The personnel newsletter compiles current content published on the Aalto.fi website into a news digest, which you can easily read also on your smart devices. From the letter, you can see at a glance both news and highlights common to all Aalto employees as well as current news of your own school.
As an Aalto employee, you will automatically receive the personnel newsletter* in your e-mail.
The letter is sent to everyone in English. You can read the letter in Finnish by clicking on the Uutiskirje suomeksi link in the upper right corner of the letter. The majority of the content is for Aalto community only, so please remember to log in with your Aalto ID. The newsletter is published and edited by Aalto University Communications.

Newsletter schedule, autumn 2023
The letter is published on Thursdays biweekly. In August 2023, newsletter production will be transferred to another platform that is already in use at Aalto (Salesforce). The aim is to achieve synergies and learning through a widely shared technology. Due to transfer, the first letter of the autumn term will be published on 31 August. Other dates are 14.9., 28.9., 12.10., 26.10., 9.11., 23.11., 7.12., and 20.12. Note that this is the plan, but changes are possible.
The content for the letter is always published in advance online, so, as an Aalto employee, you can influence the content of the letter by producing news and event content for the Aalto.fi website. Please contact Aalto Communications if you need rights to content production: [email protected].
In the main navigation - also known as a "hamburger" navigation -, all internal and external news and events can be found under News and Events.
Frequently asked questions about the personnel newsletter
The letter is sent in English for all, and the link to the Finnish version is there on the top of the letter. This way we can help our international staff to access both the newsletter content as well as other current content on Aalto.fi more easily.
The newsletter does not collect information about individual readers. Data is only collected on newsletter opening volumes. Information about the clicked contents is collected as part of the analytics of the Aalto.fi website. An individual user cannot be identified from the collected information.
The newsletter is sent by e-mail to one address for the whole personnel and to another one of Aalto emeriti professors. The recipient information in the addresses is automatically updated from the university's personnel information system. Thus, mailing lists are not managed manually and one cannot unsubscribe the letter. The employee's email address will be removed from the list at the end of the employment.
You can send feedback by e-mail to Aalto University Communications: [email protected].
