Pop Up Event of the Kumpula Campus Library’s renovation on Wed April 25th at 1 pm – 3 pm

The library is changing in Kumpula – both in its premises and in its functions.

Come by to Physicum’s lobby to learn more

The Helsinki University Library, together with the University Student Services, organizes a pop-up event for students. Come and inquire about the details and give last-minute ideas.

  • Wednesday April 25th at 1 pm – 3 pm in the Physicum’s lobby (Kumpula campus, Gustaf Hällströminkatu 2A)
  • Event page on Facebook (in Finnish)

What is this all about?

The library’s facility upgrade project is connected with a broader project that involves the Faculty of Science and the University’s Student Services.

The library’s aim is to create a versatile and flexible learning environment on the first floor, as well as in a space approximately half of the current area on the second floor.

The first floor of the Kumpula Campus Library re-opens at the beginning of the autumn semester. The electronic exam room is moved from the library’s premises to Chemicum, and there will be some resuffle of group study and reading rooms. Also the library’s book loan and return counters will be refurbished.

The second floor will open later in the autumn. There will be researchers’ workrooms, bookable counseling facilities and study space. You’ll also find student services from the renewed library.
