Changes to the autumn's events

The coronavirus is causing changes to the autumn’s events. The Board of Aalto University Student Union has decided to postpone the AYY10 Annual Ball and events of the Anniversary Week until spring 2021 and to cancel Aalto Afterparty and Otasuunnistus. The events originally planned to take place in September were, after all, expected to attract several hundreds of attendees – the Annual Ball even a thousand.

The decision was made based on the current coronavirus situation and the scale of these events.  The safety of participants and event organisers is of utmost importance to AYY. Even though the events’ safety measures were considered sufficient, there would have remained a risk of falling ill. The safety measures might also have made the events less enjoyable than usual. 

The AYY10 Annual Ball will be held on 15 May 2021. The already made registrations to the Annual Ball will remain in place without any additional measures, but you can also get a refund for your tickets if you prefer. Registration will be reopened in early 2021. The events of the Anniversary Week will take place in May 2021.

Aalto Afterparty and Otasuunnistus will not be organised as physical events. Mass events are currently not prohibited in Finland, but AYY does not want to risk anyone falling ill at an event.
