  • Any existing reservations for July or later will be transferred to the Office 365 calendar.

The Kumpula Campus Library and the Meilahti Campus Library Terkko are closed from June 24th until July 31st

  • Group work room reservations in Terkko will move to the Office 365 calendar after the summer break on August 1st.

  1. I would like to book a group work room in Viikki library from 1-3pm on June 22, 2016.

  2. You may make the reservation yourself using your Helsinki University Office365 calendar. You’ll find the Viikki reservation calendars from the room list by the name of Infokeskus, Library Group Study Room.

    If you haven’t activated your Helsinki University Office365 account yet, please contact Viikki library customer service and they will help you with your reservation.
