A couple of events are being held on the 2nd floor of the Campus Library (UbiKampus) in March:
On Friday March 15 a Hackathon will take over the Ubikampus for the entire day, and
On Friday March 22 there will be a Catalysts Coding Contest at 14.30-21.
The Library is now asking your feedback about organizing events: what kind of events you find suitable for the Library’s 2nd floor? At which times and on which areas of the Library would you prefer the events to be held?
Guidance Corner for Helsinki University students will open on the third floor of Kaisa House in February 4th, 2019.
The Corner provides low threshold advice and guidance services for Helsinki university students on, for example, wellbeing, digital skills and job seeking – and even a weekly energising exercise break.
During the spring, the aim is to organise various theme days, e.g. student wellbeing and the promotion of study abilities. There will be also library-related themes. Stay tuned!
On the top floor of the Kumpula Campus Library, a new kind of smart facility for researchers and students will be opened. The library’s second-floor customer facilities are available from Friday, February 1st.
The library’s facility upgrade project is connected with a broader project that involves the Faculty of Science and the University’s Student Services. What is taking place in the space is the first pilot of the Ubikampus project.
The 1,000 square meter pilot premises of the Ubikampus project house altogether 168 workstations and 16 separate rooms bookable with the tablets situated at the doors. More than half of the space is reserved for students, the rest for researchers. Students’ facilities include reading places and group study rooms.
Arrangements on the second floor are still in progress, but you are welcome to check out and test new facilities!
There are a total of 17 computers in the Helsinki University Library that library visitors have been able to use without Helsinki university user account. These guest computers will be phased out on Friday 30 November, 2018.
Even though guest computers are removed, you as a user from outside the University, can still access scientific information from the library terminals. The library terminals allow you to read and search library’s books, articles and e-resources, and read digital theses from the University of Helsinki on the E-Thesis repository. The library terminals will also provide users with access to the Helka database’s customer functions, such as saving your searches and favourites as well as saving references or forwarding them to an email address.

Copying and printing from the the Library terminals with a copy card
The library has some multifunction printers which work with Unigrafia copy cards and can be used without the Helsinki university user ID. You can buy copy cards from library’s customer service desk, check the prices in the price list. For these multifunction printers, you can print articles, reference information, and parts of e-books from the library terminals.
The use of Unigrafia’s copy card for printing will expire at the end of the year 2018. Printing will be handled with the new Print in City -service. Currently, the Print in City service is only available in the Main Library at the Kaisa House.

You can still use the copy cards for copying in the Helsinki University library locations and in the National Library until the end of June 2019. Thereafter, the use of the copy cards will end completely.
Bring your own device
If you’re working on your personal files or searching for information on the internet, you will need to use your own device after November. The library’s customer service desk will provide you with login details for accessing the University’s wireless network HUPnet.

The Main Library’s black chairs are washed. The work starts on the 7th floor on Wednesday 31 October, and continues on the lower floors. Therefore some of the reading places can temporarily lack chairs. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
