in Otakaari 1 (A section, K floor). Those are also marked on campus map. It is not always possible to reserve lockers, so please be prepared to carry a change of clothes and other items with you.

Unisport's shower facilities can be used by showing a staff or student card. See the link for Unisport's opening hours. The lockers in the Unisport premises can be used to store things while showering, but not for daytime storage.
