Advance booking of facilities for the fall of 2023

AYY’s associations have the right to book rental saunas, event venues and meeting rooms in advance. Each association category has their own schedule for making reservations. On this page, you will find schedules and practical instructions for the booking of facilities for the fall of 2023.

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 and users can log in with their Aalto user ID. Check out the rental facilities here.

The first booking round is for the Subject associations and the second one for other associations.

In this booking round, you can book facilities for the period 7th Aug 2023 - 7th Jan 2024

In the system, the booking schedule for facilities is as follows:

  1. Subject associations
    The booking time starts at 12noon on April 13th and ends at 12noon on April 20th. Advance booking sessions will be held on April 20th at 4.30pm at Otakaari 1, M232, M1. Please be prepared to negotiate possible double bookings in Advance booking sessions. If the representative of an association is not present to stand up for the booking, the booking will be deleted from the calendar. Please note that you cannot book recreational facilities: Multi-Facility Hall, Tatami Hall or Association Room until the second booking round together with other associations.*
  2. Other associations
    The booking time starts at 12noon on May 3rd and ends at 12noon on May 10th. Advance booking sessions will be held on May 10th at 4.30pm at Otakaari 1, M232 M1. Please be prepared to negotiate possible double bookings in Advance booking sessions. If the representative of an association is not present to stand up for the booking, the booking will be deleted from the calendar. This session is also for subject associations, if you have booked recreational facilities.*
  3. Members
    After the advance booking round, the booking calendar will be opened to other bookers on May 15th or when all the overlapping bookings have been settled.

*Important note! Reservations for three recreational facilities (Multi-Facility HallTatami Hall Association Room) cannot be made until the second booking round starting on May 3rd. For these facilities, associations must be prepared to clarify double bookings in Advance booking session on May 10th at 4.30pm. This applies to all subject associations and other associations.  The purpose is to guarantee all associations more equal opportunities to book these highly popular free facilities.

Booking rights of associations

Instructions for making reservations: 

  • 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.
  • Only one association books the facility, if you book a space for a joint event of several associations. Write the other organizers in the event details. This speeds up the process of booking, while avoiding unnecessary settlings in the advance booking sessions. When the calendar does not report any overlaps, the joint event can be accepted directly.
  • 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.
  • Only book facilities according to actual need. The facilities are used by many associations who have a need for facilities. Especially Smökki and Rantasauna are wanted.
  • Bear in mind the usage hours of rental facilities and contact the services office asap if you change your planned event times.
  • If possible, please avoid booking Smökki on Mondays and Tuesdays: PO has rehearsals at Smökki every Monday evening and RWBK every Tuesday evening.
  • Check out the price list and the terms of usage (e.g. time restrictions, age limits of the person in charge, cleaning and checklists).
  • If you would like to receive a notification of your approved or upcoming bookings, you can change your notification settings in TILA system via Personal information -> Notification settings.
  • Please also remember to cancel your booking well in advance if you no longer need the facilities.
  • 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. If necessary, we will contact the bookers at the end of the booking round.
  • If your event requires special arrangements, please contact AYY's services in advance to find out whether the arrangements in question are possible in the space you have booked.

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: [email protected]

We demand decision-makers to show backbone and eradicate racism

Student unions AYY, HYY, ISYY, JYY, SHS, TYY, TREY, VYY, ÅAS, OYY, LTKY and ArtSU are dismayed at the state of the ongoing racism debate in society and demand concrete measures to eradicate racism. Racist statements made by people in high places have shown what is wrong with racism debate: people targeted by racism are not listened to, racist comments are diminished or taken as a joke, and the debate gets sidetracked. We need anti-racist actions, understanding and solidarity.
