Tapio Hautamäki has been elected as the President of the National Union of University Students in Finland for the year of 2020. The ongoing general assembly in Lahti voted on the issue on Friday.

“It is a great honour to have the opportunity to lead the student movement next year. SYL has an important role as the voice of the young generation in society. Next year, we have a great opportunity to bring this movement together and clarify our vision of a better tomorrow for students as the new decade begins,” says Hautamäki.

This year, Hautamäki serves as the Chair of Aalto University Student Union Board. Previously, Hautamäki has served as Vice Chair of the AYY Board being responsible for renewing AYY’s strategy and political policy paper. In 2020, SYL will also renew its own strategy. 

The general assembly elects the SYL Board and decides on the operations of 2020 on Saturday, tomorrow. The National Union of University Students in Finland represents more than 130,000 university students. The union has an impact on educational, social and international issues at a national level.

Government cuts put a stop to the construction of student housing

We are shocked by the recent cuts of the Finnish Government which put student housing and its construction at stake. In its session on spending limits, the Government made significant cuts to the special group investment grants for student housing construction, which makes the commencement of already planned housing projects in the capital region uncertain and complicates the housing situation for students as well as the housing activities of the Aalto University Student Union (AYY).
