The opening of AYY’s Museum of Student Life was celebrated on 4 Sept. The museum, located in the basement of Jämeräntaival 3 A in Otaniemi, has been closed for a long period of time due to renovation and renewal. The museum was previously known as the Polytechnical Students’ Museum.

After its renewal, the museum has expanded its exhibition and activities to cover the student cultures of the entire Aalto community - technology, business and arts. In addition to engineering students’ culture, the museum now also presents the history and present of KY - Aalto University Business Students and TOKYO, Students of Art, Design and Architecture. In addition, AYY’s art collection will also be presented in the exhibition collections. The museum welcomes stories and artefacts from the fields of business and arts to its regularly updated exhibition collection (please contact [email protected]).

The Museum of Student Life can be recognised by a new visual identity designed by AYY’s AD Hilla Mäkelä. The fresh colours of the new visual identity symbolise the new era of the museum, and the open design language of the letter M invites the entire Aalto community to explore the renovated and interesting facilities.

The museum will have regular opening hours starting on Monday, 4 Oct. The Museum of Student Life is open on even-numbered weeks on Mondays from 6pm to 8pm and on Sundays from 2pm to 4pm. Admission is free. During opening hours, there are members of the Museum Committee who will provide guidance on the exhibition. You can also book museum tours for groups outside of opening hours by contacting the museum via this form.

Welcome to explore the renovated museum!

Municipalities must provide COVID-19 passport for those vaccinated outside the EU

The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health has instructed municipalities to create a passport for those who have received the approved vaccines outside the EU. Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa have refused to follow the instructions by stating that this is not technically possible. The decision puts the vaccinated in an unequal position.
