Since 1640 we have contributed significantly to Finnish prosperity and national identity. We have built a fair and an equal society that by many indicators is considered one of the best in the world. Today we want to share our knowledge and to have a strong global impact.
The University of Helsinki was established in 1640.
The University of Helsinki ranks highly among the world's research universities. It develops research for the world.
All teaching at the University of Helsinki is based on research. The Universiyy continuously develop the quality of our teaching based on research and on the assessment of our students.
The International Students want to work in Finland after they graduate, however they often lack professional networks in the Finnish workforce to help give them an edge in finding a job.
To solve this challenge, we have launched the HelsinkiUNI International Talent Programme (HITP), a group mentoring programme, which pairs international students with organisations and companies in Finland who provide mentoring and insight into their work.
For individual alumni and friends of the university, we also have a group-mentoring programme to support international students.
The student dormitory is the largest and can accommodate up to 92 people, with a large common room, two kitchens, a fireplace and two saunas.
Two smaller dormitories, Piikala and Herrala, generally house our longer term guests, teachers and seminar organizers. Each of these dormitories has its own kitchen and common room, and Piikala has its own sauna as well.
The Station also has pet rooms if you wish to bring yours along. Please be sure to ask well in advance about their availability. Please note that there is an additional fee for pet rooms.
Washers and driers are available in Piikala for a small fee. Students can use the washer and drying rooms located in the student dormitory.
You can contact Helsinki University Library either via customer service or by contacting one of the service-specific email addresses or key members of staff.
