Advance booking of facilities in a nutshell

The advance booking of rental facilities is one of the benefits of AYY’s associations. Reservations are made using AYY’s own booking system, TILA. TILA can be found at tila.ayy.fi/ and users can log in with their Aalto user ID. Check out the rental facilities herePlease also consider other associations when booking. Only book facilities according to your actual needs.

Unlike in the previous booking rounds, advance booking sessions are not organised physically. Associations must be prepared to negotiate possible double bookings via email immediately after the booking round.

Please note that all rental facilities are not currently in use due to the coronavirus pandemic. We cannot predict what the situation will be in the autumn, that is why there may be changes on the maximum number of people in the facilities and safety guidelines during the booking period. Associations must follow safety regulations imposed by the authorities. The AYY Board reviews the situation on a regular basis and updates AYY’s coronavirus release according to the latest guidelines.

Please nore! New housing rules and regulations on AYY properties have effect on the user hours of rental facilities. Quiet hours start one hour earlier: already at 10pm on weekdays and at 11pm on weekends in facilities located in residential buildings. Please check the new user hours and more specific information in the news.

Instructions for making reservations: 

  • In the advance booking session, facilities are reserved under the name of the association. The activation key has been sent to the e-mail address provided by the associations (generally this has been the list address of the association board). If necessary, persons who have taken care of the facility bookings can distribute their rights through TILA system to the new board members of associations, for example.
  • The name of the event must be entered in the reservation. If there is no name, the event can be deleted if there is a need for the reserved facility for the same day at a later stage of the advance booking session.
  • Please note that AYY’s internal reservations are, in principle, permanent.
  • Bookings for annual celebration and herring breakfast by special status associations are prioritised over the reservations of other associations. Bookings made by special status associations during their booking period are confirmed after the period ends. Possible double bookings of special status associations will be clarified after the end of the first booking round. Special status associations will not have to defend their bookings later. Exceptions to this are recreational facilities (Multi-Facility Hall, Tatami Hall and Association Room), for which all associations can make reservations only from 9 Dec onwards. For these three facilities, double bookings will be clarified for all associations only after the end of the second booking round.
  • Double bookings can only be made within the period when reservations are made. After the booking period, double bookings are clarified by email according to the instructions of AYY’s Services Office and modified with AYY’s user ID.
  • In case of long booking periods or several double bookings, the representative of a group that made the reservation should be prepared to justify their booking by email. If necessary, we will contact the bookers at the end of the booking round. 
  • Please also consider other associations when making the bookings. Only book facilities according to actual need. In addition to AYY operators, the facilities are used by guilds, special status associations and other associations who have a need for facilities. If possible, please avoid booking Smökki for the following times: PO has rehearsals at Smökki every Monday at 6pm−9pm and RWBK every Tuesday at 5pm−10pm. Please avoid booking academic seated dinners and singing nights for Mondays and Tuesdays.
  • If the facility sector notices that a certain association has made too many reservations and thus significantly reduced the opportunity of other associations to benefit from AYY’s facilities, AYY reserves the right to request additional clarification or cancel the already confirmed reservations.
  • The price list can be found here.
  • You can find the terms of usage here (e.g. time restrictions, age limits of the person in charge, cleaning and checklists)
  • Would you like to receive a notification of your approved or upcoming bookings? Please also remember to cancel your booking well in advance if you no longer need the facilities.

 

NB!  Due to safety measures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, AYY reserves the right to make changes in prices, restrict the number of people in the facilities and add separate safety instructions.

If you have not received a confirmation ID for the user group you represent or if you have any questions related to the advance booking, you can contact AYY’s Services Office: ayy (a) ayy.fi 

Give feedback on booking rounds during the process or no later than 1 June 2021.  We will address development suggestions regarding the facilities during the summer.
