Saunas to reopen on 1 Mar 2023

Contrary to the previous decision, Aalto University Student Union decided to reopen saunas in rental facilities and to continue residents’ sauna reservations already on 1 Mar.

On 1 Mar 2023, saunas in the rental facilities of Aalto University Student Union will reopen and the residents’ sauna reservations will continue as usual. Previously, AYY decided to close the saunas for energy saving and cost reasons from 1 Jan to 31 Mar 2023. The previous decision was based on the uncertainty about the adequacy of electricity during a potentially cold and windless winter. In addition, a cold winter could have significantly increased the upkeep costs. 

However, early winter 2023 was mild, and the worst scenarios of the increase in electricity prices did not happen, which is why AYY decided to review the decision. Saunas in rental facilities will reopen and the residents’ sauna reservations will be available as usual from 1 Mar 2023 onwards.

The change does not affect the current reservations and prices, and those who have booked rental facilities for March can use the saunas if they wish. The residents can start to use their previously made sauna reservations, or cancel their reservation for March.

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.
