Social life and recreation

Having social networks helps you feel at home! Aalto University organises many events and other possibilities for international staff and their families to meet and mingle and thus hopefully settle in smoothly: Aalto Club- trips and Experiencing Finland- events have become popular due to their casual and relaxed form. In addition, we have collected additional external tips and links for you to find the most suitable way to socialise and to find nice things to do.
